QUIET, COLDER FINISH TO THE WEEK:
Northwest winds have taken over behind a cold front that moved through Thursday afternoon. Clouds will hang around with some patchy drizzle or a few flurries possible this morning. Watch for some icy spots on surfaces and roadways where temperatures have fallen to freezing. Clouds should give way to mostly sunny skies as the day wears on. It will be colder, however, with highs only in the upper 30s.
JANUARY ENDS QUIET, FEBRUARY BEGINS ACTIVE:
Saturday starts with sunshine before clouds increase ahead of an approaching system for Sunday. A mix of rain and wet snow is likely to break out across the area Saturday night, switching over to mainly a cold rain during the day Sunday. As colder air dives in Sunday night, rain is likely to change to light snow, with snow showers and flurries possible into Monday morning before ending. Some accumulation of snow is possible especially north of the Bowling Green areas. Highs Saturday will reach the mid 40s, topping out around 40° Sunday.
With any precipitation that falls Sunday night, temperatures will dip well below freezing. This means regardless of the amount of precipitation, there looks to be a high-impact on travel across the area Monday morning as temperatures will struggle to reach near 30°.
COLD NEXT WEEK:
A couple of shots of very cold air are in line to reach South-Central KY next week. The first one arrives Monday, with another one coming next Thursday. There will be chances for rain and snow showers midweek.
