Snowfall totals ranged from just a dusting in the Bluegrass to 3" in parts of Knott and Pike Counties, but there was an impact, region-wide, as temperatures plunged through the lower 20s and into the teens as yesterday's snow fell.  The snow is quickly exiting eastern Kentucky this morning, but we will remain very cold with single digit wind-chills slowly giving way to wind chills in the teens this afternoon under partly sunny skies.  After a high in the mid 20s today, we'll fall back into the upper teens tonight before a warming trend takes hold of the area.  We'll be back near normal on Wednesday with highs around 41.  A very weak front may spark a brief snow flurry or two on Wednesday evening or night, mainly in northern and eastern Kentucky.  Thursday and Friday will be milder and dry, but rain showers will return on Saturday.  On the back end of that system, a few snow showers will be possible on Sunday.  Next Monday will be seasonable and dry with high pressure returning.
