Another brutal blast of cold coming

Good Sunday, everyone. The bluegrass state is experiencing one of the worst stretches of winter weather on record and more is to come. I’m tracking another blast of bitterly cold air that may bring the coldest readings of the entire winter. Given how cold it’s been, that’s saying something.

After a frigid start to today, thermometers will warm into the 30s on a gusty westerly wind. Skies will be partly to mostly sunny and that will produce a heck of a snow glare for folks who are outdoors.

The arctic front arrives overnight into Monday morning and is likely to have a band of light snow with it:

NAMThat same band of light snow also shows up on the Canadian Model:

Light accumulations with that can cause additional travel troubles. Winds will gust to 30mph at times as thermometers fall all day long. We will be in the teens by the afternoon and in the single digits by early evening. This leads us to what I think is the coldest night of the entire winter. Readings by Tuesday morning can approach -10 in much of the state.

The same run of the Canadian is going crazy with the lows…

We will have to wait and see exactly how cold we can get, but another well below zero morning is ahead of us. Highs Tuesday should stay in the single digits. We may go below zero again on Wednesday morning.

The pattern does show signs of moderating by the end of next week. Of course, when it’s this cold, there is only one way to go… up.

Have a great day and take care.
