Frozen Pipes ALERT

Good evening, everyone. Snow is finally tapering off across eastern and southeastern parts of the state, with the brutally cold temps now settling in. This will likely give us the coldest night of what has been a bitterly cold winter here in Kentucky.

Before we talk temps, let’s track the snow out of the bluegrass state…

Temperatures are already going below zero out there this evening, with the numbers overnight having the chance to get a little crazy on us. Lows can approach -10 if we keep the clear skies, with some pockets of even colder temps showing up.

The short range models are showing this well…

That is absolutely brutal, so please take all precautions. Wind chills will be even colder. This is dangerous stuff, folks.

A few flurries or snow showers will then develop on a northwesterly wind on Wednesday.

Temps slowly rebound later in the week. with an outside chance at 60 by Sunday. That’s ahead of a potent cold front, bringing rain our way…

Seasonally cold air comes in behind that early next week, with another system trying to swing in behind it…

The pattern should be trending milder over the next few weeks, but the European Model doesn’t really want a lot of that. It has an interesting look late next week…

When a winter gets going like this one, it can be hard to completely flip a switch to turn it off, even if the global signals are there.

Enjoy the evening and take care.

    Thanks Chris. We got enough here in Knoxville, probably a couple of inches tops, but good enough and we don’t need more. Hope everyone enjoyed their snow days!

      System failed Harlan….I came in over an inch but didn’t make 2 inches…sad. Enough said and I will keep away the mention of envy for literally almost every county of the state that had more snow than me!

    Some folks still don’t have water restored from the first cold snap three weeks ago.. I think I speak for a lot of people in southeast ky when I say I’m ready for this cold stretch to be over.

    Already showing -7 on my weather station in southern Fleming

  9. Mike says:

    -8 in Madison County at 10:15… Wonder why it is always one of lowest Mesonet readings in the state? I know the area where the equipment is located. It doesn’t seem that special or unusual…

  10. Todd says:

    About 5 in. here in Frankfort , you got to love an overachiever!
    Very rare for these parts

  11. Bob says:

    Showing 16 degrees on my thermometer here in my part of Knott county right now. At least we have snow on the ground to insulate the ground for water lines. If you go move the snow the ground will not be frozen. I’m ready for an extended January thaw!
