Light wintry precipitation will be possible late Friday into early Saturday, especially east of Interstate 65 and closer to the Lake Cumberland region and along the I 75 corridor.
Bitterly cold air will really take hold late Saturday night into Tuesday. Low temperatures in the single digits are possible with wind chills at times below zero Sunday and Monday mornings.
Low pressure tracking out of the southwest will spread moisture north into the region Monday…interacting with cold temperatures to bring chances for a wintry mix Monday into Tuesday. This storm bears watching for significant accumulating snows to the north and a wintry mix to the south.
