Wind Advisories continue across central and northern Kentucky today, and a Lake Wind Advisory continues across eastern and southeastern Kentucky.

Chilling, blustery breezes will continue to blow from the west and northwest through the afternoon, occasionally gusting to 45 and even near 50 mph.  After a midnight temperature of 60 degrees, we fell to 55 by 5 AM, and we continue to fall through the lower 40s and into the 30s.  Scattered, lighter rain showers are mixing with some sleet pellets and even a few snow showers.  Only a very light accumulation may occur in the grass, in eastern Kentucky.  We'll bottom out around 26 tonight and only recover to 38 degrees tomorrow.  The final flurries will exit to the east on Saturday.  High pressure will produce partly sunny skies along with a gradual warming trend on Sunday and Monday.  Showers and eventually thunderstorms will return on a very mild Tuesday and Wednesday, before chillier air follows another cold front on Thursday of next week.  A shower or two may linger on Thursday.
