Preparing for extreme cold around the area

Arctic air is invading the region and will bring the coldest temperatures we've had in about 3 years. Temperatures will quickly fall tonight with breezy winds and lows down to 8. With the wind chill it will feel like zero at times.

Heading into tomorrow afternoon we will see upper teens to lower 20s with mostly sunny skies and light west winds at 10 mph. Even that light breeze will bring the feel like temperature to about 10 during the warmest time of the day. Lows will dip to 10 Tuesday night with increasing clouds.

Wednesday expect a good chance of light snow as a clipper system moves across the Bluegrass. It looks to start late morning and continue through the afternoon with minor accumulations at best.

A more significant weather system arrives on late Thursday into Friday will be one to watch through the next several days. We could see precipitation beginning as rain or freezing rain and change to snow as another cold front passes. We'll keep you updated!
