LEXINGTON, Ky. (12/4/13) — We were spoiled today as a warm front came through the Bluegrass and gave us one final day of fall weather.
However, starting tomorrow night, the weather will make a drastic change.
“This week is going to be a mess that’s for sure,” said Matt Dixon meteorologist from the University of Kentucky weather center. “Today was the warmest day in the foreseeable future.”
Tomorrow, an arctic cold front will be making its way into Kentucky. In addition, freezing precipitation will be coming a long with it.
“Kentucky is split into parts in this system,” said Dixon. “It will begin as rain and then form into a wintery mix. The biggest impact of freezing rain will be in central Kentucky, however here in Lexington we might see a light accumulation of ice but the biggest player will be snow.”
Quite a bit of precipitation is associated with this system, two to four inches of accumulation is expected across the state.
“Probably less than three inches in Lexington area,” said Dixon. “It looks like there could be four or more inches in northern sections of the state.”
