We are set-up for a frigid Tuesday across Kentuckiana as our latest blast of arctic air has taken over the region. After a 2”-4” snow (with isolated spots even higher) across the area on late Monday, a persistent, slow moving band of occasional moderate snow will continue to shift south of the river into our Southern Kentucky counties today. Additional accumulations of 1"- 2" will be possible south of Louisville and with more low-level moisture streaming in from the northwest, a few snow showers and flurries will be possible through tonight area wide.
Another part of this will be the frigid temperatures as readings dropped into the upper single digits and low teens during the morning hours. Expect a very cold afternoon with highs in the mid-teens and early morning lows dipping into the single digits Wednesday as the flurries hang around early then diminish during the morning.
The good news is that there is warmer weather on the way for the late week and especially into the upcoming weekend. Temperatures will recover back above freezing Thursday with seasonable highs in the mid-40s Friday. The beginning of the weekend looks mainly dry with some clouds as highs surge into the low 50s ahead of an approaching storm system. As winds pick up Sunday, low 60s are possible with showers and even a few storms possible late day with the rain chances continuing into Monday as we begin to cool off again. Have a great Tuesday, stay warm and be careful out there!
TODAY: Very cold with light snow in our Kentucky counties. High: 16. Wind: NW 10-15 mph.
TONIGHT: More clouds, a few snow showers. Low: 6. Wind: W 5-10 mph.
WEDNESDAY: A few morning flurries then partly cloudy. High: 23. Wind: W 5-10 mph
