(TODAY THROUGH THURSDAY) ISSUED AT 300 AM EST WED FEB 10 2016 THE WEATHER CONCERNS IN THE SHORT TERM WILL BE THE SCATTERED SNOW SHOWERS THAT ARE EXPECTED TO PERSIST THROUGH OUT THE DAY TODAY AND THE FRIGIDLY COLD TEMPERATURES WE WILL BE EXPERIENCING ACROSS EASTERN KENTUCKY THE NEXT COUPLE OF DAYS. SCATTERED SNOW SHOWERS WILL CONTINUE TO MOVE ACROSS EASTERN KENTUCKY AS A LARGE AREA OF LOW PRESSURE ALOFT CONTINUES TO SPIN OVER THE EASTERN GREAT LAKES. THE SNOW SHOWERS WILL GRADUALLY TAPER OFF THROUGH THE DAY TODAY AS THE UPPER LOW FINALLY PULLS SLOWLY OFF TO OUR EAST AND HEADS INTO NEW ENGLAND. THE LAST OF THE SNOW SHOULD BE EXITING THE AREA BY AROUND 5Z TONIGHT. DUE TO THE SCATTERED NATURE OF THE SNOW SHOWERS...NO WIDESPREAD SNOWFALL IS EXPECTED TODAY. SNOW ACCUMULATIONS WILL BE LIGHT FOR THE MOST PART...WITH LIGHT ACCUMULATIONS POSSIBLE WITH THE MORE INTENSE SNOW SHOWERS...LIKELY ON THE ORDER OF ONE QUARTER TO ONE HALF OF AN INCH IN MOST INSTANCES. THE WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY WILL BE LEFT IN PLACE TO ACCOUNT FOR THE REMAINING SNOW SHOWERS AND THE SLICK ROAD CONDITIONS AND REDUCED VISIBILITIES THEY WILL CREATE FROM TIME TO TIME THROUGHOUT THE MORNING. DUE THE EXTENSIVE CLOUD COVER WE HAVE IN PLACE...AND CONTINUED COLD AIR ADVECTION IN THE LOWER LEVELS...TODAYS HIGH TEMPERATURES WILL LIKELY ONLY BE ABLE TO CLIMB INTO THE LOWER 20S AROUND THE AREA. THE COLD TEMPERATURES WILL CONTINUE OVERNIGHT...AS THE MERCURY IS EXPECTED TO DIP TO AROUND 10 DEGREES AROUND THE AREA. HIGHS ON THURSDAY SHOULD BE A BIT WARMER...AS CLOUD COVER BECOMES SCATTERED AND WE FINALLY GETS SOME SUNSHINE ACROSS THE REGION. HIGHS ON THURSDAY ARE FORECAST TO BE IN THE UPPER 20S FOR MOST LOCATIONS...WITH A FEW SPOTS SOUTH OF THE HAL ROGERS PARKWAY AND HIGHWAY 80 CORRIDOR PERHAPS MAXING OUT AROUND 30 DEGREES. .LONG TERM...(THURSDAY NIGHT THROUGH TUESDAY) ISSUED AT 300 AM EST WED FEB 10 2016 AN EXTENDED DISCUSSION WILL BE ISSUED SHORTLY.
