LEXINGTON, Ky (WKYT) - It won't last long, but we are going to see temperatures make a solid run at freezing today.
The bitterly cold temperatures will not be gone very long. We will begin seeing them again tonight and early tomorrow morning. Let's talk about the nice stuff of today! After dealing with some bitterly cold temperatures this morning, we are now set to make a run at 30 degrees. While we are still below freezing, it will feel a whole lot better... until the next Arctic front gets here tonight.
Some flakes of snow will blow through the area tonight. Those flakes are associated with another Arctic front. Any flake action we see will be light from the initial passing of of the front. Thursday morning will feature more single digit temps with more subzero wind chill numbers beginning to work into Kentucky. A stream of moisture from Lake Michigan will keep snow showers flying in Kentucky. You might even see some very light accumulations. It'll be more about the cold than the snow! I think some of the Thursday Wind Chill readings will be around 0 during the warmest part of the day.
Numbers could drop even colder early on Friday morning. You might see widespread subzero wind chill numbers. Many of those might even be in the -5 to -15 range! I think we have a better chance of seeing more folks seeing their wind chill numbers drop that much this time.
There's a lot to track between today and next week! That part of the forecast might include a messy early week system that has icing and snow concerns. ANYWAY... stay with us and we will keep you prepared!
