And just like that we are back to winter. Yesterday, we were sitting pretty in the low to mid 70s. Lexington set a new record high temperature. Then a strong cold front tracked through, and winter roared back in. With an Arctic air mass still in place temperatures will plunge into the single digits tonight with wind chills near 0° by morning. Saturday will be bright, but still very cold with highs just above the freezing mark.

Another multi-day, multi-round rain event kicks off Sunday. A system will lift in from the south. As the Arctic air vacates the area, there may be a brief period of snow at the onset. Otherwise there will be more rain to come through the middle of next week. More flooding concerns may arise after all of the rain this past week. Temperatures will also get mild with highs returning to the 40s and 50s.
