Some weather models are showing the possibility for a significant snow across the Appalachians midweek next week, with Central and Eastern Kentucky being effected as well. Other weather models are showing less in the way of impactful wintry precipitation. Either way, we'll need to keep a close watch on the potential travel impacts Tuesday through Thursday of next week.

The weather gets interesting beginning next Tuesday, as a low pressure system drops out of Canada, and gives us colder temperatures and the chance for wintry precipitation.
