End of week bringing colder, icier weather

Staff report

Western Kentucky expects lower than average temperatures during the next week or so, according to a Paducah National Weather Service forecaster.

Temperatures will be in the 30s on Friday, with a high above freezing and a low just below freezing Friday night, according to meteorologist David Blanchard.

There is a 50 percent chance of precipitation Friday and a 40 percent chance Friday night, Blanchard said, with a dusting of snow possible in Paducah and accumulations of less than 1 inch possible into southern Illinois and Indiana.

Blanchard said he expects Saturday to be the exception to the pattern of cold weather, with temperatures warming into the 50s. A 30 percent chance of rain is forecast, and the evening low temperature is predicted to be around 34.

On Sunday, highs are expected to be in the 30s or 40s, with a chance of rain, likely to change to a wintry mix later in the day. Blanchard said computer models differ on the type of precipitation. Colder air will come into the Paducah area Sunday night, with a low of 23 degrees.

He said there is a 60 percent or greater chance of freezing rain for Sunday night, with sleet possible later Sunday as well. Sunday night is expected to be breezy, and a noticeable wind chill is likely.

People can expect to feel a breeze Monday as well, with a north wind of about 15 mph, Blanchard said. The forecast high is near 35, and rain and snow are possible before dry weather returns Tuesday and Wednesday.
