EF 1 Tornado Confirmed... Now Cold, Clearing

An EF 1 Tornado has been confirmed in Scott County, the first January tornado in the Lexington metro area. Now we are cold and dry.

Gradual clearing is is underway from west to east, and sunshine is helping temperatures climb into the middle 30s in most areas.  We will remain partly cloudy and fairly quiet tonight with lows in the middle to upper 20s.  A weak storm system will cross the Ohio Valley on Thursday, bringing plenty of clouds to the area.  Moisture will be limited in Kentucky, but a light wintry mix will be possible across central and northern parts of the area, with potential for a few sprinkles or light rain showers to the south on Thursday afternoon.  A larger storm system will arrive on Friday evening.  Most of the precipitation tied to the early-weekend storm will fall in the form of liquid rain with temperatures a bit above freezing, but a few sleet pellets can not be ruled out at the onset in northeastern Kentucky.  Rain will linger into Saturday morning.  The warming trend will continue, taking us into the 50s for Sunday, Monday and Tuesday afternoons.  Yet another disturbance will produce rain on Sunday into Monday.  Dry weather should return as mild weather persists on Tuesday.
