Good Friday, everyone. Kentucky continues to be the latest version of the frozen tundra and this looks to continue for a long while to come. While the bitter cold takes center stage early this morning, another round of accumulating snow is coming for Saturday.
Temps this morning will be below zero in many areas. Wind chill readings will be between -10 and -15 at times. Your temperature tracking tools will help you out:
Temps this afternoon will rise into the middle and upper teens as clouds increase. Those clouds are ahead of a strong system that dives in overnight into Saturday. Moderate to heavy snow will become likely and we are going to see some major travel troubles develop.
Here’s my latest snow forecast:
That’s a healthy snowfall that will be blown around by wind gusts of 35-40mph. This will create near blizzard conditions for a time on Saturday. Again… MAJOR travel issues will be likely across the entire area.
Temps tomorrow will start in the low teens and then rise toward 30 by midday. Those numbers will then drop 20 degrees in a few hours and we had back to 0 by Sunday morning.
The next arctic blast arrives Sunday night and is likely to contain another round of snow blowing through. Temps for Monday will start near 10 then drop to 0 during the afternoon and then below 0 during the evening.
Tuesday morning might be the coldest, so far. Readings of -10 or lower may be common across central and eastern Kentucky.
This is a nasty pattern!
Make it a great Friday and take care.
