The return of winter

Good Monday to one and all. Old man winter came roaring back into the bluegrass state on Sunday. Heavy rains, gusty winds and a big temperature crash made for a wild ending to our weekend. Now, we turn our attention to a much colder pattern settling in across our region.

Early morning travellers will likely have to deal with an ice up. Temps will be in the 20s and all that water from the weekend rain will turn to ice. Slick spots on area roads will be a good bet this morning, so slow down and take your time.

Highs later this afternoon will top out in the mid and upper 30s for most of the area. Gusty winds will make it feel colder than that.

The cold front that passed through here last night has slowed down just to our east. That will allow for a couple of waves of low pressure to develop along the boundary. Those systems will throw moisture back into parts of central and eastern Kentucky through Wednesday. This means a light wintry mix will be possible at times.

Some of that will increase late today from the southwest and you can track it on regional radar.

Many of the models are now hinting at a southern storm possibly impacting our weather by Thursday and Friday. That is another system we will have to keep watch on.

All eyes by the weekend will be on an arctic plunge. This may put much of the eastern half of the country into the deep freeze. Check out the frigid look on the European Model:


If the model is right, that’s a snowy look to go along with the arctic air.

I will have another update later today. Have a great Monday and take care.
