We have seen all sorts of weather this week which has proved true the saying: "if you don't like the weather in Kentucky, stick around because it will change soon." We began the work week with the 50s and 60s with thunderstorms and flooding rains, then cold air rolled in sending us a few inches of snow. Today, we've seen sunshine and this weekend we have another low pressure which will keep us on our toes. Overnight tonight and Saturday morning will be dry and quiet, but as the warm front drives through the Midwest and into Kentucky it will begin to warm us up just in time for the onset of the precipitation. We are likely to begin as some light rain and at some point in the afternoon we could see a brief change-over to a wintry mix before changing back over to more rain Saturday night.

Temperatures should be warm enough (upper 30s/low 40s) that we won't have to worry about snow accumulation, but the place that has the best chance to see a quick slushy accumulation will be northern KY north of I-64. As we head into Sunday, we will see more scattered rain showers as temperatures roll up near 50 degrees. On the back side of the low pressure, it will pull down more cold air sending us a few lighter snow showers off and on for Monday. Overall, our snow accumulation chances with this system are still low. Things should settle down some into next week as we dry out for a couple of days with temperatures bouncing around anywhere from the 30s to low 50s again.
