Clear skies overnight allowed for a bitter start this morning with most temperatures falling into the 20s and even a few bottoming out in the teens. Luckily, the wind is fairly weak with only a few spots displaying wind chills in the mid-teens this morning. Skies remain clear for the morning adding a better look to the day, but clouds will increase as we progress into this evening.
The early part of the week will consist of a small chance for rain and snow. These showers will be on the northern periphery of a shallow low passing well south of Kentucky. Late Monday into early Tuesday will be the best chance for rain & snow. Showers will be limited to the counties around the two southern parkways and a few select southeastern counties. Only trace amounts of rain and snow are expected to fall, and accumulation will be hard to find. A few light coatings on cool surfaces is all you can hope for, and once again, you must live in south or southeastern Kentucky to be a candidate. This system will bring a slight cool down for the early part of the week, mainly due to cloud coverage. We will again struggle to reach 40 degrees on Monday afternoon. The middle of the week promises more sunshine thanks to well-timed high pressure. We will be able to recover some in temperatures warming to the middle and upper 40s Wednesday and Thursday. Another weak system, this time passing through the Midwest, will deliver a few rain/snow showers and flurries moving into the weekend.
