A Winter Weather Advisory has been issued by the National Weather Service for all counties in the ABC 36 viewing area from Saturday night through Sunday morning due to the possibility of hazardous travel conditions at times.
Midnight Update: Most of the snow showers have evaporated before falling to the surface tonight, dramatically decreasing our chance for much accumulation of snow. There is only a slim chance that a few rain showers in western Kentucky could still hold together long enough to transition to snow and bring some minor accumulations to our area in the first few hours of our Sunday.
Air temperatures have climbed slightly tonight, into the mid 30s across central Kentucky. Unfortunately, road temperatures in portions of the region are still below freezing... so IF the snow reaches us, we could still see a few slick spots on our roads.
Forecast: Snow showers are moving into Kentucky, and will continue at times tonight. Accumulations will likely stay under one inch of snow, with most areas staying under 1/2 inch of snow. By Sunday morning, most snow will be over with a few flurries still in the sky. Temperatures will fall into the upper 20s overnight.
While snowfall accumulations will not be very high, the snow could still cause reduced visibilities as it falls and create a few slick spots on the roads Saturday night into early Sunday.
Skies will begin to clear Sunday afternoon with plenty of sunshine by the end of the afternoon. Highs will be in the mid 30s.
We could see some sunshine to start your Martin Luther King Day, but clouds are expected to increase in coverage during the day with highs warming into the upper 30s.
