A very impressive winter storm is dominating the eastern half of the United State.  This storm system is massive and is responsible for Blizzard and Winter Storm Warnings from KS to MN and extending east to ME; High Wind Warnings and Advisories from OK to OH; Severe T-Storm/Tornado Watches/Warnings from AL to GA.

Here in Kentuckiana we have a High Wind Warning and Wind Advisory in effect Wednesday 4am-7pm.  We could see gust in the Metro between 40 to 50 mph.  With stronger gusts from Oldham to Green Co. and East.  Our best chance for the strongest gust will be from 8am to 2pm.  Very cold air races into the area behind the front Wednesday morning, so look for temperatures to fall into the low 30s by the afternoon.  Wrap around moisture arrives in the afternoon with a few flurries or snow showers and wind chills will be in the teens. Colder Thursday with highs near 30 and lows in the upper teens and low 20s.  Wind Chills Thursday in the single digits to teens.  YIKES, that's COLD!!!

Heads Up for next Tuesday...  Models are trying to develop a little snow maker for us.  If it pans out it could give us a couple of inches, but that is still a week away.  Stay tune...
