After a lovely Friday, we will keep the same weather trend going for half of the weekend too. Temperatures will drop sharply overnight with most bottoming out in the mid teens by dawn. We won't warm up much through the day either, highs are expected to only reach the mid 30s in the afternoon. A low pressure will come sweeping through the Midwest, dropping some snow and ice as it comes, but by the time it gets to us, temperatures will be warmer than freezing, so we are talking about some rain.

Quite a bit of soaking rain actually through Sunday night and into Monday. Most models say some spots like western and southern KY could see over two inches of rain by late Monday night. Lexington is looking to receive around 1.5 inches of rain or so. The best chance for snow and ice will remain well north of the Ohio River. The warmest day for us will be Monday, in the low 50s. After that rain, we will dry back out for a couple of days with temperatures back in the low 40s (seasonable) before another round of potential rain/snow arrives on Thursday.
