You may remember what the weather was like at this time last Monday. Well, listener Patty of Mt. Sterling posted a nice note on Facebook, “Thank you WEKU for all your great broadcasting everyday.
I am especially grateful for you all that came out in this blizzardy weather this morning (Monday) and are carrying on while the rest of us are in our cozy homes avoiding traffic and the elements. I rely on you more than I let you all know, and just want you to know you are appreciated.”
The National Weather Service has revised its forecast for the weekend and issued a winter storm watch for Sunday and Monday for the entire state of Kentucky. The storm will primarily produce freezing rain and sleet in Western and Central Kentucky, 4-6 inches of snow in Northern Kentucky and a wintry mix of sleet, freezing rain and snow in Eastern Kentucky.
With record cold temperatures and snow, especially for Kentucky, we're wondering what's going on. And we bet you are, too! On this week's Eastern Standard, we'll discuss this unusual winter weather and attempt to understand why it's going on, and what to expect as we get closer to spring.
