Good Saturday to one and all. December is off and running on a very mild note as our temps hit the 60s for a few days. While the weather is warm now, changes toward cold are showing up over the next week and change.
Now that November is behind us, let’s take a look back at our eleventh month. Temps finished around 4 degrees below normal for Lexington. We had 19 days with temps of 32 degrees or below and that’s the most since 20 in 1995. 28 of the 30 days featured temps below 40 degrees and that’s the most on record. Only 1976 comes close with 27. The cold in November was impressive.
December has flipped a switch to milder for a few days. Temps today make a run toward 60 with a few more clouds rolling in. Winds will be very gusty, too. A weak system is likely to produce scattered showers around here on Sunday with temps into the low 60s.
Monday may be the warmest of the bunch with highs from 60-65 with gusty winds cranking up. Those gusty winds are ahead of a strong cold front that moves in on Tuesday.
Gusty rains and a clap of thunder will work eastward across the state…
That’s a quick shot of cold diving in behind the front for Wednesday. That shot gets booted out of here very quickly because a stronger front arrives by the following Friday or Saturday. The GFS likes Friday…
The middle and end of December has a very interesting look to it.
Make it a great Saturday and take care.
