Chilly Today, but It Will Get Even Colder Soon

We are now behind a cold front, and colder air is settling in.  The warmest part of the day will be this morning, but temps gradually fall through mid-morning before warming back into the low 40s this afternoon (seasonable).  Tonight, you’ll really feel the chill as actual temps fall into the 20s with wind chill values in the teens. So… get ready to crank the heat. 

Friday, expect increasing clouds with seasonable temps. Yet, late Friday night could bring a brief window of wintry weather to parts of Northern KY.  Expect little to no accumulations as a warm front moves north…switching any precip over to all rain for Saturday.  Rainfall estimates could be around 1″ for areas near the river with .25″ – .5″ for parts of Southern KY.  Regardless, everyone will have to endure the WIND for the start of the weekend.  Winds will be sustained anywhere from 25-35mph… with gusts over 40mph.  So, secure any loose items outside of your property sometime between Today and Friday. 

A cold front crosses Saturday afternoon/evening, and temps drop like a rock behind it.  The door to Arctic Air will open up, and afternoon Highs won’t make it out of the 20s on Sunday or Monday…with temps in the teens Monday AM and Tuesday AM…(this is not even factoring in the Wind Chill) BURRR!   So, dress warmly for any outdoor activities on Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day!

Expect a slow warm up to seasonable low-mid 40s by the middle of next week.
