We are tracking two chances for wintry weather over the next four days. One will have little impact in the Bluegrass, while the other is shaping up to be more interesting.

Starting with tonight, a narrow band of rain and snow showers will be guided through the area along a fading cold front. Activity will be around through the wee hours of the morning. This system will have limited moisture to work with so little to no accumulation is expected. Some may wake up to a localized coating on grassy surfaces. Otherwise that’s it. The cold front will bring an air mass change. We’ll go from chilly today to colder tomorrow with highs in the mid 30s.

The start of the weekend will be quiet but cold. A system that tracks to our south late weekend system still bares watching. The trend has been to keep the accumulating wintry precipitation farther south over recent days. But we are still tracking the potential for more widespread rain and snow showers. Southern and southeastern counties are at a higher risk for accumulation than Lexington and the surrounding Bluegrass. Stay tuned for updates as we continue to track this winter system.
