...Wintry Weather This Weekend...
...Bitter Cold Temps Saturday night through Monday morning...
A potent cold front and upper level jet stream will combine to
produce a wild weekend of weather. Rain will come in early
Saturday morning...and increase in intensity during the day.
Expect rainfall amounts of 1 to 2 inches with southern Kentucky
likely seeing the higher amounts. This rainfall will cause
streams and creeks to rise along with rivers, especially the Green
River and Rough Rivers.
On Saturday evening....temperatures will plummet some 20 to 30
degrees as an arctic cold front plows through. There will be a
transition from rain to snow around sunset to evening hours and
then very strong northwesterly winds for the overnight hours.
Expect winds of 20 to 30 mph Saturday night dropping wind chills
to single digits Sunday morning. Wind Chills will be near 0 Monday
Snowfall accumulations of 1 to 3 inch snowfall are likely across
southern Indiana and areas of central Kentucky...mainly along and
north of I-64 Saturday night into early Sunday morning. Over the
rest of central Kentucky a quick dusting is possible.
Try to avoid going outdoors overnight Saturday through early
Sunday morning due to bitterly cold temperatures. There is a good
chance that any wet roads will become slick as the cold air blasts
into the region, with icy roads possible through Sunday morning.
Stay up to date of the latest forecasts as details are likely to
change leading up to the event.
