LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) -- First came the snow, and then came the frigid temperatures.

A blast of Arctic air moved into Kentucky Tuesday afternoon and Wednesday morning, dropping temperatures below freezing, where they are expected to stay for the next few days.

It's the second helping of winter weather in the state in the last three weeks.

According to the National Weather Service, the temperature in Louisville Wednesday morning was 6 degrees while Paducah reported a temperature of 16 and Jackson reported a temperature of zero.

Several school districts remained closed on Wednesday, though some were operating on a delayed schedule.

Catlettsburg city officials say crews have had multiple issues with water main breaks since the first cold snap.
