A Cold Weekend Before The BIG Weekend

Good Saturday to one and all. Much of the bluegrass state saw some light snow and flurries on Friday to help fight off a case of spring fever. We have a seasonably cold weekend in store as we get set for the busy Christmas week that’s ahead of us.

Our short term weather features a mix of sun and clouds today with temps running in the upper 30s for highs. There is a very weak disturbance to our north and this may pass close enough to the state to produce some late day and evening snow flurries. The best chance will be in the north and east. Your regional radar should pick up on whatever is out there:

Here’s the 5 Day Forecast:

– Sunday will be cold to start with low and mid 20s in most areas. Sunshine will boost thermometers into the 40-45 degree range for highs.

– Clouds thicken up on Monday ahead of our next storm system. Temps will be close to 50 degrees for a high.

– That next storm rolls from Texas into the Ohio Valley on Tuesday and Wednesday and will bring more rain to the bluegrass state. This should also boost of temps back into the 50s for Tuesday. Colder air will then filter in behind the departing low for Wednesday.

– The pattern heading into Christmas weekend is one that can actually bring some snow to Kentucky. A big dip in the jet stream will be noted by Friday and this may allow for a storm to form just to our east and throw some snow our way into the weekend. The GFS is mirroring what the Canadian Model and GFS Ensembles have been showing for several days:

Let’s see how this all plays out in the coming days.  Have a great Saturday and take care.
