LEXINGTON, Ky. (FOX 56) — A winter storm is already underway across the southern plains, and it has its sights set on parts of the Ohio River Valley. While most of us will only see rain, the edge of the snow just skims northern Kentucky for Wednesday morning.

Overnight, the rain will move in. When temperatures hit their low point early Wednesday, we’ll see a mix of rain, sleet, and snow along and north of I-64. Everyone south of that line will just get moderate to heavy rain.


A WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY is in place from noon Wednesday to noon Wednesday for Franklin, Harrison, and Scott counties.

It’s impressive how strong the line of snow to no snow will be. A trace to 2 inches is possible inside the winter weather advisory. Totals from 3 to 6 inches are likely further north. The rest of us get ½’’ to 1’’ of rain.


Snowfall forecast through noon Wednesday
Rainfall forecast through 10 p.m. Wednesday

Temps even surge into the low 50s briefly before the cold front takes over late Wednesday. This will eventually turn us back over to scattered snow, but minimal accumulation is expected Thursday.

Winds will be another factor for Wednesday. From 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., we are under a WIND ADVISORY. Gusty winds from 45+ mph will be likely. If it’s not attached, tie it down.

Beyond this winter storm, we’ll rebound back toward 40 Friday and 50 Saturday.

Our next wave isn’t far off though. Another storm is already set for Sunday. This one is mostly rain again.
