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.
