Good Wednesday, everyone. The busiest travel day of the year is going to be a mess across the eastern part of the country. A big winter storm is rolling up the East Coast, with a lot of snow for millions.
Some of that snow will brush far eastern and southeastern Kentucky early Wednesday. The precipitation will start as rain before switching to snow. Some slushy accumulation will be possible, but a lot of the snow will melt.
The greatest chance for accumulating snow will be for counties that border Virginia. That’s where a winter weather advisory is in effect until noon Wednesday:
The rest of the area will see a mix of sun and clouds, with highs in the low 40s.
Another winter weather maker zips in from the northwest overnight and Thanksgiving morning. That will bring a mix of rain and snow that switches over to light snow as temps drop below freezing. Snow showers and flurries would then be possible on Thanksgiving day, with highs in the 30s.
The best area for some light accumulation would be along and south of Interstate 64. The wet ground might prevent much from sticking, but snowflakes flying on Thanksgiving isn’t something we normally see around here.
Black Friday shoppers will find temps near 20 early in the morning and near 40 during the afternoon. Skies will be partly sunny.
The rest of the weekend will find temps and rain chances on the increase.
Happy travels and take care.
