This is shaping up to be one of the coldest Halloween's on record in our region.

The National Weather Service in Paducah says Thursday's projected high of 48 in the western Kentucky town would tie for the 4th coldest on record. The record of 43 was set in 1993.

There are several locations in Williamson County serving as warming centers during the extreme cold.

While many of us hated the cold weather of the last three weeks, the brutally cold weather DID provide a benefit we’ll see in the spring and summer.
