LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - Here we are again... hanging out on the other side of the front! All of the other recent shots of cooler air didn’t really last long. This one might just hang around for a while.
We watched as temperatures dropped from the upper 50s and low 60s Tuesday morning to the low and mid 40s by the afternoon. The dropping nature of those temperatures will be continuing as each day passes. Today’s highs will end up with more of a seasonal chill. You will see highs range in the low to mid 40s out there. Just a few degrees below where our temperatures should be for this time of year.
Arctic cold will begin blasting into Kentucky by the end of the week. Daytime highs are already down by this point and with even colder air ushering into Kentucky... you will probably get stuck with some 20 degree highs! These are some pretty cold conditions that will setup around here.
A potential snow maker will drop in on Kentucky on Saturday. This is the same one that I have been referencing over the past couple of days. The is a strong indication that it will try to put down some light accumulations of snow. The timing of its arrival will be the biggest issue with cutting totals back. As of this writing, it looks like it will arrive around here during the daytime hours. Well... that’s when anything that fell would be the heaviest. There is still a chance we see something on the ground from it. Data is certainly trending that way!
We’ll keep watching it as it gets closer!
