Strong cold front sends temperatures plunging — FIRST ALERT FORECAST

According to the National Weather Service in Louisville, winds will pick up from the south and southwest this afternoon, as a strong cold front approaches the Ohio Valley. It will be a bitterly cold day with fresh, gusty north to northwest breezes and afternoon temperatures of just 3 to 6 degrees.

If nothing else, much-needed rainfall is expected Tuesday night and early Wednesday with the passage of the cold front.

The national forecaster has predicted a fairly dramatic shift in the weather this week across the country with temperatures reaching freezing, frost, and sleet expected in some parts of the country and finally, snow!

Temperatures will run 18° to 24° above normal Monday with high temperatures in the lower to middle 60°s.

Beginning Tuesday and continuing through the foreseeable future, highs are going to remain in the 40s, with lows in the low- to mid-20s. It also won't traverse snow-covered ground, keeping the cold air warmer than it might otherwise be.

However, the bottom line is that you should never believe a detailed United Kingdom snow forecast more than three days ahead. The change to colder air will happen in three stages. Elsewhere lows in the middle to upper 30s will be felt as far south as the coastline.

If this evaporative cooling continues for long enough, the rain can eventually turn to snow. The video below shows you why we will turn wintry in MI.

"2010 was exceptionally cold in December and, since then, December months have been relatively mild, in fact, 2015 was exceptionally mild, it broke all records for being mild and wet as well", Steven Keates, a meteorologist at the Met Office told the Telegraph.

So as you can see, the temperature is crucial as to what falls from the sky, with even half a degree making a huge difference.

Friday: Partly sunny with a high near 31 degrees and a low of about 23 degrees.
