It wasn’t the pretty of days, but we were dry and just chilly, not cold. We’ll be wishing for a day like today once winter roars in tomorrow. The key players will be a lot of Arctic air and a big Pacific storm system that is racing across the country.
A Winter Weather Advisory will be in effect Sunday for areas near and north of I-64. This fast-moving system will bring periods of rain and snow to the area tomorrow. It appears most of us will see a cold, 35° rain during the middle of the day. Colder air will rush in late day with an Arctic front. Precipitation then changes over to all snow. Light snowfall amounts of one to two inches are possible for the Bluegrass and northern Kentucky through Sunday night. If you live south of I-64, you may still see snow but accumulations will be minimal. Roads will become slippery as the snow starts to stick and temperatures tumble Sunday evening. The other part of the story is the cold. Temperatures will remain freezing through Thursday afternoon, at the earliest.
