...Rain/Light Snow Ending Today, Wintery Mix Later Tomorrow & Thursday...

Radar is clear late this afternoon, but mostly cloudy skies remains. This feature has kept highs in the 30s today. Look for those temperatures to dip into the middle to upper 20s tonight and stay in the upper 30s to low 40s tomorrow. Bottom line, below normal temperatures are sticking around.

Precipitation chances increase Wednesday evening and carry over into the day on Thursday with a disturbance passing aloft. This system is expected to bring a wintry mix to much of the region, mainly Wednesday night. Freezing rain and sleet accumulations will be possible with this event and impact morning commutes for portions of Central Kentucky and the Bluegrass, while snow appears to be a better bet across Western Kentucky. Stay tuned for a morning update tomorrow!

Weather History...

With the help of a fresh three inch cover of snow, the temperature at Ely
NV dipped to 15 degrees below zero to establish an all-time record low for
the month of November. That record of -15 degrees was later equalled on the
19th of November in 1985. (The Weather Channel)
A storm produced 15 inches of snow at the Buffalo NY airport, and 30 inches
on the south shore of Lake Erie. (David Ludlum)
An early season cold wave set more than 200 records from the northwestern
U.S. to the east coast over a seven day period. For some places it proved
to be the coldest weather of the winter season. (Sandra and TI Richard
Sanders - 1987)
A small tornado (F1) touched down three miles south of Harrodsburg (Mercer 
County), KY. Six mobile homes and one car were damaged. Trees and power lines 
in the area were also blown down. (NWS Louisville)
