Midnight Update: Skies have remained mostly clear so far tonight, with more clouds developing through early Friday morning, and snow showers mixed with rain developing through the afternoon and evening hours of Friday.  Higher amounts of snow are expected along and north of I-64, where a Winter Weather Advisory is in effect, and where 2" to 5" are possible.  The worst of the snow looks to be between 2pm Friday to 2am Saturday, where heavy snowfall will be possible at times, and slick roadways will be possible.  Friday afternoon high temperatures will be around 34 degrees, with overnight low temperatures falling to 17 degrees by early Saturday morning.  Saturday will feature some breaks in the clouds, with a cold high temperature of 28 degrees.  Another chance for some light snow showers will be possible Saturday night into early Sunday.  Sunday will begin our warming trend, with high temperatures around 39 degrees, with upper 40s returning for President's Day Monday.  Temperatures will continue to get warmer next week, with highs in the lower 60s by next Thursday. 
Winter Weather Advisories are in effect for counties along and north of I-64, and as far south as Madison County, where 2” to 5” of snow is possible on Friday. Areas across Southern Kentucky look to have rain mixing in with snow, which will diminish snowfall accumulations, where a dusting to 2” of snow is possible. Temperatures remain cold for the start of the weekend, with warmer temperatures and rain chances for next week.

TONIGHT: Clouds will increase across Kentucky, with the chance for some light snow showers developing for Friday morning. Overnight low temperatures will be around 25 degrees.

FRIDAY / VALENTINES DAY: Mostly cloudy skies will continue for Friday, with snow showers becoming more widespread and heavier by the afternoon and evening hours. Due to an expected heavy, wet snow late Friday, traveling looks to be messy during the afternoon and evening hours for the Lexington Metro area, and areas along and north of I-64. Friday high temperatures will be around 34 degrees. Snowfall accumulations look to average from a dusting to 4”, with isolated higher amounts.

FRIDAY NIGHT: Snow showers will linger into Friday night, with overnight low temperatures around 17 degrees.

PRESIDENT’S DAY WEEKEND: After a cold start to the weekend, a warming trend will begin for next week. Saturday will remain cold with a high of only 28 degrees, under mostly cloudy skies. There will be a chance for a few more light snow showers Saturday night, with overnight low temperatures around 22 degrees by daybreak Sunday. Sunday will be a little milder, with a high of 39 degrees and partly cloudy skies, yet even a few snow showers will be possible. Temperatures will be back in the upper 40s for President’s Day Monday, with the chance for some rain, as another cold front moves through.

NEXT WEEK: Temperatures continue to warm through next week with high temperatures around 50 degrees next Tuesday, and in the lower 60s by next Thursday! Rain chances will continue to linger through next week, as a series of weather disturbances continue to move through.
