The last of the rain/snow showers are exiting the state via the eastern counties. Accumulations of snow have been minor and mostly on grass between I-64 and the southern parkways. Minor ice accumulations have also occurred in Southern Kentucky. Roads, south of I-64, will be slippery for a while. Otherwise, it’s cloudy and cold this morning.

What has collected on the ground or your car will be gone by the afternoon as temperatures rise above freezing and into the low 40s this afternoon. There will be some sunshine through the afternoon and you should enjoy it, as there will be very little of that this week. A second weekend storm will bring more rain and even a little wintry mix Sunday. As the moisture arrives early tomorrow, temperatures will be around freezing from I-64 north. That could lead to a small amount of freezing drizzle early Sunday for areas north of the interstate. A minor amount of ice could accumulate, especially on bridges and overpasses. If anything, it will be a glaze, but roads will still be slippery. As that wintry line pushes north, rain takes over and scattered showers will be around through the day tomorrow.
