Afternoon Update:
A Winter Weather Advisory continues for eastern Kentucky through 7 Friday night.

Outside of a few flurries, the snow in Lexington has come to an end. Eastern Kentucky continues to see snow this afternoon and could still see up to an inch of snow. Temperatures remain below freezing, so continue to take it slow on area roadways. Patches of ice and snow could still be causing slick spots. After we start Saturday in the low 20s, the sun should return for Saturday afternoon pushing temperatures into the upper 30s.

Join Chief Meteorologist Jennifer Schack at 5, 6, and 11 tonight for the latest on this winter weather.

_______________________________________________________________________

Winter officially began this morning at 6:12... and it feels like it! Temperatures are starting the day in the mid and upper 20s in many areas. Breezy winds are making it feel more like the teens. Light snow continues to fall, mainly east of Interstate 75. Watch for some slick spots on area roadways as you head out, especially on bridges and overpasses.

Skies will remain mostly cloudy this afternoon with temperatures only making it into the low and mid 30s this afternoon. Lexington will see a high near 34°. Most snow flurries will stay in eastern Kentucky with accumulations up to an inch.

The icy cold weather continues this evening as we dip back into the low 20's by early Saturday morning.

It will at least look warmer for your Saturday as we see mostly sunny conditions return, helping us warm into the upper 30's in many areas.
