More Rain On The Way, Snow Possible Later This Week

A cold front will move across the Commonwealth tonight.  Expect rain showers to wind down behind the front as we approach the Wednesday morning drive.  A few sprinkles or isolated showers will be possible early Wednesday morning, but most areas will be dry by mid morning.  Temperatures will be above freezing around daybreak for most of the Commonwealth, with the exception of Covington and surrounding areas.  No problems are expected on the roads. 

A good portion of the day will be dry with rain moving back in during the afternoon and evening.  We’ll see some breaks from the rain on Thursday, but more rain is likely.  Rainfall totals through the end of the week will range from 1 to 2 inches across the northern half of state with 2 to 4 inches possible across the southern half of the state. 

The air will be cool enough to support a few light snow showers late Thursday night into Friday.  The chance of seeing accumulating snowfall looks pretty slim for most areas on Friday, but we’ll see another chance on Saturday as a disturbance moves across the area.  We are still a ways out, but as of now it looks like the best chance of accumulating snowfall would be east of I-65.  We’ll be keeping a close eye on that system in the days ahead.
