Talk about a crummy way to end the work week. At least now the steady rain is starting to taper off. A pocket of moisture will linger behind the main batch of rain from earlier today. We are tracking an isolated shower and some sprinkles to hang on this evening. Then overnight as temperatures tumble below freezing, a few flurries may fly. Nothing will accumulate.

The big weather headline for the weekend will be a serious November chill. We are only tracking highs in the mid 30s tomorrow. Saturday night will be even colder with lows in the low to mid 20s with a widespread hard freeze expected. The weekend wraps with highs near 50°, which is nearly 10 degrees below normal.​ Despite the unseasonably cold weekend, we are tracking dry conditions and a good deal of sunshine Saturday through the first half of Sunday.

An approaching system will bring a yucky set-up to start the week. This next event will bring the potential for rain changing over to snow. The latest timing brings the change over to snow late Monday night through early Tuesday. We will continue to track the system and the timing of the possible changing precipitation. It is still far too early to put any numbers on any possible accumulation. Stay with the LEX 18 StormTracker Weather as we continue to track the timing of the *possibility* of the first snow of the season.
