Midnight Update: The rain has arrived! Scattered showers, some heavy at times, will continue to move through as we head into Tuesday morning. The transition to wintry mix or snow is still possible, but likely won't last long in the Bluegrass.

We are still mild as we approach midnight. Lexington is at 51° with most areas still in the low and mid 50s. Jackson has fallen to 49°. Everyone will be much cooler tomorrow!
______________________________________________________________________

After hitting 59° Monday afternoon, it's back to reality Tuesday! Rain showers will push into the Bluegrass around 9 Monday evening and continue into early Tuesday morning as our next cold front passes through. The rain will begin to mix with snow early Tuesday, some of which will completely change to snow. Temperatures will drop into the mid 30s by morning, and should be too warm for any snow accumulation. In the higher elevation of eastern Kentucky, some slushy or slick roads will be possible for the morning commute.

Skies will begin to clear Tuesday afternoon. Winds will remain strong out of the west through the day, and temperatures will only make it into the upper 30s.

On Wednesday, clear skies will help temperatures drop into the upper teens to start the day. We will rebound into the mid and upper 30s Wednesday afternoon with our next batch of rain arriving Wednesday night.
