This Arctic Blast Is Dying
The snow is over for now…and maybe for a while.
Visible satellite imagery from this morning shows where the heaviest snow squalls moved across parts of Illinois, Indiana and Kentucky on Monday. While it wasn’t a lot of snow per se, the combination of strong winds and below freezing temperatures made for low visibility and some travel problems around the region last evening and early this morning.
But high pressure is taking over now with a sunny sky at midday. However, temperatures are still quite cold since we are on the east side of the high and winds continue (albeit not as gusty) from the northwest.
It will be another cold one tonight with lows dipping back down into the upper teens to around 20° over Southern Kentucky.
As the center of high pressure moves east of us Wednesday, we’ll start to feel a more southerly wind flow which – combined with ample sunshine will work to warm us into the mid 40s tomorrow and well into the 50s for Thursday and Friday.
There is a chance of rain both Saturday and Sunday followed by somewhat cooler temperatures…but as of right now, we’re not seeing any major Winter-like systems coming down the pike…yet!
