LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - It is hard to believe that not even 24 hours ago we were still tracking temperatures in the 50s and 60s. You will not find numbers like that again today. What you will find... highs in the low to mid 30s with Wind Chill readings in the low 20s. This is our new reality for this week and into the weekend.
Thursday, will be the coldest day of the entire week. Some of you will not see highs reach the freezing mark. The morning hours will briefly feature Wind Chill numbers in the single digits. Again, think about the fact that many of us reached the mid 60s on Tuesday and now it will feel like the single digits Thursday morning. When you look at it from that angle, we are tracking a 50 degree "Feels Like" swing.
We will go through a couple of calm days on Thursday & Friday. Both will be much colder than what we have gotten used to. A system will track out of the southwestern skies and plow right towards Kentucky. Very little has changed with the back & forth that I have been writing about. You will see a period of snow as it arrives. A period of rain across southern Kentucky on Saturday afternoon/evening. Then it is back to all snow on Sunday morning. That is our latest trend suggesting that set-up for us. At the end of the day... the track always means everything! I know you guys here us say that all the time, but it is true.
We'll keep watching it very closely!
