After the overnight and morning round of light snow, things have improved over the course of the daylight hours. What little snow collected on cold surfaces has already started sublimating or melting off, despite abundant cloud coverage. Temperatures are slowly making it above the freezing mark this afternoon and the top out temperature will be in the cold middle 30s.

Flurries and or sleet are both still possible from time to time, but the majority of the showers have been depleted. All that’s really left is cold air and cloud coverage as we transition to the next storm feature. An incoming low will be with us on Tuesday and the cold front attached is the feature aimed for Kentucky. Rain and snow are both possible with this system, but amounts will be minor. This is a weak system passing. Timing will have both rain and snow showers arriving after midnight Tuesday and scattered showers continue through the morning with the majority of precipitation as rain. High terrain and areas north of I-64 have the best chance for snow. Showers will be winding down as we cross into the afternoon. Cloud coverage will decrease as well, bringing back some much-needed sunshine. It won’t stick around long. Wednesday looks to be mostly cloudy with a chance for snow flurries and temperatures stubbornly sticking in the 30s. Showers will return for the end of the week with rain and snow both possible.
