LEXINGTON, Ky. (FOX 56) – After another frigid start to the day, temperatures will warm a little more than where we have been into this afternoon. Surface high pressure scoots eastward as clouds thicken up through this afternoon but southerly winds will usher in a little more warmth. While a stray shower cannot be ruled out, most are dry and breezy with highs in the upper 30s and low 40s.

Thursday high temperatures for central and eastern Kentucky.

Tonight, cloudy skies win out as temperatures fall into the 20s. Late tonight, our next system makes its move into the region while a few flurries and snow showers develop.

Light snow chances hang around for the day Friday as a cold front swings through the Commonwealth. We’ll be battling some drier air which will cut back on the amount of snow we see. With that said, this is a LIGHT event. Most see some flakes with a trace to 1” of snow on the table. High terrain areas could see a little more in far southeastern Kentucky.

Light snow accumulations are possible late tonight through Friday.

Any snow showers or flurries will wrap up Friday evening as temperatures tumble into the low teens once again.

The weekend will feature dry skies but cold temperatures to kick things off. Saturday will bring mostly sunny skies but highs only in the upper 20s. We jump into the low 40s by Sunday, mid-40s by Monday, and then the 50s by Tuesday! The big warm-up will come at the expense of more rain chances into next mid-week.
