Good Saturday everyone and Happy New Year. The last day of 2011 is upon us and we now turn our attention toward ringing in the new year on a high note. The weather will be fairly quiet as 2012 starts, but a big change moves in over the next few days.
We will see clouds across the state early today and these will be slow to break as we go into the afternoon. We should see some rays of sun as our high temps stay in the 40s. Readings will be in the mid and upper 30s as the clock strikes 2012.
Here’s how the 5 Day Forecast shakes out:
New Year’s Day will feature a cold front sweeping across Kentucky. This front brings a big change to our weather as the coldest air of the season moves in behind it. We should see a shower or two along the front as winds really kick up. Temps will start the day in the 40s before falling into the 30s by evening.
The real blast of arctic air arrives on Monday and carries us into Tuesday. The European Model really shows the depth of the cold air:
Snow showers and squalls will develop Monday into Tuesday and I do expect some accumulation from these. How much is yet to be determined.
High temps will stay in the 20s for Monday and Tuesday with lows hitting the teens by Tuesday morning. Gusty winds will make it feel much colder than that. Brrr!
Have a great Saturday and Happy New Year!
