This weekend has certainly kept us all on our toes, and we're not finished with the winter weather just yet. Another blast will begin to shift our direction as some cold air returns. So far today, temperatures have been up into the upper 40s/50 degrees southeast while central KY has seen the low to mid 40s most of the day plus we still had a few rain showers to meander through the state. That was a nice break from winter, but now we shift our attention to the next snow. Tonight, as temperatures cool, the leftover rain will transition back over to snow again toward late evening/midnight. Overnight temperatures will dip into the upper 20s so what snow falls will stick on grass first, then the roads. Into Monday and a brand new month, things stay active with more snow showers off and on through most of the day.

Okay, so for snow totals we are looking at some accumulation tonight and through the day Monday. For the Bluegrass region (central KY) we are thinking 1" to 3" with a couple of isolated spots up to 4". A chunk of southeastern KY, especially the mountains, could pick up 4" or more. For areas around and west of I-65, a 1" to 2" ought to cover it then the further west in KY you go the less snow you will see. This setup of this system is not like the one we had late Wednesday, but totals could be similar.

A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect for our area tonight through Monday 7 pm due to the snow coating roads and making travel hazardous. Limit your travel overnight and through Monday if possible. If not, take plenty of extra time and slow down. Bridges and overpasses will collect snow first. High temperatures Monday will not exceed the freezing mark, so what falls Monday will continue to stick. Snow showers will likely wrap up late Monday or early Tuesday then we calm down for a day or so and warm back up into the 40s.
