Good Saturday to one and all. A blast of November air has arrived here in the bluegrass state as we begin a very active weather pattern. The cold air is being ushered in a strong cold front and a band of showers early today.
Temps this morning will be in the low and middle 40s as winds gust up. Showers will work eastward by late morning and early afternoon as skied become partly cloudy. Our highs across central and eastern Kentucky will generally run in the low and mid 50s. Gusty winds will make it feel even cooler than that.
Track today’s weather:
A wave of low pressure will work across the Tennessee Valley tonight and early Sunday and will throw some more moisture back into the area. The highest chance for showers will be across the south and east. That stuff will pull away Sunday afternoon as our skies brighten. Highs will struggle to get to 50 in the east with low 50s across the Lexington metro.
Clear skies will allow temps Sunday night to drop toward the upper 20s and lower 30s. A hard frost or light freeze will be possible for much of the region.
Monday and Tuesday look like pretty good days with highs warming into the 60s by Tuesday. Our next front arrives on Wednesday with a shower or storm. That will knock our temps back down a few degrees. Another cold front enters the picture by Friday with more widespread showers and storms possible. That may carry us into the start of the weekend. Here’s the European Model:
Have a great Saturday and take care.
