Good Tuesday evening, folks. We have one more mild day ahead of us before a big change blows in for the end of the week. Winter is finally going to find us here in the Bluegrass state as we kick off the long Christmas weekend.
Here’s a breakdown:
- Thursday starts with showers and thunderstorms and temps in the 50s.
- A cold front swings through, with temps dropping below freezing from west to east during the afternoon and early evening.
- Winds will gust to between 40 mph and 50 mph from late Thursday to early Friday.
- Snow showers ands squalls will become likely as northwesterly winds set up. The flow coming from Lake Michigan is likely to be a strong one, and this should put down a light snowfall across Central and Eastern Kentucky.
- I really think much of the area will pick up a light accumulation of snow, and this could be enough to cause some travel problems. Parts of Eastern and Southeastern Kentucky could pick up a couple of inches if the upslope flow plays out as expected.
- Temps Friday might not get out of the 20s, and the wind chill will make it feel like single digits at times.
Make it a great evening and take care.
