Tracking a major change

Good Wednesday everyone, and thanks for stopping by the blog. We have another very nice day in store for the state, but don’t get spoiled by it. A rough-and-tumble few days are ahead of us as a major storm rolls across the region.

Highs today will hit the 50s as a gusty southwesterly breeze blows. Skies will be mostly sunny as high clouds work in by the end of the day.

The next system will be another wild one, arriving late tonight and Thursday. A powerful low will work from the southern plains into the Great Lakes region. That will drag a cold front across the state Thursday, and this is going to raise a ruckus.

Ahead of the front: Showers and thunderstorms with temps in the 50s.

Behind the front: Snow showers and squalls, with temps dropping into the upper 20s and low 30s.

That’s the progression of our weather from Thursday morning to early Thursday evening. The cold air will be announced by winds gusting from 40 to 50 mph during the afternoon and evening, and that might cause some problems.

Snow showers, squalls and flurries will then fill the air Thursday night into Friday:

Northwesterly winds will pick up moisture from the very warm Lake Michigan and keep snow showers and flurries going across Central and Eastern Kentucky through much of Friday. I do expect some light accumulations out of all this. Here’s a first look at the possible snowfall:

I will have another update late today. Have a great day and take care.
