Warmer temperatures, freezing rain could cause flooding this weekend

Weekend weather: More snow and rain followed by sun

SATURDAY NIGHT: Mostly cloudy turning partly cloudy with snow tapering to snow showers.

The cold is expected to hang around through Tuesday and Wednesday, when a clipper system moves eastward into the region.

As residents work to clean up after Thursday's snowfall, the forecast has a chance for more of the white stuff tonight.

Skies should initially be cloudy, then become mostly sunny, with the high temperature expected to be around 36 degrees.

As of press time in the extended forecast, Monday night showed "rain, snow, and freezing rain likely" with a low of 24 degrees Fahrenheit.

She continued, "She's lied so much she doesn't know what isn't a lie anymore". "I didn't abuse any of my children". In her words: "No bodyguard, are you kidding me? That was why I chose to do this movie".

Rain will turn to a mix of freezing rain, sleet and eventually light snow this evening and continue until early morning Friday. The good news is that the precipitation will be coming to an end by midday Saturday so there shouldn't be much chance for any significant ice or snow accumulation. New rainfall amounts between 1 and 2 inches possible. A strong cold front will push temperatures to below freezing. A second wave of low pressure could bring another inch of rain, for a total of one to three inches, with some places reaching four.

Forecasters are concerned that the cold conditions will generate a flash freeze and have issued a winter weather advisory for the entire state.

Tuesday: A 20 percent chance of rain.

Snowfall will stop in southern IL between 6 and 9 A.M, but will continue until noon for west Kentucky. The snow and wind combined are expected to create low visibility and hazardous driving conditions. Temperatures will warm up into the 40s for most communities.

Lexington Mayor Jim Gray said Friday that the city has been preparing for the weather and had trucks and street crews ready. This includes rain plus the water equivalent of snow and ice. "Monitor the trends of the latest forecasts as the event draws closer".
