Arctic air heading our way

Temperatures are starting to fall after a cold front passed through the area yesterday afternoon, and will continue to fall throughout the week. Clouds will begin to clear later today and overnight as high pressure moves in. A deep upper-level trough is responsible for very cold arctic air funneling into the region mid-week. The coldest temperatures will be felt Wednesday and Thursday with daytime highs in the low 20s. Please take any precautions necessary to prepare for single digit temperatures during the nighttime. The GFS Surface Temperature map for 6 am Thursday morning shows temperatures around 5 degrees across most of Kentucky.


According to the Climate Prediction Center, we have a slight probability of being cooler than average in the next 6-10 day forecast. Temperatures should become more normal later in the week as the high pressure makes its way out of the area and winds become more southerly.
