LEXINGTON, Ky. (FOX 56) – After an active start to the New Year, mother nature will calm things down quite a bit as we head through mid-week.

With mainly clear skies throughout tonight as lows bottom out in the upper teens and low 20s. Despite the cold start Tuesday, temperatures rebound into the upper 40s under mostly sunny skies.

Conditions remain dry but turn breezy with the passage of a cold front by Wednesday. Once again, highs are near 50 degrees win out under partly sunny skies.

The first cold front sets the stage for what will be a colder day Thursday. Cloudy skies quickly take over Thursday morning halting temperatures to the lower 30s by the afternoon hours. A quickly developing system over the mid-Mississippi Valley will swing in from the southwest as light snow breaks develop. As of right now, light snow accumulations look possible and could be a more widespread hit for the state.

Details on the next snow chance:

  • Light snow would start Thursday afternoon and wrap up early Friday morning.
  • Southern and southeastern Kentucky could start as rain and switch to snow.
  • Precipitation type and accumulation amounts will hinge on the exact track of the low.
  • Conditions are dry Friday but very cold. Highs only hit the mid-20s with lows deep into the teens. Some single digit lows will be possible.
