...SNOW EXPECTED MONDAY INTO EARLY TUESDAY...
...RECORD COLD WEATHER FOR EARLY AND MIDDLE PARTS OF NEXT WEEK...

A STORM SYSTEM TRACKING ACROSS THE SOUTHEASTERN UNITED STATES IS
EXPECTED TO INITIALLY BRING RAIN TO THE AREA LATE SUNDAY AND SUNDAY
NIGHT. HOWEVER...COLD AIR WILL WORK INTO THE REGION FROM NORTHWEST TO
SOUTHEAST LATE SUNDAY NIGHT THROUGH MONDAY...CHANGING THE RAIN OVER
TO SNOW. IT APPEARS THAT MUCH OF THE AREA WILL STAY MAINLY RAIN
THROUGH DAYBREAK MONDAY. THE BEST CHANCES FOR LIGHT SNOWFALL
ACCUMULATIONS WILL BE IN THE BLUEGRASS REGION...AND ON RIDGETOPS IN
SOUTHEAST KENTUCKY...MAINLY ABOVE 2000 FEET. ELSEWHERE...LITTLE OR NO
SNOW ACCUMULATION IS EXPECTED.

AS THE EARLY WEEK LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM DEPARTS...THE COLDEST AIR MASS
SO FAR THIS FALL...AND MORE TYPICAL OF JANUARY...WILL INVADE THE
REGION. TEMPERATURES WILL HOLD STEADY OR FALL THROUGH THE DAY ON
MONDAY. THEN...LOW TEMPERATURES ON MONDAY NIGHT ARE EXPECTED TO BE IN
THE TEENS...WITH TEMPERATURES STRUGGLING TO REACH THE MID 20S IN MOST
LOCATIONS ON TUESDAY. TUESDAY NIGHT WILL BE SLIGHTLY COLDER AS THE
HIGH PRESSURE MOVES OVERHEAD...WITH TEMPERATURES EXPECTED TO BOTTOM
OUT AROUND 10 DEGREES IN THE NORMALLY COLDER VALLEY LOCATIONS...AND
IN THE TEENS ELSEWHERE. TEMPERATURES ARE FORECAST TO BE AT OR BELOW
RECORD VALUES DURING THIS TIME...OR ROUGHLY 20 TO 30 DEGREES BELOW
NORMAL.
