Another cold front arrives this weekend

Good Friday, folks. Our chilly change continues to settle into the bluegrass state and things will grow colder in time. This happens as a series of cold fronts dive into the region from the northwest. The next one arrives on the scene to start the weekend.

Today will find us just ahead of that front and that spells nice weather. We will see plenty of sunny skies as temps head toward the low 60s this afternoon. The day will start off on a very chilly note with upper 30s and low 40s. Here are the lows from the Kentucky Mesonet:

The weather looks great for high school football with temps in the mid 50s at kickoff.

Clouds will quickly increase later tonight into early Saturday as a cold front sweeps in from the west. Showers will then increase as colder air moves back in:

NAMTemps on Saturday should run in the low and middle 50s for much of the day. Winds will be gusty and that will only add to the chill.

Skies clear Saturday night into Sunday morning and that may allow for frost to form. Readings will drop into the low and middle 30s.  The rest of Sunday looks good with readings around 60 for highs.

Even colder air blows into town on Tuesday as another powerful front swings in. The growing season is likely to end next week as lows drop into the 20s:GFS 2Highs may not get out of the 40s for a few days. I can’t rule out some chilly showers during that time and we will need to see if something else can fall from the sky. Some models are spitting out some flakes with the rain. Hmmm

Have a great Friday and take care.
