Good Friday everybody. Our New Year’s weekend is upon us and everyone is always talking about change as they flip the calendar to a brand new year. Mother nature is in a changeable mood as she is going to send us a serious blast of cold to start out 2012.
We are kicking off the holiday weekend on a windy and mild note with temps hitting the low 50s today under a cloudy sky. Winds are going to continue to crank up as a stout little system drops in from the northwest. This will cause showers to increase later today into the overnight hours.
This fast mover speeds away early Saturday as our skies slowly clear out. Folks heading out to New Year’s Eve parties should be in good shape as temps drop into the 30s as we say hello to the new year.
That’s when the change begins on the 5 Day Forecast:
An arctic front sweeps across Kentucky on New Year’s Day and will bring our first real taste of winter. Temps will fall from the 40s into the 30s as the day goes on with a few rain showers changing to snow showers.
That will be followed by strong northwesterly winds and a big temp temp to go along with snow showers and squalls. You can see how the snows build in from the northwest:
Temps by Monday and Tuesday should struggle to get out of the upper 20s with lows dipping into the low and mid teens by Tuesday.
Overall… this should be a nice reminder that it really is winter. Have a great Friday and take care.
