Special Statement:

Issued at: 4:45 am EDT on October 30, 2014, expires at: 5:00 PM EDT on October 30, 2014
  • ...First snow of the season expected along with a potential hard freeze... A developing area of low pressure will send a strong cold front south across eastern Kentucky late Friday into Friday night. This low pressure system and associated cold front will produce periods of precipitation from Friday into Saturday night. Temperatures are expected to drop sharply Friday evening into the overnight hours. These falling temperatures...will allow rain to mix with and change to snow gradually...starting in the highest elevations along the Virginia border early Friday evening. Snow levels will lower through the night with valley locations possibly mixing with and changing to snow towards dawn Saturday. In addition to the cold and snowy conditions...winds will be brisk behind the cold front with some wind gusts up to 25 mph Friday evening possible. At this time...most of the snow accumulation will be in areas above 1500 feet...where 1 to 4 inches of snow will be possible. The highest elevations above 3000 feet could see locally higher amounts. Most of the snow accumulations will reside on grassy and elevated surfaces due to warm ground temperatures. Little if any snow accumulation is expected across the Bluegrass region or in valley locations. In addition...freezing temperatures are expected Friday night...Saturday night...and Sunday night. A hard freeze may occur towards the I-75 corridor Saturday night...with a hard freeze and frost expected areawide Sunday night. Those with sensitive plants will need to take action to protect them through the weekend.
