Skies have cleared across Kentucky with calm winds, allowing temperatures to quickly fall into the single digits.  We're expecting Wednesday morning low temperatures to be sub-zero for many locations.  Wednesday will feature mostly sunny skies with high temperatures around 19 degrees.  High temperatures get back above freezing for Thursday, with a high of 34 degrees.  Temperatures remain in the 30s and 40s Friday into the weekend, with a little wintry mix possible Friday, rain on Saturday, transitioning back to a wintry mix and light snow by early Sunday.
___________________________________________________________________________________________________ 
Frigid temperatures will continue overnight and through Wednesday, with temperatures getting “milder” as we approach the weekend. However, there will also be a chance of a rain-snow mix Friday into the weekend as well.

TONIGHT: Snow showers over Southeast Kentucky will taper off early tonight, with clearing skies across Kentucky, with overnight low temperatures around 0 degrees. Winds will be light, from the northwest to west around 5 mph, as high pressure builds over the region.

WEDNESDAY: Mostly sunny skies continue for Wednesday, yet you’ll need to bundle up, with high temperatures only reaching 19 degrees. Light winds will turn more southerly by late in the day, which will bring back milder temperatures for the end of the week.

WEDNESDAY NIGHT: Temperatures will fall to around 11 degrees, with mostly clear skies.

THURSDAY: High temperatures get above freezing Thursday afternoon, with partly sunny skies and a high of 34 degrees.

FRIDAY – WEEKEND: The chance for a wintry mix and rain will return on Friday, as a cold front settles into the region. Despite mostly cloudy skies and the chance for precipitation, high temperatures will be around 38 degrees Friday afternoon. Saturday will be milder, with a high of 46 degrees, and the chance for lingering rain showers during the day. Another cold front will move through Saturday night into Sunday, transitioning rain to a wintry mix and snow by early Sunday. At this time, snowfall accumulations look to be 1” or less.

NEXT WEEK: At the beginning of next week, temperatures look to remain in the upper 30s, with another round of rainfall and wintry mix by midweek next week.
