Near record lows start a frigid Friday

Good Friday to one and all. Our taste of December weather continues across the bluegrass state as we head into the weekend. From flakes to freezing temps… we’ve head it all over the past few days.

Many areas got in on the first flakes of the season on Thursday. This was the 10th earliest day to feature flakes in Lexington. My twitter feed was blowing up with shots like this:

Now comes the frigid cold air. Our day is likely to start with record or near record lows in the mid to upper 20s. That’s about as cold as it can get this time of year.

Skies will be partly to mostly sunny today with temps in the mid 40s for highs. Heading out to a high school football game? Bundle up!! Temps will be in the 30s for much of the game.

Saturday will see a few clouds increasing as a cold front works our way. Temps may spike into the low 50s for a few hours during the heart of the afternoon.

The front arrives Saturday night and early Sunday with isolated showers. This is a decent shot of chill coming in behind the boundary:


Sunday’s highs should be closer to 50 degrees with a mix of sun and clouds.

A little bit of a mild up is in store for early next week with temps hitting the low 60s. This is ahead of a storm system that rolls across the state by Wednesday and Thursday. This should be a big rain and wind maker:

GFSMuch colder air will then sweep in here by late Halloween into the first few days of November.

Make it a great day and take care.
