Overachieving Clipper Brings Most Snow of Season

Overachieving Clipper Brings Most Snow of Season

5.3" of snow fell last night and into this morning in Lexington, with a few parts of Bath and Rowan Counties seeing 6.5".
A Flood Advisory remains in effect for Whitley County, where the Cumberland River has crested but continues to run high.

Last night's Alberta Clipper tore through the region and continues to rapidly exit to the east this morning, leaving 5.3" of snow as the official Lexington total, and up to 6.5" near the Bath / Rowan County line near Farmers.

Today will feature the end of the accumulating snow, with off-and-on snow showers, which will taper off around midday in the Bluegrass area, and later this afternoon in eastern Kentucky.  It will be unseasonably cold with temperatures running about 15 degrees below normal, peaking only around 37.  Tonight will be cold with slick spots due to re-freezing, as lows dip to 24.  Tuesday and Wednesday will feature bright skies as high pressure slides in, dramatically boosting temperatures back to near - and eventually a bit above - average for early March.  Scattered showers and thunderstorms will arrive with mild weather from Thursday into Sunday as a series of disturbances cross Kentucky.
