Good Saturday, everyone. Our winter storm is winding down to start the weekend, leaving the bluegrass encased in a blanket of snow and ice. Frigid air is now back, with a true arctic front ready to bring more snow and even colder air by later Monday and Tuesday.
Many roads across Kentucky are snow and ice covered to start the day, so please be careful out there. Winds have also been blowing the snow around, but those winds slowly diminish. Snow totals overachieved from what I thought in western Kentucky and underachieved in several places of central and eastern Kentucky. That much slower transition to snow certainly didn’t help our cause. Remember me saying “the slower, the lower”? Yeahhh.
Regardless, it was a VERY high impact winter storm for travelers across the region and one we tracked for a week here on KWC.
I will hook you up with your travel tracking tools here in a bit.
As I mentioned, frigid air is back today with temps generally in the low 20s for highs. Wind chills will be colder than that, as a flurries linger behind the departing shield of snow.
Lows by Sunday morning hit the single digits with afternoon highs in the low 20s.
Our MLK Holiday finds a strong arctic front blasting through here, likely bringing accumulating snows by evening and into Tuesday…
Gusty winds will also be noted with that setup, as bitterly cold temps settle back in. Highs on Tuesday may struggle into the 10-15 degree range after starting the day near zero for some…
Wednesday morning lows can also make a run at zero or below…
The good news is, that should be followed by a big rebound in temps by next weekend.
On that note, I need to actually sleep for once this week.:) Updated come later today, but I leave you with your early day tracking tools…
