... Freeze watch remains in effect from late tonight through
Saturday morning...
... Freeze watch remains in effect from Saturday evening through
Sunday morning...

A freeze watch remains in effect from late tonight through
Saturday morning. A freeze watch remains in effect from Saturday
evening through Sunday morning.

* Temperatures... falling to around the freezing mark in most

elevations at or above 2500 feet. Widespread sub-freezing
temperatures are expected on Saturday night... with lows bottoming
out in the mid to upper 20s.

* Timing... temperatures will drop to around the freezing mark near
dawn Saturday morning. Temperatures will fall below freezing after
midnight on Saturday night and remain below freezing until mid
morning Sunday morning.

* Impacts... some sensitive plants may get damaged or killed late

or above 2500 feet. Most crops and other sensitive vegetation will
likely get killed across all of eastern Kentucky late Saturday
night into Sunday morning... effectively ending the growing season.

Special Statement

Expires 5:00 PM EDT on October 31, 2014
Statement as of 4:53 am EDT on October 31, 2014

... First snow of the season expected for much of the area tonight
into Saturday...

A developing area of low pressure will send a strong cold front south
across eastern Kentucky late today into tonight. This low pressure
system and associated cold front will produce periods of
precipitation from today through Saturday. Temperatures are expected
to drop sharply this evening into the overnight hours. These falling
temperatures... will allow rain to mix with and gradually change to
snow... starting in the highest elevations along the Virginia border
early Friday evening. Snow levels will lower through the night with
valley locations mixing with and changing to snow between midnight
tonight and dawn Saturday morning. The snow will gradually wind down
through early Saturday afternoon.

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... however up to an inch of snow accumulation may occur on
ridgetops.

In addition... near freezing temperatures are expected tonight... with
sub-freezing temperatures expected Saturday and Sunday nights. A
hard freeze may occur in the I-75 corridor Saturday night... with a
hard freeze and frost expected area-wide Sunday night. Those with
sensitive plants will need to take action to protect them through the
weekend.
