be on tap across eastern Kentucky today through tomorrow. A few
snow flurries may fall this morning and again late tonight into
early Monday. Temperatures the next few days will be well below
normal, and even frigid at times, as an arctic air mass settles
over the region for a bit. Winds will be out of the west to
northwest today at around 10 kts, with gusts of around 20 kts
possible at times. Minimum humidity values should remain well
above critical fire danger thresholds today through Tuesday.
