Good Wednesday, everybody. Our weather pattern over the past month has been awfully consistent. Each week features a warm-up that’s followed by a big blast of cold air. This week’s edition has the cold settling into the state today.
A powerful cold front continues to push across the Bluegrass State early Wednesday. Widespread showers will slowly wind down from west to east during the afternoon hours. The drop in temperatures will be the main story.
Our day will dawn with upper 50s to low 60s in Central and Eastern Kentucky. Once the front passes, look out. Temperatures will tank into the low and middle 40s for a time. They might recover toward 50 by the end of the day.
Let’s track today’s ugly stuff:
Slow clearing will work in late today into this evening, and that will set us up for a cold night. Lows will bottom out in the low to mid-30s.
Thursday will see a mix of sun and clouds, with a small chance of a sprinkle.
Our next weather-maker arrives late Friday and hangs tough through the weekend. Scattered showers and thunderstorms will be common across Central and Eastern Kentucky. It won’t rain the entire time, but it could rain at any time.
An unsettled pattern will hang around into early next week.
Have a great day and take care.
