Good Friday and welcome to a much colder day in Kentucky. A sharp cold front is pushing through early today and will whittle more than 20 degrees off our Thursday highs. After a temperature rebound this weekend, the forecast will take on a very wintry look and feel next week and beyond.
A gusty band of showers will accompany the front across the state this morning. Temps behind the front will stay in the upper 30s and lower 40s, with a sprinkle or flurry possible.
Some late-day sun will be possible for many areas.
Saturday looks like a nice day, with sunny skies and highs in the 40s. Sunday will feature highs into the 50s, but a strong cold front is likely to move our way by the end of the day. This will increase the threat for widespread rain:
Much colder air will then work in behind that front early next week. That might set the stage for a southern storm system to work in by Wednesday. Several computer models have suggested that this could be a snow-maker. The GFS is one of them:
We will have to wait and see if that storm really does exist. Regardless, the pattern continues to look very cold for the rest of the month:
There’s a lot of winter to go before we can get to springtime.
Make it a fantastic Friday and take care.
