Frigid Temps, Snow Likely for January's First Week
Murray, KY – Forecasters expect the frigid weather to continue through the week in both Kentucky and Tennessee. The National Weather Service says a snowstorm is likely Wednesday night and Thursday, affecting most of Kentucky and Tennessee, with anywhere from 1 to 3 inches accumulation. Forecasters blame the cold on an Arctic high pressure system that's keeping temperatures 15 to 20 degrees below normal. Highs each day this week are expected to stay in the 20s to near 30, with zero, single-digit or teen wind-chill temperatures. Nightime wind-chills could drop even lower, especially later in the week.
