Here comes the cold change

Good Tuesday to one and all. A massive change in the overall pattern across North America is about to take place. This change will bring us a lot of chilly and cold air over the next few weeks.

That chilly change will be ushered in by some showers and thunderstorms today into Wednesday. This action will be rather scattered today and more prominent across western Kentucky. Our network of radars will finally get busy today:

The actual cold front will work into the region on Wednesday and that’s when the best threat for showers and thunder will be with us. Winds will gust up as colder air moves in. highs tomorrow will likely stay in the low 60s.

A disturbance on the back edge of the front will move in on Thursday and that will give us a good shot of some showers:


That may keep our temps in the upper 50s for highs and could make for a rather ugly weather day.

The forecast into the upcoming weekend calls for another cold front to arrive Friday night into Saturday. This could bring a shower or two to town. It will also mean a reinforcing shot of chilly air. Highs from Friday through Sunday will be in the upper 50s to low 60s. Lows will drop into the mid and upper 30s for some. Any night that features clear and calm conditions could give us some frost.

An even colder shot of air is likely to move in early next week:

GFS 3Have a great day and take care.
