While we have a nice weekend in store, all eyes are on early next week as a wintry pattern takes over with snow showers and a blast of frigid air.
Clear skies and dry conditions will continue for your Saturday evening and night ahead. Temperatures will be on the chilly/cold side as we cool through the lower 40s and into 30s by tonight as well. While it will be cold out by late tonight, fortunately, we won’t have much wind around, so windchill values won’t be an issue. Some patchy fog may also move in overnight for areas.
By Sunday, fog from the overnight and into the morning could still hang around for many areas, but then it will clear reasonably quickly once the sun rises. Temperatures to begin the day will also be in the mid to lower 30s before warming up into the mid to upper 50s by the afternoon and evening. While we will have some early sunshine, clouds will be increasing throughout the day ahead of our next system. As we head into Sunday evening and night, showers will start to increase from the southwest and move to the northeast overnight.
Showers will continue into Monday across our region, but as the low-pressure moves to the northeast, we will start to see a shift from the northwest, which will bring a big cool down. By Monday afternoon and evening, showers will switch over to snow from central Kentucky to the east as we move later into the day. Snow showers and gusty winds will continue through Tuesday before drier air moves in for the middle of the week. As far as snowfall accumulation, most regions could pick up light to almost 2″ of snow, and then isolated areas could pick up 3″-5″. There is still a lot to watch with this system, so we’ll have more updates to come.
