Gusty showers usher in a wintry pattern

Good Sunday, everyone. A strong cold front is working across the bluegrass state today and this will bring a round of gusty showers our way. This front will also serve as the return of Old Man Winter. We are tracking a couple of snow makers later in the coming week.

Clouds will increase early today as southwesterly winds boost thermometers into the 50s. Widespread showers will develop in western Kentucky and these will roll in late in the afternoon and evening hours. Here’s regional radar to track the drops:

Those showers will continue into early Monday as winds continue to crank up. Colder air will slowly filter in from the west later in the day.

That colder air will set the stage for a possible snowfall Tuesday night and Wednesday. The models continue to show  a fairly strong signal for for low pressure to develop across the western Gulf of Mexico and head toward the Carolinas.

Here’s the look from the GFS:

That’s a track that can put down a swath of moderate to heavy snow along and north of the low. Will that include the bluegrass state? The models are coming around to that idea.

A more significant blast of cold will move in by the end of the week into next weekend. That may produce a few more snow chances.

Have a wonderful Sunday and take care.
