Getting ready for a hard freeze

By  | 

It's a major clash of the seasons with winter invading the heart of spring in the bluegrass state. Many areas picked up accumulating snow to start the day and flakes will continue to fly into the evening.

The big story of the night will be the temperatures. Readings will drop into the low to middle 20s for most of central and eastern Kentucky. This will set the stage for a hard freeze and that spells trouble for green thumbs. Be sure to protect all the tender plants and vegetation.

Sunny skies will return for Wednesday with afternoon highs in the 50s.

The 60s will return for Thursday and Friday as milder air begins to push back in. This may bring the threat for scattered storms our way for Friday.

Highs over Easter Weekend will be in the mid and upper 60s with some sunshine. We have a shot at 70 for Easter Sunday.
