will continue to funnel into the region overnight with the clouds slowly
breaking up a bit. A weak disturbance will brush the area early Tuesday which could squeeze out a few flurries across the Plateau, southeastern Kentucky and across
We might see a few flurries in the valley if we are lucky, but regardless,
none of it will cause any travel concerns across the region.
We should actually
see some sunshine return during the afternoon hours. We are going to need it as
highs will not get out of the 30s for anyone.
This sets the stage for a clear,
dry and very cold Christmas Eve night as lows dip down into the mid-upper
It will be sunny for Christmas Day and slightly warmer as highs creep
back closer to 40° in many areas.
It remains quiet and dry the rest of the week
with temperatures slowly moderating into the weekend. It appears as though
another Arctic front could push through the region late weekend/early next
week, but timing and strength is still a little murky.
Variably cloudy and chilly. Low: 27°.
TUESDAY (CHRISTMAS EVE): A few random flurries possible early, otherwise it will be
mostly sunny, breezy and cold. High: 34°.
TUESDAY NIGHT (CHRISTMAS EVE NIGHT): Mostly clear and very cold. Low: 19°.
