Good Thursday everybody. It’s a much colder weather pattern taking over for the next few days as we finally dry things out. This dry weather may not last very long as another rainy system takes aim at us into early Thanksgiving week.
In the short term… it’s cold. Here are the numbers from the GFS:
High temps today will range from 40-45 for much of central and eastern Kentucky as a cold northwesterly wind makes it feel even colder. There is the possibility of a snowflake or two early this morning with the best chance in the east and southeast.
The cold weather hangs tough into Friday with lows down in the low and mid 20s and afternoon highs in the upper 40s. Skies should be mainly sunny.
Clouds will increase over the weekend with some rain arriving by Sunday. This may be the start of another heavy rain maker for much of the Ohio Valley. Look at the forecast totals from the GFS for early next week:
That looks ugly and is something for us to watch over the next few days. Lexington is just about to crack the top 10 wettest years on record and the above numbers would certainly do the trick.
I continue to see signs of a big flip into a full blown winter pattern coming by the end of this month. Many of the models are trying to hone in on Thanksgiving Weekend into the following week as the period we say a big hello to winter.
I will be talking more about that later today. Enjoy your Thursday and take care.
