Monday through Wednesday are WYMT Severe Weather Alert Days as a series of disturbances will bring light snow accumulations to the mountains that could cause slick travel conditions.
Off and on snow showers are likely tonight with some light accumulations possible. Temperatures will dip into the lower 20s for lows.
Snow squalls will be the name of the weather game on Tuesday. That means that it won't snow all the time, but when it does it could be quite heavy with near white out conditions possible. Highs will only be in the upper 20s. A widespread 1-2 inches of snow are possible on Tuesday with higher amounts in the higher elevations. Slick spots are possible so be sure to use caution while traveling.
More snow squalls will be with us Wednesday as we put down an additional 1-2 inches of widespread snow. Lows will be in the upper teens and highs will be in the mid 20s. A few lingering flurries or snow showers will last into Thursday morning, but we should see some breaks in the clouds by Thursday afternoon. Thursday is looking quite chilly with lows in the upper single digits and highs in the upper 20s.
Valentines Day weekend features another chance of snow on Saturday with some very cold conditions on Sunday. Highs both days will be in the 20s with lows on Saturday in the lower teens and mid single digits look likely on Sunday. We could also see another snow maker early next week.
Accumulations will range from 1-3” for the northern viewing area counties, with a strip of 2-4” for southeastern Kentucky. Higher elevations likely pick up the most with 4-6” possible.
