Arctic air arrives

Good Monday, everyone. Dr. Martin Luther King Day will be a frigid one across the bluegrass state as arctic air settles in. This will set us up for some of the coldest temps since 2010 and could bring a few rounds of light snow.

The cold air continues to seep in from the northwest today. Temps today will hit the upper 20s to around 30 by early afternoon and then fall during the rest of the day. Winds will be gusty and will make it feel closer to 0 at times. A band of light snow or snow showers will be possible across parts of the state this afternoon and evening.

Here’s what you need to track today’s weather:

The bitterly cold air will then really kick in tonight and Tuesday. Take a look at the temp trend:

Winds will continue to be very gusty and this will take our wind chill values into negative territory. It will feel like 0 to -10 at time tonight and Tuesday. That’s getting into the danger range and you should limit your time outdoors.

A clipper system will work in on Wednesday and may bring another round of light snow and flurries to much of the region.

That will set the stage for a bigger storm system to come calling by late Thursday into Friday. That one could be very messy across our part of the world.

Make it a great Monday and take care.
