Kentuckiana Braces for Unseasonably Cold Weekend
As the last few days of winter approach, Kentuckiana residents are gearing up for a chilly weekend.
Temperatures have already begun to drop below freezing, with Bardstown, E-Town, and Madison already experiencing temperatures in the upper 20s.
The cold is expected to stick around, with a northwesterly breeze making it feel even colder than it actually is.
Southern Indiana may see a couple of flurries, but they are not expected to have any impact.
However, residents are advised to be cautious if they are out and about early on Saturday morning.
Saturday will begin with clear skies, but they won’t last for long as lower hanging clouds and flurries move in by mid-morning.
The snowfall will be short-lived and localized to Southern Indiana.
Despite some peaks of sunshine in the afternoon, temperatures will remain in the mid to upper 30s across Kentuckiana.
By Saturday evening, it will get even colder with temperatures in the upper 20s and feels like temperatures in the lower teens by Sunday morning.
However, relief is on the way as high pressure is expected to build in, bringing warmer temperatures for the middle of next week.
Temperatures may even reach the 70s by Thursday and Friday.
For now, residents are advised to bundle up and stay warm as they brave the bitter cold of the last few days of winter.
