Temperatures continue to fall, snow chances this weekend

(WYMT) - Clouds have stuck around for most of the day with cooler temperatures. The winter feel has finally arrived and it looks like we could be dealing with the colder weather for a while.

Lows will drop down into the upper 20s tonight as clouds continue to clear out. We will be under partly cloudy skies with cold temperatures. I would not be surprised to see some valley locations drop down into the mid 20s.

Another round of cold air moves in before the weekend as the Arctic front passes through the mountains. This will be a dry frontal system, but this will set up the cold air for a long run. Temperatures will range in the mid-upper 30s for both Thursday and Friday. Partly cloudy skies and cold temperatures should be the main story for the end of the work week.

This Weekend
A clipper type system will take aim at Eastern Kentucky on Saturday. This low pressure with an associated cold front will bring a chance of snow, mainly on Saturday afternoon and into Sunday morning. It is still too early to predict how much snow will fall. If accumulation does occur, it looks to be light. Temperatures will be a big story we watch on Saturday as highs only reach the mid-upper 30s. Low temperatures Saturday night will drop down into the teens as the cold front moves across the mountains.

We will feel even colder air as we head into Sunday behind the actual front. The low-mid 30s look to be the high temperature on Sunday. Once again, a few flakes could fall Sunday morning before sunrise.

This weekend will be a system we continue to watch until the precipitation begins to fall. Please stay updated with the weather team online, on air and on social media.

Next Week
As we look ahead to next week, temperatures will increase into the low-mid 40s as we start Monday. Another clipper system looks possible as we head into Tuesday and Wednesday. This could bring another cold blast to the mountains. We will have to watch.
