Frigid weather rules the week

Good Tuesday to one and all. A serious blast of arctic air has invaded the Bluegrass State and will hang around through the week. This is some of the coldest air we’ve had around here in the past few years. I’m also watching a possible winter storm later this week.

Temps this morning are in the upper single digits and the low teens across the commonwealth. The gusty winds are making it feel as if it’s zero to 10 below zero, and that’s in the danger category. Highs will hit the upper teens and lower 20s under a partly sunny sky.  Here’s your temp tracker:

A weak system will work in on Wednesday and might bring light snow and flurries into the state. Highs will be back in the 20s.

A developing winter storm will take aim at the state late Thursday into Friday. The GFS Ensemble mean has a threatening look:

This is likely to bring a significant winter weather event to parts of our region during this time. The track of the low will determine who gets snow or ice.

Regardless of what happens with the storm Friday, the first northwesterly snow event of the season looks likely Saturday.

The pattern might relax for a few days early next week, but look at what’s coming for the middle and end of next week:

This is a loaded pattern this week and through February. Make it a great day and take care.
