Good Thursday to one and all. A winter storm across the plains states will throw a wintry mess into parts of central and eastern Kentucky this evening into the overnight. This is all part of a very active weather pattern that has a few more rounds of winter to send our way next week.
Clouds will slowly thicken up today as cold air remains. Readings will generally run in the low to mid 30s for most of the state. A light mix of rain, sleet, freezing rain and snow will develop across western Kentucky early today and work eastward this evening.
This will set the stage for a messy period from late this evening into the overnight hours. Here’s the area most at risk for a bit of ice:
Here’s what you need to track the mess moving in:
Much warmer air will move in by morning and that means everything will change to light rain. A scattered shower or two will hang around into Friday as temps surge into the 50s on a strong southwesterly wind.
Colder air will work back in for Saturday as a separate storm develops across the east coast. That may throw a shower into our region with a chilly wind keeping temps in the low 40s for highs.
The next storm rolls our way later Monday into Tuesday. That one will cause an increase in showers and storms and gusty winds ahead of it. Much colder air will then funnel in behind it later Tuesday and Wednesday and set the stage for some snow.
That’s a setup that will create a lot of wind around here to go with the cold and on and off snow chances.
Make it a great Thursday and take care.
