Rain shower move in tonight, snow arrives for the new week
HAZARD, Ky. (WYMT) - We are continuing our Severe Weather Alert Day coverage as winter weather is expected heading into the new week! A Winter Weather Advisory will go into effect in Eastern Kentucky from Monday evening through Tuesday morning.
This evening we will continue to see dreary conditions as clouds increase across the skies. We should stay dry until those later evening hours tonight.
A cold front moves through tonight bringing rain chances with it. We will see widespread showers overnight, and they could get a little heavy at times. By Monday morning, most locations should be in the low 40s.
Our high on Monday will be at midnight as temperatures continue to crash behind the cold front. As temperatures drop, we will see a wintry mix as those rain showers migrate over to snow showers. Models are starting to line up on snowfall, and are showing the switch happening in the late afternoon/early evening hours Monday. Overnight lows will drop into the mid to upper 20′s! Make sure to turn the heat on, and that your car is filled up with at least a quarter tank of gas.
Highs on Tuesday will only get into the 30′s! Some moisture sticks around as well so we will continue to see scattered snow showers throughout the day. Models are showing most areas receiving a dusting to 2″ in snowfall. Those higher elevations around the Kentucky-Virginia and Kentucky-West Virginia border can expect a little more.
By Wednesday, the sunshine and dry conditions return. Highs will be around the mid-40s and lows will drop into the low 30′s.
The nice weather doesn’t last long. By Thursday, we will start to see clouds move back in and stray chances possible. Highs will be in the mid-40s and lows will sit in the mid to upper 30s.
Friday looks to be even soggier. Scattered showers look to move into the region in the evening and continue into our weekend. This is still pretty far out, so we will keep an eye on this trend, for now.
