Cold rain showers continue to slide east across southern and southeastern Kentucky, but most areas along and north of I-64 remain dry.  Low pressure passing to the south of Kentucky is helping to draw cold air from the north, and a few of the rain showers are beginning to transition to a rain / sleet mix.  Sleet has been reported over the past four hours in Richmond, Booneville and Whitehouse, as well as in southern Breathitt County.  Sleet and even a few snowflakes may mix with the final few showers in southern and eastern Kentucky late today, but no frozen accumulations are anticipated.  Saturday will be a bit brighter with partly sunny skies, and a passing disturbance may spark an isolated snow flurry to the northeast.  High pressure will promote a partly sunny, pleasant Sunday with highs in the middle 40s.  Early next week, temperatures will warm into the lower 50s and rain showers will return as low pressure strengthens into the Ohio Valley.  The storm system will end with a few snow showers as colder air arrives at midweek.  The first day of winter will be Thursday, with partly sunny and chilly weather.
