Winter Weather Advisories and Travelers Advisories In Effect For Tonight
Midnight Update:
Snow showers are beginning to taper off across the region, yet flurries and blowing snow will continue into early Friday, creating slick roadways and surfaces.  Temperatures are in the teens right now, yet will fall into the single digits by early Friday morning.  Winds are still gusting up to 25 mph, giving us wind chills around zero degrees right now.  Friday morning low temperatures will be around 9 degrees, with mostly sunny skies through the day, and afternoon high temperatures only reaching 21 degrees.  Mostly clear skies continue for Friday night, with overnight low temperatures back in the mid-teens by daybreak Saturday.  Winds will turn out of the south on Saturday, helping temperatures to get back into the upper 30s, which will still make for a cold day.  Skies will generally be partly sunny for Saturday, with increasing clouds by late in the day.  Another weather disturbance will move across the region on Sunday, bringing another round of wintry precipitation to Kentucky.  We expect to start off as a cold rain or mix of rain and snow around midday Sunday, with a transition to snow by late Sunday through early Monday.  Arctic air moves into the region early next week, with only a high of 18 degrees on Monday, and sub-zero low temperatures by Tuesday morning.  Tuesday afternoon high temperatures will only reach 10 degrees!  Temperatures remain frigid through midweek, with a high of 24 degrees on Wednesday, and 33 degrees on Thursday.  There will be another chance for a wintry mix for Thursday.
