Frigid Temps & Light Snow for Some for this MLK Day

An Arctic Ridge of High Pressure is influencing our weather on this Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Holiday.  Unseasonably cold air is being ushered into KY by way of a NNE Wind, and highs will hover around the 30° (average highs should be near 40° this time of year). There’s enough moisture to squeeze out some light snow this AM for some areas…so travel with caution on the roads this AM 

When you factor in the wind, it’ll only “feel like” it’s in the 20s this afternoon. So, dress in layers for any outdoor plans you have today.  Tonight, temps fall back into the teens, and Highs will remain unseasonably cold for Tuesday with highs in the mid-upper 30s.  Yet, it’ll be warmer courtesy of lots of sunshine as High Pressure sits on top of our Region. 

By Wednesday, a noticeable warm up will happen by the afternoon as Highs reach the Seasonable Low-Mid 40s courtesy of a southerly wind returning.  Thursday brings even warmer temps with 50s, but our next rain maker will be on our heels. 

Friday, an area of low pressure will impact our area.  Forecast models are disagreeing on how far north the Low will make it (which determins how warm it will get), but they agree that rain is likely. So, make sure to carry the rain gear for Friday.  It looks like precipitation may linger into Saturday as the system moves away from us and colder air returns.  A wintry mix or light snow looks possible by the start of the weekend… stay tuned for updates as we get closer.
