Few lingering flakes/sprinkles early but most are drying out. Cold and cloudy for Thursday afternoon. 

  • This Afternoon: Mostly cloudy and cold. (20%) chance lingering flurry/sprinkle. High: 37°.

  • Friday: Mostly cloudy with a few breaks of sun late. Staying chilly. High: 33°. 

We saw a light wintry mix in spots this morning across the area but as this front continues to push East, most locations are drying out. A few isolated sprinkles or flakes may linger early this afternoon over the higher elevations. It stays cloudy and cold with breezy winds out of the North at times.

Overnight variably cloudy skies are in store with cold lows in the teens for the higher elevations and low 20s for the Valley. Be sure to grab a big cup of coffee and the heavy coat tomorrow morning before heading out the door. Mostly cloudy skies continue tomorrow with some breaks of sun late. Friday’s high is only 33 degrees. 

As skies clear some Friday night, temperature readings will tumble into the mid to upper teens area-wide. It will be especially cold Saturday morning but mainly sunny skies should help to warm us to near 40 degrees. 

This weekend looks dry, but still cool. We will see highs in the low 40s Sunday with partly cloudy skies. There is a slim chance for a few stray snow flurries over the mountains and parts of SE Kentucky/SW Virginia late Sunday night into Monday. 

Monday is our warmest day on the 7-Day forecast with a near average high of 48 degrees. By Tuesday models are still in disagreement about the placement of our next system. For now there is a 30% chance for a rain/snow mix Tuesday with colder air expected behind this system. A stray snow flurry or two may linger early Wednesday with cold highs in the mid to upper 30s for the end of the week.
