Good Wednesday evening. We are about to get into a wild period of weather across the Bluegrass State. A strong storm will roll toward the Great Lakes early Thursday and this brings a cold front across our region. That’s when the fun begins.
Here’s a breakdown of my latest thoughts:
- Thursday will start with showers and thunderstorms across much of the state with temps in the 50s.
- A strong cold front swings through during the afternoon and this will cause our temps to tank. Readings will drop below freezing from west to east during the evening hours.
- Winds are going to be very gusty and this may cause some issues. Gusts of 40mph-50mph will be possible from Thursday into early Friday.
- An area of snow showers and squalls will move eastward into the evening hours. The flow by Thursday night and Friday will come down the length of Lake Michigan and spawn widespread snow showers and squalls across central and eastern Kentucky into Friday. I have no changes to my snow forecast.
- That could cause some slick travel Friday morning for some areas.
- Temps Friday will struggle to get out of the 20s as winds continue to gust to 30mph. That will make it feel like the single digits at times.
I will have another update later tonight. Enjoy the rest of your evening and take care.
