Adam Burniston's Forecast | Snow and arctic air arrives this week

LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - As we round out the weekend, we track a system that will bring more snow accumulation as well as arctic air back into the region.

Starting out this Sunday morning, you will definitely want to warm those cars up early and bundle up before you head out to church or breakfast. Single digit temperatures are prominent this morning all across the commonwealth with some in southeast Kentucky in the lower teens. Fortunately, winds are calm right now not bringing in much of a wind chill. As we continue into the afternoon and evening skies will remain clear with some clouds popping in and highs will reach the mid-20s. By the overnight hours clouds will increase and some flurries may be seen across parts of our area.

As we head back to work and school on Monday some flurries will continue to be seen possibly impacting some morning commutes. Temperatures to start off the day will be in the teens again and only warm up into the upper 20s by the afternoon. Snow showers will then become more widespread throughout our area by the early evening hours and continue to our southeast by the overnight hours.

By Tuesday morning some in southeast Kentucky will likely still see some snow, but then behind the front comes in the arctic air. By the middle part of the week highs will only reach into the mid teens and overnight lows will be in the single digits. Once you add in a wind chill to those temperatures we will likely feel well below zero most mornings. The silver lining to this forecast comes by the end of the week and into next weekend. We will see temperatures warm back up into the mid-30s and then mid-40s with drier conditions.
