A winter preview of a pattern?

Good Thursday, everyone. A series of cold front will cross the bluegrass state over the next few weeks. Each of these will help establish a fairly cold pattern for the last half of October. The overall set actually looks a lot like one you would see during the winter months.

The first front to impact the region continues to push to our east today. A wave of low pressure will bring more showers to the region today. You can track those on our radar networks:

Today’s showers will be chilly ones with highs only in the middle and upper 50s.

As skies clear tonight, temps will drop into the upper 30s and low 40s. There is the smallest chance for some patchy frost in the north. Highs tomorrow will hit the low 60s on a gusty southwesterly wind.

Our next cold front will rapidly approach the state on Saturday morning. A few showers and gusty winds will be noted. This is some pretty cold air coming in behind that bad boy:


Saturday’s highs will likely be even cooler than what we have today. That may set us up for readings to drop into the middle 30s by Sunday morning and toward the low and mid 30s by Monday morning. A little frost on the pumpkins will be possible both days.

The front arriving on Tuesday of next week will really unleash a winter looking pattern. Check out how far south the cold air gets…

GFS 3Frost and freezing conditions are very possible around here by Wednesday and Thursday. If you are going to get some early season flakes around here… that’s a pattern that could deliver. We shall see.

Have a great day and take care.
