HAZARD, Ky. (WYMT) - The forecast has started a downward temperature trend and it only gets colder from here.
Look for partly cloudy skies across the area for most of the night with clearing skies late. Temperatures will be really cold late and early tomorrow morning, dropping into the low 20s. Wind chills will make it feel like the teens at times.
The good news for Friday is that it will be mostly sunny. The bad news is that the sun will not feel all that warm. Highs will struggle to get into the mid-30s and wind chills will make it feel colder all day long.
Clouds will start to increase again overnight, but temperatures will still drop down into the low 20s.
All eyes are on Saturday as a clipper system approaches the mountains. Even today, there is still a little bit of uncertainty with the forecast, but we do believe this system, if it tracks the way we think it will, could still bring us some light accumulations.
Right now, we're expecting a dusting for most of the area, but areas near the border, especially in the higher elevations, could see up to an inch. The further west you go, the better chance you may just see flakes.
It's also going to be cold on Saturday, with highs only getting into the mid to upper 30s. Lows will drop into the teens with wind chills make it feel even colder.
A few flakes stick around early Sunday morning, but skies should start to clear later in the day. It's still going to be cold with highs topping out in the mid-30s and lows dropping into the upper 20s.
Monday brings a brief rebound on temperatures and conditions, but don't get used to it. We'll top out in the upper 40s under sun and clouds before dropping into the upper 20s that night.
Tuesday, another system could bring us some more snow, but it's still early to tell how much at this point. It will be cold all week after that, with highs staying in the low to mid-30s during the day and dropping into the teens and 20s overnight.
