Mountain snow showers will be likely, with a few flakes or rain drops sneaking over the mountains along and west of I-81. Snow accumulations will be held to the Highlands.

A dusting of snow will be possible from Covington and Lexington and points north, while a couple of inches will be possible into ski country in West Virginia.

We’ll make a run for the 60s Monday, and if a cold front slows down a bit Tuesday, we could flirt with 70 degrees.
