Monday's Snow-fall Wasn't the Only Wintry Record Broken This Week

Some parts of the region reported up to 5" of snow on Monday and record low temperatures on Tuesday/Jessica Duke

Apparently dumping a record-setting five inches of snow on the region Monday morning wasn't enough for this winter front that moved in late Sunday night.

Tuesday morning saw a record low temperature of nine degrees at CVG International Airport for this date, a record previously set in 1880 at 12 degrees.

WLWT is reporting that Duke Energy fought roughly 9,000 power outages as a result of Monday's snowfall, and a number of school districts across Northern Kentucky and the rest of the tri-state reported delays and closings.

Gusty and icy conditions are expected for Tuesday, according to the National Weather Service:

GUSTY WEST WINDS MAY CAUSE SNOW TO BLOW ACROSS NORTH-SOUTH
ROADWAYS...WHICH MAY RESULT IN SOME SLICK SPOTS. IN ADDITION...
ICY PATCHES ARE POSSIBLE FROM MELTED SNOW THAT REFREEZES.

COLD TEMPERATURES IN THE TEENS COMBINED WITH GUSTY WEST WINDS WILL RESULT IN WIND CHILLS IN THE SINGLE DIGITS THIS AFTERNOON.

DRESS WARMLY IF YOU PLAN ON BEING OUTSIDE...AND PLEASE CONTINUE
TO USE EXTRA CAUTION IF TRAVELING.
The NWS also predicts a 20-30% chance of snow for Wednesday, with a high of 38 degrees and a low of 21 degrees.
