... 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.
