Aviation Weather Discussion for Eastern Kentucky

(For the 18Z TAFS through 18Z Sunday afternoon) ISSUED AT 245 PM EST SAT JAN 16 2021 Initial conditions varied greatly due to snow showers over the region, ranging from localized VLIFR to VFR. The snow showers are in the process of diminishing from west to east, which will leave a brief lull in activity late this afternoon. However, ceilings will still limit conditions to mostly MVFR. Another round of snow will move in from the west and northwest toward evening, with conditions expected to drop down to IFR for most places for a time tonight. Tonight's snow should ease up somewhat late tonight. A return to largely MVFR conditions with scattered lighter snow showers is forecast around 06Z, but conditions may be somewhat variable. That regime then lasts through the end of the period.
