(This evening through Sunday night) Issued at 353 PM EST SAT JAN 13 2018 Cyclonic flow continues across east Kentucky this afternoon in the wake of last nights departing storm system. With streamlines connected back to the great lakes, The added moisture coupled with upslope flow has lead to snow showers and flurries through the day. Clouds will continue to hang on well into this evening with the threat of flurries continuing. Should not be any accumulations as the activity has continued its weakening trend through the day. Models continue to show clouds slowly eroding from the northwest and west overnight, so will go this route with the forecast. Most of the area should be back under clear skies by dawn Sunday as a surface builds east across Ohio. With the expected clearing, did go with some colder readings (single digits) in the valleys tonight. Even went a few degrees colder just based on the fact that some of the area does have some snow cover. It looks like 3 or 4 degrees should be the bottom end on temperatures tonight. Sunshine will help boost temperatures into the 20s tomorrow with high clouds slowly on the increase through the day ahead of clipper system that will be moving into the western great lakes region. Clouds will continue to thicken up and lower Sunday night, but temperatures in the eastern valleys may still dip into the single digits early in the night before the clouds lower. We should see temperatures start to increase towards dawn Monday with clouds and winds increasing ahead of the approaching clipper system. .LONG TERM...(Monday through Saturday) Issued at 353 PM EST SAT JAN 13 2018 Long term discussion to follow shortly.
