Good Thursday and welcome to the month of November. The new month is off and running on a rather chilly note across the Bluegrass State. The good news is that Sandy is finally pulling away from us and will leave us with improving conditions.
Temps today will start off cold, with readings in the 20s. Partly sunny skies will boost temperatures to near 50 degrees across Central Kentucky. The eastern part of the state might see a few more clouds and the possibility of a sprinkle or two. That should keep temps in the upper 40s. Some of the models try to bring a weak system into the region later tonight. Could that produce a light shower?
Friday looks like the best day of the next week as readings rise into the 50s. Skies will be partly sunny as a nice little breeze blows.
The weekend system I talked about yesterday looks to arrive a bit faster than I first thought. Clouds should increase Saturday, and some showers will be possible before the day is over. There might be one heck of a temp gradient setting up from north to south. More showers and a drop in temps should follow for Sunday. The European Model continues to advertise this well:
Temps for Sunday and Monday should come back down into the 40s for highs. There is even a small chance for some sprinkles or flurries by Monday.
Election Day looks dry and chilly, with temps in the upper 40s.
There are growing signs of a huge storm going up across the Plains states by the end of next week. The European Model is all over it:
That might really cause a wild temperature ride around here as we head toward the middle of the month.
Have a great Thursday and take care.
