Temps in 20s and low 30s right now across Kentuckiana with partly cloudy skies. As a cold front approaches this afternoon, winds will be breezy with gusts up to 30 mph. Temps topping out in the low to mid 50s - enjoy this single day break from the bitter cold! 

This evening we'll see a brief period of rain in the early evening hours (6pm-ish moving NW to SE) before a switch over to wintry mix/snowfall as cold air is ushered in behind the front. Less than half inch accumulations west of I-65 and the potential for slightly more east of I-65. Most of the snow will be east of Lexington.

We'll see an arctic front move in Tuesday and bring us the much-advertised cold air for the middle of the week. Brutally cold overnight Tuesday into Weds with temps in the single digits and feeling 10-15° colder. We'll struggle to make it to double digits during the day Wednesday with light flurries possible throughout the day. EVEN COLDER air Wednesday night with a low around 0° in the metro and colder to the north. Wind chills could be -10° to -20° overnight into Thursday morning. 

Our first day of February on Friday begins a  gradual warm up. Cloudy with a chance for a few flurries Friday. Noticeably warmer air in place for the Saturday with Sunday's highs getting close to 60 and a few rain showers developing to end the weekend. For the extended forecast... our first full week of February looks to be MUCH warmer than our final week of January.
