Another shot at winter arrives later this evening and into tonight as we are tracking a low pressure system which is set to roll through the Deep South. It will be sending some moisture our way, but dry air at the surface will win out early. As temperatures take a dive through the night, the chance to see some snowflakes fall and stick here in Kentucky is there, but it will be light accumulations and mostly on elevated surfaces like your car or roof. Totals will stay less than half an inch for most of the state, including Lexington, with the exception of far southeastern KY which could pick up a couple of inches especially near the mountains. Lows overnight will drop off to the upper 20s so a couple of slick spots on roadways overnight and through Friday morning will also be a possibility.

Take it easy in your travels through Friday as a few more snow flurries could continue until midday. We won't warm up much either. High temperatures for Friday will only rest in the mid 30s with some wind. The weekend is looking to shape up some as we remain dry with the hope for some sunshine again. Eventually, we will see the 40s return, but not until next week. The coming days will be wintry ones with highs camping out in the 30s and a couple more rain/snow chances early next week.
