Dangerous Wind Chills, Single Digit Temps, & Snow Back in Forecast

Northern Kentucky awoke Monday morning to temperatures in the single digits and a wind chill advisory from the National Weather Service.

At 9 a.m., it was 6 degrees outside on a day that is expected to reach a high of just 13.

Wind chill readings were minus-10 to minus-15 degrees when the sun came up on Monday. Frigid conditions will be dangerous to those venturing outside where exposure could cause frostbite. 

Winds on Monday are coming out of the west at 10 to 15 miles per hour with some gusts possibly reaching 25 MPH.

According to the National Weather Service, the wind will make it feel like it is between 10 and 24 degrees below zero at times. All skin should be covered.

Temperatures steadily improve throughout the week, after a Monday night low of 5.

Tuesday will be mostly sunny with a high of 21. By Wednesday, Northern Kentucky could see a high of 31, but that warm-up comes with the possibility of 1 to 3 inches of snowfall. Thursday's high is expected to reach 34, with a chance of snow. More snow is likely on Friday with a high near 31.

By Saturday, conditions will be partly sunny with a high near 34. It should be a fine night to join The River City News at RCN Live!.

On Sunday, we are back above 40, with partly sunny skies.
