Don't put the snow shovel away just yet, it looks like Mother Nature has at least one more frosty punch to deliver.

The National Weather Service in Paducah, Kentucky has issued both a Special Weather Statement and a Hazardous Weather Outlook for the entire Tri-State area that calls for another strong cold front to make its way into our area Tuesday night that will cause temperatures to drop quickly, and the forecasted rain fall for the area to change over to sleet then finally snow early Wednesday morning throughout the day Wednesday.

The exact Special Weather Statement from the National Weather Service is as follows:
