LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - Friday's winter storm not only brought a good coating of snow, but also frigid temperatures which will last in the forecast.

As you're getting up this morning you will be welcomed by a nice blanket of snow on the ground, but also frigid temperatures. We are sitting in the upper teens across the Bluegrass, but due to gusty winds it feels like we are in the single digits. These conditions will stay with us throughout the day as winds gusts could get up around 20mph at times keeping wind chill values in the single digits nearly all day long. A few flurries will be falling across the region today so make sure to drive carefully as road crews continue to work hard to clear the roads.
Heading into Sunday we continue to see single digit temperatures in the morning with some wind chills possibly below zero, but dry conditions will return. Throughout the afternoon we will see a mix of sun and clouds with winds on the light to moderate side. Highs by the afternoon will likely reach back into the mid to upper 20s and then cool back down into the teens as we head into the overnight hours.
As you head back to work and school, we will likely see our next snow chance come Monday into Tuesday. Along with some accumulation, this also brings back arctic air much like we saw two weeks ago. Highs by the middle and latter part of the weeks will only reach into the mid teens and overnight lows will be in the lower single digits.
