Round 2: More Snow, Record Low Temperatures
Another day, another batch of snow and widespread school closings.
After winter weather pummeled the region on Monday, more snow arrived overnight Wednesday and the National Weather Service has issued winter weather and wind chill advisories.
The forecast for the next several days also calls for chillingly cold temperatures, and we'll flirt with record lows below zero.
The NWS expects another two inches to land on top of this week's snow and the winter weather advisory is set to expire at noon. At 4 p.m., the wind chill advisory begins and runs through Friday afternoon. The wind chill factor over that span could make temperatures feel as low as minus-24.
Meanwhile, the actual low temperature will be below zero in the days ahead.
On Wednesday, we'll see a high of 16 and the low will drop to minus-6 with the wind chill pushing it to nearly minus-19.
Thursday's high will only reach 7 degrees with an overnight low of minus-9.
On Friday we hover around 17 before we climb back to 38 on Saturday.
Another chance of snow arrives on Sunday when we'll see a high near 29.
School districts closed on Wednesday include: Bellevue Independent, Boone County, Calvary Christian, Campbell County, Covington Independent, Dayton Independent, Erlanger-Elsmere, Kenton County, Ludlow Independent, Newport Independent, and Walton-Verona.
Holy Cross is on a 1-hour delay. Covington Latin is on a 90-minute delay. Northern Kentucky University and Gateway Community & Technical College will open at 10 a.m.
