Winter's Cold Looms Later this Week

So far, this winter hasn't behaved much like a typical winter. But all that is about to change later this week. Tuesday and Wednesday will remain mild with highs in the mid-40s to low 50s, according to the National Weather Service's Louisville office.

But all that changes on Thursday and Friday as cold air from Canada invades Kentucky. That will mean temperatures in the 30s and 20s later in the week but it also means we will likely see snow showers Thursday afternoon and evening, the NWS said. Snow accumulations will be slight -- around the half-inch mark.

Lows will be in the teens during the upcoming cold spell.
