Midnight Update:  Temperatures are quickly falling below freezing across Central Kentucky, with snow showers, while Eastern Kentucky is just now seeing the changeover to snow take place.  Blowing snow will continue into early Monday morning, reducing visibility, and with quickly dropping temperatures, anything wet or frozen will freeze on any surfaces.  Temperatures will fall into the single digits by daybreak Monday, and stay near or below zero Monday through Tuesday morning.  Winds will continue to be breezy, with gusts up to 30 mph.  This will give us dangerous wind chills from -20 to -30 degrees Monday through Tuesday.  Tuesday will only feature a high of 10 degrees.  Temperatures get back into the 30s on Wednesday and Thursday for highs, 40s by Friday, and upper 40s to near 50 degrees by next weekend.
An arctic cold front will move through the region early tonight, with a transition from rain to a little snow as cold air overtakes the rain.  Snowfall accumulations look to be light, from a dusting to 2" on average, yet anything that falls or is still wet, will freeze overnight, as temperatures fall into the single digits by daybreak Monday.  The main story is just how cold it will be, with gusty northwesterly winds, giving us wind chills around -25 degrees at times on Monday.  Temperatures will be around 3 degrees by Monday morning, with temperatures remaining in the lower single digits through the day, and falling below zero degrees by Monday night.  Breezy winds will continue to give us dangerous wind chills Monday night through Tuesday.  Frostbite can occur within 30 minutes of wind chills colder than -18 degrees.  Our coldest temperatures will be Monday night into Tuesday morning, with temperatures around -6 degrees.  Tuesday will feature mostly sunny skies with a high of only 10 degrees.  Somewhat milder air will return through the week, with highs around 31 degrees on Wednesday with partly sunny skies.  Another chance for a wintry mix will return on Thursday, with a high of 36 degrees.  Lower 40s return for Friday, with partly sunny skies.  Rain showers return next weekend, with high temperatures back in the upper 40s to near 50 degrees.
