Arctic cold and snow showers blowing in

Good Friday to one and all. After a nice Valentine’s Day… our weather is taking a turn toward the cold and snowy side as we hit the weekend. An arctic front will dive into the state today and set the stage for rounds of snow showers, gusty winds and frigid temps.

Temps ahead of this front may spike toward 40 early today as winds really crank up. Readings will crash behind the boundary as snow showers and squalls develop as the day wears on. Some of these can be locally heavy at times and this may reduce visibilities for travelers into this evening.

Here’s all you need to track the front:

Current Temperatures

Rounds of snow showers and squalls will continue overnight into Saturday. Light accumulations are a good bet during this time. Readings late tonight will drop into the upper teens and lower 20s with highs Saturday staying in the upper 20s. Gusty winds will make it feel even colder.

Sunday will be another very cold and windy day as snow showers and flurries slowly decrease.

The weather pattern next week is a busy one with two storms that will impact Kentucky. The first arrives Monday night and Tuesday with rain and snow a good bet. Cold air will surge in behind this windy storm on Tuesday:

The next storm will blow into our region by the end of next week. That one may be the stronger of the two.

Make it a fantastic Friday and take care.
