Much cooler air has returned to Kentucky on winds from the northwest, and the final few leftover, isolated sprinkles are ending in the mountains and coalfields of the east today.

The next storm system will arrive during the end of the holiday weekend, with scattered showers and thunderstorms on Saturday evening and Sunday. Chilly rain on Monday will mix with a few wet snowflakes on Tuesday, but no significant accumulations are expected.
