LEXINGTON, Ky. (FOX 56) – Most of the area is under a Winter Storm Warning until 10 p.m. Thursday for the potential of several inches of snow.

The snow will become likely by lunch and continue into the afternoon before tapering off from west to east during the evening.

Road conditions will deteriorate through the day as temperatures fall through the 20s. Snow amounts will range from 2-6 inches in the Bluegrass to 4-8 inches in southern and southeastern Kentucky.

If you don’t have to travel this afternoon and evening, stay home.

The snow ends this evening, and it will be frigid with lows in the single digits to lower teens. If the sky clears, single digits will be likely.

Dangerous wind chills (feels-like temperatures) will range from 0 to -10 by Friday morning.

We’ll have a mix of sun and clouds on Friday, but the big weather story will be the frigid temperatures. Highs may struggle to get out of the teens. With the cold, the snow isn’t going anywhere on Friday.
