We are currently at the crest of a hill on roller coaster temperature ride. After sitting in the 50s today, there will be another big drop tonight. This batch of cold air will stick around a little longer. An approaching strong cold front kicked up the wind and has pushed showers through the Commonwealth. Once the front crosses we are tracking temperatures to quickly drop. Lingering rain will change to snow later tonight. Very minor accumulations, an inch or less for central Kentucky, will be possible by morning. The higher elevations of southeastern Kentucky could pick up at most two inches.​

Some flurries and a little more light snow will be possible with an Arctic front that arrives Thursday night. More than anything this front will send temperatures down another level. Highs will only reach the low 20s to end the week. With an Arctic air mass firmly in place through next week, we are tracking a “parade” of clipper to bring rounds of light snow to Bluegrass into the middle of next week.
