A very small taste of winter

Good Saturday to one and all. It’s a VERY cold weekend of weather across the bluegrass state, complete with a VERY small taste of actual winter weather. A couple of snowflakes will be noted for some early today, then again on Sunday.

Let’s get you caught up on how the weekend should unfold, then throw some tracking toys your way.

Cold air tried to catch the back edge of the rain shield early today, leading to a few snowflakes mixing in with the rain. The best chance for flakes will be from the Interstate 65 corridor to near Lexington then up toward the Cincy metro.

Can a small area get in on enough to briefly coat a rooftop? Maybe, but that would appear to be awfully localized if it happens.

As the precipitation moves eastward today, temps will rebound into the 40-45 degree range for many with a ray of sun.

Clouds filter back in on a stout northwesterly wind flow. That can spit out a snow flurry Saturday night into Sunday across central and, especially, eastern Kentucky.

If you’re heading out to Kroger Field this evening for the Cats and the Vols, we should be dry with temps falling into the 30s. Bundle up.

Sunday is another cold day for the eastern half of the state. The far east and southeast may not make it to 40 in a few spots. Wind chills will come into play this weekend and may hit the 20s at times.
