As we go through the day, our temperatures will climb into the mid to upper 30s. The majority are at the full bloom stage right now. "When you get above the Cumberland and Hal Rogers Parkways, the chance for snow becomes minimal, and 0" to a trace is about all you'll get; including the Bluegrass. The system track has trended southward over the last few days and continues to push best snow totals south of our coverage area.

We are going to be right on the edge of that system, so there is still some uncertainty.

Farther to the east in Batesville and Ash Flat, people will probably see more sleet than snow, he said.

The National Weather Service in Paducah has issued a Freeze Warning, which is in effect from 10 PM Friday to 8 AM CST Saturday.

Dalton said the most accumulation of snow on the ground will likely be in north-central Arkansas around Jasper in Newton County, Mountain View in Stone County and Mountain Home in Baxter County. Temperatures will fall into the low to mid-20s. Efforts should be taken to protect plants and trees from the harsh cold in the morning hours.

Tonight, there is a slight chance of rain and snow showers before 11 p.m., then a slight chance of flurries between 11 p.m. and 1 a.m. In fact, we'll keep these low temperatures through the middle of next week. Temperatures will top out in the mid-40s.

Another light snow maker moves in Monday night and early Tuesday.

TUESDAY: A wintry mix to snow is possible for Tuesday, with a cold high temperature of 37 degrees. Highs will be in the 30s. However, high pressure will build in from the west, and the sunshine will return as we head into the second half of the week.
