The LEX 18 Threat Index has been raised to a Level 1. We are tracking evening rain showers to change over to a wet snow overnight. But before we get there, your Friday is shaping up to be a pretty nice day with highs near 60°. Clouds will increase throughout the day before a few rain showers arrive late-day. Much colder air will rush in, which will change rain over to a wet snow after midnight. Snow will continue to fall through Saturday morning. A Winter Weather Advisory will be in effect during this same time. Slushy accumulations will be possible. Most of us will see one to two inches of snow through the first half of Saturday. Locally higher amounts will be possible the mountains of southeastern Kentucky. We are tracking snow to end around lunchtime tomorrow.

Skies will gradually clear through Saturday night. It will very cold to start Sunday with lows in the lower 20s. Temperatures will remain chilly through early next week with highs in the 40s. We are tracking another chance for rain and/or flurries Monday and Tuesday morning. The temperature trend looks more spring-like late next week.
