Midnight Update: A few flurries and light, scattered snow showers are beginning to show up on radar for Northern Kentucky.  Most of the snow will develop by daybreak Tuesday, with snow becoming more moderate by late morning to early afternoon.  Snow will taper off by late Tuesday afternoon and evening.  Temperatures will fall through the day Tuesday, with morning temperatures around 25 degrees, falling closer to 15 degrees by late afternoon.  Winds will also pick up through the day, with wind gusts up to 30 mph and wind chills in the single digits Tuesday afternoon.  Cold temperatures will continue for the rest of the work week, with morning lows in the single digits, and afternoon highs in the upper teens to near 20 degrees.  Temperatures will remain chilly for the upcoming weekend, with highs back in the 30s.  A chance for some light snow will return Thursday, and again for the weekend.
