A fast moving low pressure system will continue its eastward track through eastern Kentucky today. Rain will mix with and change to snow first over the highest elevations above 3000 feet. Then snow levels will gradually descend to the valleys through this morning...and begin spreading in from west to east across the area during the day Monday. Some slick spots are possible this morning across the higher terrain. Expect snow showers to continue through Monday night as colder air filters in from the northwest.

Total snow accumulations of around 1 inch are possible across mainly higher elevations above 2000 feet bordering Virginia through the day Monday. Otherwise...snow accumulations of less than a half an inch are possible for the remainder of eastern Kentucky with most places seeing no more than a dusting. Falling temperatures today into tonight...along with any areas that receive snow...will make for the potential of a few slick spots.

Stay tuned to NOAA Weather Radio and local media outlets for further details or updates.
