Snow showers continue through afternoon, cold day ahead

HAZARD, Ky. (WYMT) - Today is a WYMT Severe Weather Alert Day. A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect until 1 p.m. for much of the region.

Today and Tonight
Slick roads are definitely possible in spots this morning. Heavier bands of snow have been moving through the region overnight, laying down some light accumulations in some areas. Air temperatures will be at or just below freezing and road temperatures are cooling down, so watch out for black ice, especially on bridges, overpasses and in the higher elevations.

Those chances for scattered snow showers will continue off and on throughout the day. You may end up with nothing in your area, while your neighbor right down the road could have an inch or more. That's the scattered nature of these cells.

The snow will gradually taper off this afternoon, but highs will barely make it into the mid-30s, if they make it there. Skies will start to clear out overnight, dropping us into the low to mid-20s.

Extended Forecast
Our next shot at winter weather comes late Thursday night into Friday. If you like snow, this is not the system for you. Each run of the models continues to weaken it. As of now, after a day of sun and clouds on Thursday, I think our best chance for a few snow showers will be late Thursday night and into Friday morning.

I'm not going to say I don't expect any accumulation, but don't get your hopes up for much.

As for the weekend, the models are starting to line up to some degree, but it'll still be two or three more days before we feel confident enough to say much more than that. I know there is a lot of data floating around out there right now, but remember, a lot can change between now and then.

We'll definitely keep you posted.
