Good Tuesday afternoon. Record snows blanketed much of Central and Eastern Kentucky in the morning. It doesn’t take a whole lot to get a record snowfall at this time of year, but the records are records, and it’s impressive to break one.
It has now snowed on two dates in Lexington this fall: October 24 and today. Both featured record snowfall for the respective dates. We picked up a trace on the 24th and nearly a half-inch this morning.
In the short term, lows will be in the upper teens tonight under mainly clear skies. Highs will be in the 30s on Wednesday. Showers will increase by Friday ahead of a warmer surge of air this weekend. This will be ahead of a big storm system that develops in the plains states and rolls toward the Great Lakes by Monday.
Showers and thunderstorms will develop ahead of the front as temps spike toward the 60s. That front slams in here Monday and unleashes another shot of arctic air:
The air behind that has a chance to be as cold as what we have out there today and might also produce, at least, some lake effect snow.
Have a great day and take care.
