Midnight Update:  Skies have been clearing, with temperatures quickly falling, and freezing fog developing.  Patchy dense fog will reduce visibilites through early Tuesday, with slick spots possible on untreated surfaces.  Tuesday morning low temperatures will start off in the upper teens with highs Tuesday afternoon around 35 degrees.  Rain and freezing rain will develop Tuesday afternoon, with heavy rainfall at times.  An Areal Flood Watch has been issued for Eastern Kentucky from late Tuesday into early Wednesday.  Rainfall totals for late Tuesday into Wednesday look to be between 0.50" to over 1.50".  Tuesday night into Wednesday morning low temperatures will fall to around 29 degrees, with Wednesday high temperatures around 34 degrees.  There will be a chance for a light, slushy snow accumulation for areas north of I-64 on Wednesday. 
A good soaking rain, with a little wintry mix and light snow is possible midweek, with another chance for a wintry mix this coming weekend.

TONIGHT: Skies will be partly to mostly cloudy overnight, with overnight low temperatures around 19 degrees. Slicks spots will continue to be possible overnight into early Tuesday for any untreated surfaces.

TUESDAY: Afternoon high temperatures will be around 35 degrees. Skies will be mostly cloudy with rain and freezing rain developing Tuesday afternoon. Rainfall will be heavy at times Tuesday night into early Wednesday, with rainfall amounts from 0.50” to 1.50”. This heavy rainfall may lead to localized flooding issues, due to the ground already being saturated from the recent snow.

TUESDAY NIGHT: The heaviest rainfall will be overnight Tuesday into early Wednesday morning. Overnight low temperatures will be around 29 degrees by early Wednesday morning, so freezing rain will be possible.

WEDNESDAY: Rainfall will diminish during the day Wednesday, with a changeover to a light, slushy snow possible. The best chance for any accumulating snow, looks to be along and north of I-64, with a dusting to 2” of snow possible. Wednesday high temperatures will be around 34 degrees.

THURSDAY: Drier and colder conditions return for Thursday, with partly sunny skies and a high of only 24 degrees.

FRIDAY: Skies will be partly to mostly cloudy with a high of 30 degrees.

WEEKEND: A wintry mix is possible on Saturday, yet most of the latest weather data is delaying the bulk of the precipitation until Sunday, with a better chance for a wintry mix. Saturday high temperatures will be around 35 degrees, with Sunday high temperatures around 32 degrees.
