Rain and winds were expected to precede extreme cold and snow as Kentucky prepared for the strongest winter storm the state has seen in two decades.
Spaeth says the cold blast is expected to last through Monday, with wind chills in the -15 to -20 range for parts of the state.
The initial forecast for Kentucky called for more than 4 inches of snow, but that has been scaled back to 1-to-3 inches. Spaeth says the snow will move through quickly with cold air settling in behind it.
