We finish off the work week with a very sunny but cold day across the Ohio Valley. Morning lows started in the low to mid 20s and high temperatures struggled to make it into the upper 30s with winter like temperatures squarely in place across Kentucky.
WHAT TO EXPECT
Tonight, expect mostly clear skies and temperatures once again plummet with a light north winds and clear skies. Overnight lows will drop down to the lower 20s with the wind chill factor in the upper teens; average low for this time of year in Lexington is 40 degrees.
Saturday, expect mostly sunny skies; however, it will remain below average across the Ohio Valley with temperatures still struggling, highs will move to the upper 40s to low 50s; average high for this time of year in Lexington is 59 degrees.
After a weekend of fairly calm weather thing change up on Monday afternoon, expect mostly cloudy skies as a second cold front moves through the Ohio Valley. This will be the beginning of the second temperatures crash in a one week period.
As of now, I expect the front to start out as a cold rain then change over into a wintry mix with some snow; however, don’t get your hopes when it comes to snowfall and accumulation, if any does occur it will be isolated to the hills and mountains of Eastern Kentucky. The bigger story with this frontal boundary will be the cold temperatures with the coldest temperatures of the season so far.
