LEXINGTON, Ky. (FOX 56) — We’re in for a nice day across Kentucky with a mix of sun and clouds expected through the day. Temperatures will warm into the mid to upper 40s with a few isolated spots hitting 50.
Moisture surges in late tonight with rain breaking out near midnight or after. Enough cold air is possible to see that rain changes to a period of snow near I-64 and points to the north.
The track of the low pressure and temperature profile of the atmosphere will determine where that rain/snow line sets up; it could be further north or south. At this time though, the further north of I-64 you travel, the higher the chance of snow. As warmer air lifts north through Wednesday morning, the snow will change to rain. If you live south of I-64, it will be cold rain throughout the duration.
Here’s how much snow is possible.
Heading into Wednesday afternoon, drier air gets pulled into the region, but occasional showers are still possible. The heaviest rain will fall before lunchtime.
With the low pressure in the region, winds are really going to crank up. We’re looking at wind gusts near 40mph, but they could go stronger.
It will be a relatively mild Wednesday afternoon with temperatures climbing into the upper 40s to mid-50s.
Much colder air moves in Wednesday night into Thursday. Wrap-around moisture will lead to snow showers and flurries developing. Minor snow accumulations are possible on Thursday, especially on elevated surfaces.
