LEXINGTON, Ky. (FOX 56) — As the colder air moves in, the rain will change to snow northwest to southeast across Kentucky this evening.

In the Bluegrass, the change from rain to snow will occur before 9 p.m. in most cases through central Kentucky and after that into southern and southeastern Kentucky.
