Good Saturday and welcome to November. Old man winter invaded the bluegrass state with the first flakes of the season on Halloween. Those flakes will continue early this morning, but the cold temps will hang around through the entire weekend.
For only the 4th time since the 1880’s, Lexington had snow falling on Halloween. That hasn’t happened around here since back in 1993. 1954 and 1930 were the only other years to feature spooky flakes.
As mentioned, those flakes continue out there this morning. This action will move away pretty quickly as temps struggle to get out of the 30s for highs. Winds will make it feel even colder than that.
Lows Sunday morning will be deep into the 20s for the entire region. Here’s the latest from the NAM:
Temps will continue to warm on Monday with mid and upper 50s likely. Sunny skies should help make for a nice day. That dry weather should carry us into the first half of Election Day. We will have to watch for a few late day showers from a system that moves our way by Wednesday:
Let’s finish tracking this first round:
Hamburg Area from WKYT Studio
I-75 @ Iron Works Pike Lexington
US 60 @ US 127 Frankfort
I-75 at MP 36 London
Have a great Saturday and take care.
