A Winter Weather Advisory continues overnight into Wednesday for all counties. Hazardous travel conditions are expected across the region. Blowing snow will cause reduced visibilities along with messy road conditions.
Midnight Update: All rain has now switched to snow. Scattered snow showers will continue overnight into the Wednesday morning commute along with breezy winds. The latest information is showing we could come in on the low side of the snow totals described below.
Temperatures are at or just below freezing in most areas, allowing snow to accumulate. Here at ABC 36, on the east side of Lexington, we currently have a dusting of snow.
Meteorologist Michael Estime will have the latest on the snow, road conditions, and school closings starting at 5 a.m. on Good Morning Kentucky on ABC 36.
Strong, gusty winds will accompany some of our evening rain showers. Make sure outdoor objects are secured. Later this evening, our rain will transition into snow.
Snow showers will continue into the Wednesday morning commute. Temperatures will be low enough for accumulations on the grass and roadways. By late morning, snow totals should be between 1 and 3 inches in the Bluegrass. We will see slightly less in southern Kentucky with snow totals between 1 and 2 inches. Higher terrain in eastern Kentucky could see 2 to 4 inches.
Precipitation will become more scattered late Wednesday morning. As temperatures climb into the mid 30s, we could see some of the snow transition back to a wintry mix before ending.
The sun returns on Thursday and we start to warm back up!
