It’s another day in the tundra. This is the coldest morning of the season with temperatures hovering around 0°. A silver lining is that the wind is lighter. Wind chills won’t be as harsh throughout the day. It will remain very cold, though. We are tracking highs in the low to mid 20s.

A January thaw is on the way. Temperatures will climb above freezing tomorrow. There will be a big warm up over the weekend with highs near 50° Saturday before reaching the lower 60s on Monday. This warm up will get started as a warm front lifts through the Bluegrass later tonight. Along this boundary there will be the potential for some light wintry precipitation. Flurries and light snow will arrive after midnight, especially for areas along and north of I-64. As temperatures warm, even just slightly above freezing, we will see spotty rain and snow showers through Friday afternoon. The weekend will be dry, but cloudy. The next chance for precipitation will come in the form of just rain early next week.
