KENTUCKY REMAINS WITH AT LEAST A 5 INCH BLANKET OF SNOW...BUT THE
HIGH ELEVATIONS ABOVE 2500 FEET NEAR THE VIRGINIA BORDER HAVE ONE
TO TWO FEET ON THE GROUND. SOME RIVERS AND CREEKS WERE ALSO JAMMED
WITH ICE OR HAD ICE FLOATING IN THEM. BY NOONTIME TEMPERATURES
HAD RISEN TO THE MID TEENS IN THE NORTH AND LOWER 20S IN THE
SOUTH. DURING THE AFTERNOON TEMPERATURES REACHED THE UPPER TEENS

THROUGH THIS WEEK. THERE WILL BE A SLIGHT CHANCE FOR SOME
PRECIPITATION THIS WEEK WITH THE BEST CHANCE COMING ON SATURDAY.

WHILE NORMAL HIGHS ARE IN THE UPPER 40S TO LOWER 50S.
