Bitterly cold temps to end the year

Good Saturday to one and all. Northern Kentucky got in on a light snowfall last night, and we have a few more flakes to fly out there today. But, the big storm continues to be the bitterly cold temps blowing back into the bluegrass state.

Before we talk bitter, let’s talk about some flakes. A few areas of light snow and flurries will work across our skyline today, potentially bringing some coatings for some. With a frozen ground, it won’t take much to create a slick spot of two:

Hamburg Area from WKYT Studio

US 60 @ US 127
Frankfort

This will also be followed by another streak of light snow and flurries on Sunday. Some very light accumulations are possible from these small streaks.

Bitterly cold air will continue to press in here late Saturday into the last day of the year. Temps by New Year’s Morning will reach the single digits, with a zero or two showing up.

Monday night is likely to be the coldest, with the potential for widespread zero or below numbers. The GFS is slowly catching on to how cold it can get:

Wind chills may reach double digits below zero at times.

Speaking of the cold, it just won’t stop coming at us:

Light snow chances will try to return by later in the week into next weekend. That said, the cold is king of the weather world.

Have a great day and take care.
