Good Thursday evening everyone. We’re heading into our New Year’s weekend on a breezy and mild note and we have one final system to impact the state before the year is over. After that… it’s a blast of winter that will take hold.
Low pressure works into the Ohio Valley later Friday with an increase in winds and clouds. This may cause a scattered shower to break out during the afternoon and evening and this shows up well on the GFS:
That’s a fast mover and will be long gone by the time we head out to those New Year’s Eve parties later Saturday.
New Year’s Day will feature an arctic front diving through the state with some rain showers ahead of it and falling temps and snow showers behind it. Check out the blast of cold from the European Model:
Highs will struggle to get out of the 20s for Monday and Tuesday as lows dip into the low and mid teens. Gusty winds will make it feel even colder. We are also likely to get in on periods of snow showers and squalls that may cause some problems.
Have a wonderful evening and take care.
