Forecast: Colder air likely to follow snow that closed Fayette, other schools

Herald-Leader Staff ReportFebruary 10, 2014 

The weekend rounds of light snow, which closed Fayette County and other school districts Monday, are going to be followed by lower temperatures, meteorologist Chris Bailey said.

The short-term forecast features colder air pouring into the state Monday, Bailey said. Highs will be only in the low and mid-20s in the afternoon, with a chance of some light snow. There will be greater chances of snow across the south and east.

Temps Monday night will really bottom out. In areas with clearing skies, the low might hit zero or below. If the clouds hang around, lows will be closer to 10.

Bailey said he'll keep an eye on on more snow threats.
