Midnight Update: With clearing skies early tonight, temperatures have been falling quickly into the lower teens and single digits. Overnight low temperatures will fall to around 3 degrees, with wind chills around -10 degrees. Tuesday will feature partly to mostly cloudy skies with high temperatures only reaching 21 degrees. Wednesday will feature high temperatures around 33 degrees, with the chance for some snow showers across Eastern Kentucky, as a low pressure system develops along the Gulf Coast states, and moves up the Mid-Atlantic coast Wednesday into Thursday. The exact track this low pressure takes, will determine who sees snow, and how much snow on Wednesday. At this time, a dusting to 2" of snowfall east of I-75 will be average. Thursday will feature partly cloudy skies with a high of 38 degrees. Another chance for some light snow showers will return Friday into the weekend, with temperatures ranging from 35 degrees Friday to 40 degrees on Sunday. Warmer temperatures return for next week!
We will have frigid temperatures through midweek, before a warming trend returns this weekend into next week. A series of weather disturbances will approach the region this week, continuing to give us the chance for some snow and wintry precipitation.
TONIGHT: We’ll have clearing skies through this evening, with partly cloudy skies overnight. Overnight low temperatures will fall into the single digits, with a low of 3 degrees. Wind chills will be -5 to -10 degrees at times.
TUESDAY: Temperatures will stay frigid through the day Tuesday, with partly to mostly cloudy skies, and high temperatures around 21 degrees. Wind chills will be around 5 to 10 degrees during the day.
TUESDAY NIGHT: We’ll have partly cloudy skies and freezing cold temperatures, with an overnight low temperature of 11 degrees.
WEDNESDAY: We will have partly to mostly cloudy skies with high temperatures around 33 degrees. A developing low pressure over the Gulf Coast states will move up the East Coast of the United States, bringing heavy snowfall west of I-95. Eastern Kentucky may pick up some of that snow, with flurries to more than 2” of snowfall possible east of I-75 on Wednesday. If this low pressure system stays further south or east, and away from Kentucky, we may miss out on snowfall completely. Yet a track more to the north or west, could mean more snowfall for Kentucky. This will be something to closely monitor as we approach Wednesday and go into Thursday.
THURSDAY: The East Coast low pressure system will continue to move further away, with partly sunny skies and highs around 38 degrees.
FRIDAY/VALENTINES DAY: Mostly cloudy skies with the chance for a few snow showers will be possible for Friday, as a weather disturbance moves through the Great Lakes and Ohio Valley. Friday high temperatures will be around 35 degrees.
PRESIDENT’S DAY WEEKEND: A warming trend will begin this weekend and continue through next week. Saturday will feature partly to mostly cloudy skies with the chance for some snow or a wintry mix, with high temperatures around 36 degrees. Sunday will be a little milder, with a high of 40 degrees, yet the chance for a wintry mix will linger.
