We’re still tracking light to moderate snow showers across the state but the end is near. By the early afternoon the line of snow will move out of the Bluegrass and start dissipating out over southeastern counties. Flurries to light snow showers could last into the evening for locations south of the Bluegrass/Mountain Parkways. Slick conditions will persist, especially on bridges and overpasses.

All that’s left for today will be skies gradually clearing from the north as a small round of high pressure builds. This clearing will help melt snow and dry roads so ice doesn’t accumulate overnight. However, southern counties will be under the cloud canopy all day, so watch for light morning ice Sunday. The morning ice will be caused by the rapidly dropping temperatures as skies continue clearing overnight for the entire state. We’re expecting lows in the low 20s Sunday morning. If we reach 21 degrees in Lexington that will tie the previous daily low temperature record set back in 1936.

Due to these extremely low temperatures a FREEZE WARNING will be in effect tonight through 10:00 am Sunday. Protect sensitive vegetation.
