LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - Today will be the last day for a little while with highs in the 20s after arctic air dominates our forecast.
We are starting out this Saturday morning with temperatures in the lower 20s and light winds not bringing in too much of a wind chill. Cloudy skies are blanketed across the Commonwealth this morning as well, which will continue throughout the day. Some flurries are possible for some areas, however I believe eastern portions of Kentucky have the best chances to see anything. Highs by the afternoon and evening will be reaching only into the upper 20s, but this will be the warmest day we will see in awhile as temperatures take a dive by Saturday night.
As you wake up for church/breakfast on Sunday morning it will feel frigid outside. Temperatures in the morning will be in the lower teens with wind chills well into the single digits. Some isolated flurries are possible again throughout the day, however chances remain fairly low. Skies will be a mix of sun and clouds throughout the day as well, but even the sunny skies won't help our highs. By the afternoon/evening, temperatures will struggle to reach into the upper teens with winds still making it feel significantly cooler.
To ring in the New Year on Monday, temperatures will still remain frigid with arctic air settled in. Highs throughout most of next week will be renaming in the teens with overnight lows in the single digits. Add on any amount of wind chill on top of that and it will feel like the single digits and well below zero most of the week. We will continue to see hit and miss snow chances throughout the week as well.
