December starts off on a mild note

Good Friday and welcome to the final day of November. That means meteorological winter starts on Saturday and it will start off on a fairly mild note. This is a mild up we’ve been talking about for a long while, but it won’t be the prettiest period of weather we’ve seen.

Temps today will hit the low and mid 50s under partly sunny skies. This will be one of the few mild days we’ve had in Lexington this November. The month will finish with temps around 4 degrees below normal and around 8 degrees colder than last November.

Temps this weekend make a run at 60 degrees and we may even hit the low 60s for a few days. You can see that on the GFS:

How common is it for us to hit 60 in December? Turns out, it’s very common. Out of the past 41 Decembers in Lexington… 33 of them had temps of 60 degrees or better.

A cold front arrives on the scene Tuesday with a gusty line of showers moving through:

Temps behind this front will drop into the low 40s for highs by Wednesday:

A more significant push of cold air should arrive by later next weekend and that is likely to push much of the region toward a more wintry pattern.

Enjoy your Friday and take care.
