Attached is the latest weather briefing for the powerful winter storm forecast to impact Kentucky and southern Indiana Thursday into the Christmas holiday weekend. Minor snow accumulations appear likely Thursday night through Friday, and a rapid drop in temperature and high winds will likely worsen the impact of the any snow accumulations. Wind gusts late Thursday night through Friday could be in the 40-50 mph range. These winds along with the frigid temperatures will result in dangerous wind chills. The cold weather will last through Christmas.
