A bitter cold weekend

Good Saturday, everyone. Bitterly cold temperatures continue to engulf the bluegrass state. This can drop our temperatures to near zero by Sunday morning, with wind chills even colder. Brr!

Let’s start with what’s going on out there today and roll forward.

We have a major winter storm shutting down areas just to our south and east today. This is skirting parts of southeastern Kentucky with accumulating snows this morning. Areas along the Virginia border can pick up a few inches:

Letcher County Cams:

Bitterly cold temperatures will be noted out there today for the entire region. Single digit lows start the day as wind chills check in below zero. Afternoon highs only hit the low and middle teens with a wind chill near zero.

Those wind chill numbers really drop this evening into Sunday morning:


Clouds increase Sunday into Monday as temps begin to slowly ease up some. This will be ahead of a system bringing showers in here by Tuesday, but some of that could begin as a mix early in the day.

From there, we set up a back and forth weather pattern that can feature some big time temperature swings. It’s also a pattern that can eventually get us in trouble with wintry weather late next week into the following week.

Have a great Saturday and take care.
