Record Cold Temperatures Expected Next Week
By West Kentucky Star Staff
WESTERN KENTUCKY - The National Weather Service in Paducah reports this morning there is high confidence that we will see near record or record cold temperatures next Tuesday and possibly Wednesday with the next Arctic cold front that moves into the area late Sunday night. 

Temperatures will likely remain at or below freezing from after sunset on Monday through mid-morning on Wednesday, with wind chills in the single digits on Tuesday. There is also the potential for a light wintry mix Monday afternoon and evening over the Quad State region. 

There has been a consistent signal for a small snowfall potential, generally less than one half inch over parts of the region, but with warm ground and road surfaces, little impact is anticipated at this time.

The main concern for early next week will be for preparing school children for sub-freezing temperatures and single digit wind chills, impacts for those planning outdoor activities for the Veteran's Day observance, and for workers and home owners that may be impacted by an extended period of sub-freezing temperatures.
