Update: A Winter Weather Advisory will be in effect from Friday evening through Saturday evening for much of north central Kentucky including Lexington and Frankfort. Hazardous travel conditions will be possible during these times.

Temperatures are slowly climbing with the help of a few breaks in the cloud cover and light southerly winds early this afternoon. Lexington is at 32° at the noon hour, but many surrounding areas are well into the mid and upper 30s. It still looks like many areas could see up to 1-2" of snow on the ground by Saturday morning with some small aditional snow falling through Saturday night. Areas further south of the Bluegrass are likely to see more rain than snow.
