Early Weekend Update: Snow showers will continue to move through from northwest to southeast through Kentucky, with heavier snow bands during your morning hours. Snow will linger into your Saturday afternoon, yet taper off by the late afternoon and evening hours. Gusty winds will be around 30 to 35 mph, which will create blowing snow and reduce visibilites. Temperatures will top out around 27 degrees for your Saturday, and fall into the single digits by Sunday morning. With temperatures well-below the freezing mark Sunday morning, slick spots will continue to be a concern on the roads. However, Sunday afternoon will be a little milder with a high around 35 degrees. Another cold front moves through Sunday night into early Monday, bringing another chance for a light dusting for Monday morning, with cold, arctic air moving back in. Monday high temperatures will be around 18 degrees, with mostly cloudy skies. Tuesday will be our coldest day next week, with a high of only 8 degrees! A slight warming trend returns by the end of the week.
