JACKSON, Ky. (AP) -- Weather officials are urging residents to prepare for an arctic blast expected to affect most of Kentucky this week.
Temperatures were expected to start dropping Sunday night, and forecasters predicted some parts of the state could see wind chills down to 15 below over the next three days. They say most of the state should see lows near or slightly below zero till Thursday, when temperatures are expected to be in the low teens.
Meteorologist Chuck Greif with the National Weather Service in Jackson says residents should wrap exposed pipes and make sure pets and livestock are cared for.
Greif says there will be some precipitation in parts of the state, but little accumulation is expected.
