Arctic air on the way for the weekend

By  | 

Happy Valentine's Day! . Love wasn't the only thing in the air today as the sun made a return visit to the bluegrass state. Winds will continue to pick up into the evening and this is all in advance of an arctic cold front that slams in here on Friday.

That front will usher in a very wintry weekend complete with snow squalls, gusty winds and very cold temps.

That could set us up for a round of arctic light snow accumulation as we kick start the weekend. Winds will be very gusty and temps will crash late Friday afternoon and evening.

Snow showers and squalls will become common Saturday as a strong northwesterly wind continues. A couple of disturbances will dive in and give a little booster shot to the flakes.

Highs this weekend will run in the 20s with lows in the teens.
