We have been the recipient of some moderate rain thus far this evening, but some spots are seeing a few bits of snow or sleet mixing in with the rain even in central and southern KY. The weather models are coming into agreement more that we will likely see rain through this evening and overnight as temperatures will stay above freezing. The ground will be warmer as well, so no extra snow or ice accumulation is expected overnight, unless it's in the higher terrain in southeastern KY. Into Sunday, we are looking at less rain as most of the moisture will begin to wrap up by midday and temperatures will range between the mid 40s and low 50s across the state. Expect some dry time during the afternoon before our next round of winter sets in late Sunday night. Rain totals between this evening and Sunday evening will be around half an inch for most.

As the low pressure slides northeast, we will see a nice wrap-around of cold air and some snow showers throughout the night Sunday into Monday. Since temperatures will drop sharply into the low 30s overnight, it is looking more likely that we see some accumulation out of these snow showers. By the end of the day Monday, we could see a good 1" to 2" of snow collection. That will make for a wintry start to the new work week and new month, and the action doesn't stop there. More rounds of rain and snow showers are forecast through much of the next couple of weeks as temperatures bounce around a good bit.
