    MONDAY

    Temperatures starting off on the frigid side with morning lows in the teens and single digits. Afternoon highs climb back into the 40s but it is going to be a windy afternoon. At times, the 40s could feel more like the 30s once the wind chill is factored in.

    A cold front will push through late Monday evening into the overnight timeframe. That will drop temperatures for Tuesday and even bring in some precipitation chances

    TUESDAY

    Another day with morning temperatures below freezing. Cold weather will be sticking around throughout the day with rain chances showing up in the afternoon.

    As temperatures remain on the freezing side, the rain will switch to freezing rain at some point in the afternoon/evening time frame. The exact location and timing will all depend on where that freezing line is behind the cold front.

    Right now, it looks like locations north of I-40 have the highest chance of seeing the wintry precipitation with areas north of I-44 having an even higher chance of seeing any snow/ice accumulation.

    The winter precipitation accumulations will have some impact on travel. Watch for slick spots on elevated surfaces where temperatures are below freezing.

    South of I-40, temperatures look to stay ABOVE the freezing mark, so any precipitation will be rain. Most of the rain will clear late Tuesday but there could be some lingering showers through Wednesday sunrise timeframe.

    WEDNESDAY

    Temperatures start to warm back up on Wednesday with southern winds returning late. They will still be considered below average, but a decent amount of sunshine and those winds will help warm things back up.

    THURSDAY

    The warm-up continues for the morning and the afternoon. Southern winds pick back up and allow temperatures to continue the climb. Overall a nice day with afternoon highs above average and a decent amount of sunshine to enjoy.

    FRIDAY

    The warmest day of the week arrives on Friday for everyone to enjoy. Strong southern winds will bring warm air and moisture back into Green Country.

    Another cold front will push through late Friday into Saturday, dropping temperatures into the weekend. Be sure to enjoy Friday afternoon and evening before the front arrives.

    WEEKEND

    Cooler temperatures and rain chances will take over the weekend. It does not look like the weekend will be a complete washout with rain, but the cold weather will make you want to stay inside.

    Temperatures drop from the 60s on Friday into the 40s on Saturday and 30s on Sunday, be prepared for the cold weather changes.

    As for the rain chances moving in, things should stay above freezing on Saturday but by Sunday could see some places drop below freezing with the rain changing to freezing rain.
