Tonight, expect partly cloudy skies but don’t be surprised if you see a few flurries during the evening hours. Temperature will crash tonight with lows in the lower 20s but the wind chill factor will back it feel like it’s in the mid teens, average low for this time of year in Lexington is 41 degrees.

Friday, expect mostly sunny skies; however, it will remain cold across the Ohio Valley with temperatures struggling to make it into the upper 30s.

LOOKING AHEAD



A second cold front moves through Sunday night into Monday and is expected to send arctic air into the Bluegrass. It will be the coldest air of the season thus far with overnight lows reaching the mid teens.
