Snow tonight could cause dangerous driving conditions

(WYMT) - Snow now through early Wednesday morning could cause slick road conditions and limited visibility, so if you have to be out driving tonight or tomorrow morning, be very careful!

Wintry mix this afternoon changed over to all snow this evening. Those snow showers will continue on and off through the overnight hours and into Wednesday morning as temperatures fall into the lower 20s.

Most of eastern Kentucky will see a light coating of 0.25-0.5” of snow from this system, but some areas in southeastern Kentucky, Virginia and West Virginia could see up to an inch of snow. Locally higher amounts closer to 1.5-2” cannot be ruled out.

A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect for portions of eastern Kentucky, Virginia and West Virginia through Wednesday morning due to possibly dangerous road conditions this will cause.

Some of the snow will linger in southeastern Kentucky through Wednesday morning, but we will be dry by midday, and we will even see some breaks in the clouds Wednesday afternoon. Despite those peeks of sunshine, Wednesday will be cold with high temperatures in the upper 30s.

Extended Forecast
A high pressure system will move in to our south on Thursday. That will bring us more sunshine and cause our winds to shift and bring warmer air up from the southwest, so temperatures will climb into the mid 50s Thursday afternoon under mostly sunny skies.

That sunshine won’t last long. Another low pressure system will begin to make its way into our region for the end of the week. That will bring us scattered rain chances beginning Friday afternoon and continuing on and off through early next week.
