Noon Update: Temperatures are climbing into the mid 50s in most areas with Lexington at 55° during the noon lunch hour. Skies continue to be filled with some high clouds, but plenty of sunshine is getting through between the clouds.
For now, the latest computer models continue to suggest the same scenario described below for tonight's blast of cold air, rain, sleet, and snow.
Chief Meteorologist Jason Myers will have the latest on our winter preview tonight at 5, 6, and 11 on ABC 36.
Happy Veterans Day, everyone! High pressure will slide to our east today, allowing for increasing cloud cover this afternoon. Temperatures will be just slightly warmer than Sunday, with afternoon highs in the mid and upper 50s.
Our winds will start to pick up tonight as a strong cold front moves from north to south through Kentucky. Rainfall could begin north of Interstate 64 before midnight. Showers will move south overnight as the rain switches to sleet and snow in the early hours of Tuesday.
Temperatures will drop to about 30° Tuesday morning, but the roads should stay warm enough to prevent any accumulations. Roads should just be wet as you head to work and school. If we see a burst of heavier snow, we could see some snow stick to the grass for a bit.
Most of the snow should come to an end by the afternoon. Temperatures will only make it into the mid 30s by the end of the day with winds gusting up to 30mph. Skies will begin to clear late in the day allowing for some late-afternoon sunshine.
We'll start Wednesday in the low 20s and climb into the upper 30s in the afternoon with mostly sunny skies.
