Tracking snow and arctic cold

UPDATE

Good afternoon. Snow continues to fall across parts of central and eastern Kentucky. Totals range from an inch or two in the far south to near 6 for parts of central and eastern Kentucky. Gusty winds continue to blow the snow around and this will keep roads snow covered.

Temps will be the big story tonight as thermometers drop to near 0. Highs Wednesday will hit the teens as another light snow maker moves in Wednesday night.

Another snow maker is likely by Friday with another by Sunday. Bitterly cold temperatures will continue.

PREVIOUS UPDATE

Good Tuesday, everyone. We have a wicked round of winter rolling into the state today. This means snow and slick roads to go along with bitterly cold temps and gusty winds. This is all part of a nasty stretch of winter around here.

Here’s a breakdown:

– Light snow moves in early today and will carry us into the afternoon. We will see bands of heavier snow that will set up across the eastern half of the state.

– Accumulations today will range from 1″-4″ for many. Locally higher amounts will be possible across the eastern half of the state.

– This snow will have a high impact on travel throughout the day.

– Winds today will reach 30-35mph at times and this will blow come of the snow around.

– Temps will start in the low to mid 20sand then fall toward 10 degrees by early this evening.

– Wednesday morning will see temps in the low to middle single digits and only recover to the teens for highs.

– Additional rounds of light snow and bitterly cold temps will be with us this later the week into the weekend and early next week.
