Arctic temps dominate the week ahead

Good Sunday, everyone. The first in a series of arctic cold front will move across the state today. This will set the stage for some of the coldest air in three years to invade the bluegrass state.

Today’s front will be moisture starved, but may produce a snow flurry or two. Winds are going to be very gusty and our temps will only make it into the 30s for highs.

A stronger system dives in from the northwest on Martin Luther King Day. This will bring a period of light snow and flurries to much of central and eastern Kentucky. That shows up nicely on the NAM:

Winds on Monday will gust to 30mph at times and our highs will only be in the 20s. It will feel closer to zero. Temps by Tuesday morning may hit the single digits with highs only in the upper teens and low 20s. The gusty winds will make it feel below zero at times.

Another storm system will take aim at the state by the end of the week. This has much more of a threatening look to it…


That will be followed up by another blast of arctic air for the weekend.

Have a great Sunday and take care.
