...Snow tapering off, but dropping into the 20s tonight...

Precipitation will wane this evening and overnight with clouds clearing. This will set up a cold night ahead with temperatures dropping into the 20s. Possibly some low to middle 20s where the greatest snow pack exists. UK Horticulture specialist point to plasticulture strawberry growers at the most risk as blooms are killed at 30 degrees F. With these forecast temperatures, plantings will need protected. More information on potential damage to winter wheat can be found here.

The bad news is the active pattern is not over as the next significant round arrives Friday night and into Saturday. This system could bring in upwards of 1 to 2 inches for much of Kentucky, in addition to some wintry weather mixed in. Stay tuned.
