More winter weather for our big travel day

Good Wednesday and welcome to another wintry day. This might continue to cause some problems for Thanksgiving travelers as they head over the river and through the woods. Snow showers and squalls will combine with gusty winds to cause some problems.

The snow Tuesday night worked out OK across Lexington and northeast, and it was much lighter than I thought it would be across the south and southeast. Rain-to-snow systems are the toughest to forecast, as timing can throw a whole forecast out the window.

Arctic air surges in Wednesday on a strong northwesterly wind of 20 to 30 mph. This will create single-digit wind chills. Snow showers and squalls will kick it up a notch from time to time, reducing visibility dramatically as they roll through. They can also put down some quick-hitting accumulation.

The snow is expected to die out Wednesday evening and overnight as lows head deep into the teens for Thanksgiving morning. The day looks dry, with highs in the low 30s.
