Special Statement

Statement as of 9:42 PM EDT on October 31, 2014

Expires 9:45 AM EDT on November 01, 2014


... Shot of winter weather tonight into Saturday morning...
... Freeze watch in effect from Saturday evening through Sunday
morning...

A strong cold front has ushered colder air into the commonwealth. An
upper level low will bring wintry precipitation through Saturday.
Temperatures will continue to drop overnight... and rain or a mix of
rain and snow will gradually transition to all snow. The changeover
to all snow will occur first at elevations of 1000 feet and above...
and the latest in the deeper valleys. The snow will gradually wind
down and end a touch of drizzle or light rain by late Saturday
afternoon.

Most of the snow accumulations will reside on grassy and elevated
surfaces due to warm ground temperatures. Accumulations of an inch or
less are anticipated by dawn across the Bluegrass region... and
portions of northeast and south central Kentucky... but due to the
warm ground temperatures... expect most of this snow to melt fairly
quickly on Saturday morning.

In addition... sub-freezing temperatures are expected Saturday and
Sunday night. A freeze may occur in the I-75 corridor Saturday
night... with a hard freeze and widespread frost expected area-wide
Sunday night. Those with sensitive plants will need to take action to
protect them through the weekend.
