REGION. THIS MORNING A BAND OF SNOW EXTENDED FROM FLEMINGSBURG
SOUTHWEST TO NEAR CLAY CITY. EAST OF A LINE FROM SANDY HOOK TO
BARBOURVILLE...LIGHT RAIN WAS FALLING. AT MIDNIGHT...TEMPERATURES
ACROSS THE REGION WERE IN THE UPPER 30S AND LOW 40S AND QUICKLY
DROPPED INTO THE 20S. AT JACKSON THE TEMPERATURE DROPPED FROM 40
DEGREES AT 6 AM TO 30 DEGREES AT 8 AM. BY LATE MORNING MOST OF THE
RAIN HAD CHANGED OVER TO SNOW EXCEPT IN THE FAR EAST WHERE SOME LIGHT
RAIN WAS STILL MIXED WITH SNOW. A FEW MESONET STATIONS WERE STILL
SHOWING A FEW TEMPERATURES IN THE 30S FROM WHITESBURG TO
BARBOURVILLE.

SNOW ACCUMULATIONS WERE LIGHT WITH ONLY A FEW TENTHS OF AN INCH
BEING REPORTED FROM MOST LOCATIONS. RAINFALL TOTALS PRIOR TO THE

SYSTEM THROUGH OUT THE EVENING AND OVER NIGHT HOURS. NEARLY STEADY
EVENING TEMPERATURES WILL SLOWLY DROP TO AROUND 20 DEGREES BY TUESDAY
MORNING. FLURRIES CAN BE EXPECTED THIS EVENING AS WE REMAIN IN COLD
NORTHWEST FLOW. SNOW ACCUMULATIONS ARE NOT EXPECTED TO BE A PROBLEM

POSSIBLE AND DRIVE VERY SLOW.
