  • Cold today with a few flurries near the Nebraska border

Temperatures barely rebound during the afternoon with highs in the 20s to lower 30s Wednesday. If you are towards southeastern Kentucky, most of your day has been under mostly cloudy skies with cold temperatures. A large area of high pressure from the north will sink southward over the next few days, keeping the chilly weather around.

Wind for our Thursday is gusting past 30 miles per hour, keeping the wind chill factor near zero or colder. As of now, I think a solid 30% chance of snow is about all we have for now. Temperatures, at times, will feel like single digits and teens. As a matter fact, we may have record low high temperatures for the date.

Clouds will be on the increase Friday, when the high temperature will be back up into the teens. Wind chill values will make many locations feel like the teens in many spots tomorrow. A scattered snow chance will continue through the day on Saturday with the best chances still remaining north. Then our next cold front arrives and takes us down even further with highs only in the 30s this weekend! Temperatures only manage to climb to the middle 20s. It will be a bit windy, as that northwest wind delivers the colder air. This combined with a light breeze out of the northwest is making it feel almost 10 to 15 degrees colder. Saturday looks to feature mostly cloudy skies with temperatures only in the upper 20s. The last time we had a stretch longer than a week of temperatures below 32 was back in February of 2014 when we had 9 days in a row (this one could be worse if our forecast verifies, with the magnitude of the cold).
