Good Friday evening everyone and welcome to the first weekend of December. Things are kicking off on a great weather note with fair skies and pleasant temps. It won’t stay that way for long as heavy rain moves back in by Sunday.
This will increase the threat for flooding into the first half of next week. Rain amounts from Sunday through Wednesday should average between 2 and 5 inches across most of Kentucky. This would be more than enough to cause some high water problems… especially along our rivers. Many of the rivers are already swollen or in flood because of the last round of rain.
Cold air is going to work in and shut the rains off on Wednesday and should also give us a period of snow. I really like the look of the European Model for the second half of the week:
That’s some big time arctic cold air working into the northern half of the country by Thursday and Friday. That blast of cold settles in here into next weekend and may include some overrunning snows.
Moral of the story… we have a ton of active weather ahead of us and we will be here to walk you through it all.
Have a great rest of your Friday and take care.
