LEXINGTON, Ky. (FOX 56) – After an icy and dicey start to this Tuesday, areas of patchy drizzle continue this afternoon and could lead to additional slick spots and a glaze of ice for some, especially south and east. Temperatures remain cold for all of central and eastern Kentucky this afternoon with thermometers only in the 30s.
All eyes then turn toward our next round of wintry weather that moves into the region Tuesday night. This time, the best chances are across our southern and southeastern zones. An additional Winter Weather Advisory likely rolls out for some of these areas later today.
Activity ramps up late this evening and into tonight across our south.
Light freezing rain and some sleet break out tonight for our southern zones with most precipitation along and south of I-64.
As we approach midnight, a good chunk of our southern communities will start seeing some icy precipitation in the form of freezing rain or some sleet. Near and along the I-64 corridor, some flakes/sleet could fly at times.
Wednesday weather forecast
Skies trend drier early Wednesday morning with light ice and sleet accumulations possible. Negative impacts on travel in these areas can be expected.
Ice, sleet, snow potential
Amounts up to .10″ of ice look possible south with some sleet mixed in. More to the north near the I-64 corridor, these areas could see a light coating of sleet/snow.
Be sure to check back in with the FOX 56 Weather Authority for additional information and updates regarding our wintry weather chances for tonight.
