Old man winter returns to the mountains, multiple chances for snow possible

HAZARD, Ky. (WYMT) - If you like winter weather, you're in luck. Every day in the next 7 features either wintry mix or snow chances.

Today and Tonight
Some spotty chances for wintry mix or snow will be around this morning, but we're not expecting any issues on the roads today. Temperatures will stay chilly, hovering in the mid to upper 30s under mainly cloudy skies.

The snow chances pick back up some this evening. Since the ground and roads have had a little time to get colder, we could see some slick spots and some light snow accumulations as we head into the late evening and early morning hours on Wednesday. Lows will drop into the upper 20s.

Extended Forecast
I think our snow chances will linger off and on through much of Wednesday before starting to taper off into the late afternoon hours. Highs will likely stay in the mid 30s before dropping into the mid 20s overnight. We could see some more travel headaches on Thursday morning.

From Thursday onward, it looks like we have the chance for several potential systems to affect us here in the mountains. Our next best shot of some snow comes late Thursday and early Friday.

We're still trying to pin down the potential weekend system, which is the talk of the town right now. We know there are a lot of models floating around out there showing some pretty crazy totals, but it is still way too early to make an accurate forecast. The data continues to evolve with every run.

Don't worry, we'll be keeping you posted as we get closer.
