Multiple snow chances over the next few days

(WYMT) - Our Severe Weather Alert Day has ended after the bulk of snow showers have moved out of Eastern Kentucky. We will still look at a few flurries later this evening but most locations will remain dry and cold overnight.

Tonight
Mostly cloudy skies will stick around with a few flurries overnight tonight. Low temperatures will drop down into the mid-20s. Due to freezing temperatures, a few surfaces will refreeze overnight and into Thursday morning.

Thursday-Friday
Our second system arrives as we head into your Thursday night. Thursday will feature highs in the lower 40s with a mix of sun and clouds. As we head into the evening hours, clouds will increase and a weak front will provide another round of light snow in Eastern Kentucky. This system, however, looks to be much weaker across the viewing area. A light coating looks to be the best case scenario for Thursday night and Friday morning. This should not cause widespread problems.

By Friday morning, a few flakes will continue. Eventually, we will see highs climb into the upper 30s, melting any accumulation in the mountains. By Friday afternoon, we will look at another mix of sun and clouds.

This Weekend
The first half of the weekend looks okay. Saturday will feature mostly cloudy skies will highs in the upper 30s. A wintry mix will arrive late Saturday night around midnight and continue through Sunday and into Monday.

We are receiving a lot of questions about the weekend system for Kentucky. What we can tell you at this point is a winter system does look to impact the mountains early Sunday morning and throughout the days on Sunday and Monday. We are way too far out to talk about snow totals at this point. We should have a better idea on this system as we head into Thursday and Friday. Stay tuned with the WYMT Weather Team for the latest information.

The models are a little bit more consistent and we are starting to get a better idea.
