Good evening everyone and thanks for making the blog your source for all things Kentucky weather. We have a powerful cold front that will roll through the state later this evening and it will pack a bit of a punch.
Winds are cranking ahead of this front and that trend will continue into the overnight and Friday. Gusts of 30mph will be likely.
The front also has a line of showers and thunderstorms along it and this will push in late this evening. Some of these storms may be strong or even severe across the north. You can track the action here…
Once the front blows through, temps will take a big dive into the weekend. Readings on Friday will stay in the upper 50s for much of the region with some afternoon and evening showers possible.
Those showers will hang around the eastern half of the state into early Thursday. The air is cold enough that some WET SNOW may mix in with the rain across the highest elevations of far southeastern Kentucky. Brrrrrr!!
Saturday will see temps in the low to mid 50s for highs. Frost is still likely for Sunday morning as many folks see thermometers in the low 30s.
Buckle up… it’s a wild ride for the next few days.
Have a great evening and take care.
