LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - We’ve made it to the end of the week with the first weekend of February just about ready to begin. Of course, it’s Super Bowl Weekend and we have a couple of light snow makers targeting different parts of the state. This continues to to be part of this active winter pattern that grows much more wintry into next week.

A fast-moving streak of light snow is going to zip across the northern half of the state tonight. This looks very light and may only have a 40-50mile wide swath as it moves through.

Once that moves out, the rest of the daylight hours look good. Clouds will then quickly roll back in by evening as a couple of systems try their absolute best to come together, but their efforts may not be enough. One system moves across the Tennessee Valley then turns the corner up the east coast while another system is just to our northwest. This can bring a swath of light snow for much of the state, with the best chance for some accumulations across the south and southeast.

Additional snow makers and arctic cold temps are likely through next week.
