More snow, bitterly cold wind chills forecast for Kentucky

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — Weather forecasters say Kentuckians digging out from a winter storm could be in store for another round of snow, followed by a blast of Arctic air that will send wind chills plunging well below zero in coming days.

The National Weather Service says an additional 1 to 2 inches of snow could fall statewide starting Tuesday evening and continuing into Wednesday.

Wind chills could dip below zero Wednesday, followed by an even bigger drop by Thursday. Forecasters say wind chills in the minus-20 range are possible statewide Thursday. Temperatures are expected to rise into the 20s Friday, but another round of precipitation is possible.

Forecasters say it’s expected to start as a mix of sleet, freezing rain and snow on Friday, turning into potentially heavy rains during the weekend.
