Good Thursday everyone. Our thermometers are set to soar in Central and Eastern Kentucky just in time for the weekend. Things look a little toasty for the short term, but the cold will come back by the middle of next week.
Morning temps today were in low 20s. Those readings will rise toward 50 by the afternoon. Thermometers on Friday will hit the 50s, and it’s all up from there. Highs this weekend will flirt with 60, with a mix of sun and clouds. A few showers will be possible by Sunday. Mid-60s will be possible by Monday and Tuesday.
A strong cold front looks to have a ticket for the Bluegrass State by Tuesday night. The front swings through here and might drop our temps by more than 30 degrees in less than 24 hours. Some of the models also suggest a thunder or snowflakes:
That’s the GFS, and it has been leading the charge with this cold shot. Other models are now coming around to a similar scenario.
Those same models also are going toward a bigger shot of cold air diving in by the following weekend:
Check out that air moving out of southern Canada and diving southward. I continue to highlight the period of Dec. 7 to 14 for a big, big change toward winter here and for much of the eastern half of the country.
Have a great day and take care.
