A Winter Weather Advisory has been issued by the National Weather Service for most counties with the exception of far northern and far southern Kentucky. A wintry mix of precipitation will likely make for hazardous travel at times Sunday night into Monday morning.

Midnight Update:
Clouds are starting to build into southern Kentucky from Tennessee ahead of our next system. For now we are dry, but rain showers will arrive Sunday morning.

Temperatures are mild for now. Most areas are between 40° and 50° with Lexington at 50 as of midnight.

It will be a chilly Sunday morning as temperatures drop into the mid 30s overnight. More clouds will build in by morning, with rain showers to start the day Sunday.

We may see a slight increase in temperatures late Sunday morning, but they will gradually fall in the afternoon. As colder air from the north meets the rain from the south in the afternoon, we will see a transition to sleet and eventually to snow in central and eastern Kentucky. Far southern Kentucky will see mainly just rain.

Most areas that see snow will only experience accumulations between a dusting to an inch, but heavier snow could help some cities see between 1" and 2", with a few locations up to 3" by Monday morning.

Most of the rain and snow will come to an end by Monday afternoon, with temperatures climbing into the low 40s.

The rest of the work week will be much more seasonable for this time of year.
