Ugly weather for the weekend

Good Friday, folks. The weekend is kicking off on a very cold note across central and eastern Kentucky. This doesn’t exactly qualify as breaking news anymore. This is a pattern that is skewed much, much colder than normal.

We’ve also had our fair share of wintry weather over the past few weeks and another round moves in later tonight. This weekend will not be a repeat of what we went through last weekend. Here’s a breakdown:

- Clouds increase today with temperatures topping out in the mid and upper 30s.

- Light precipitation moves in later this evening, but shouldn’t be a very big deal.

- Rain and snow will then increase overnight and there could be a bit of slushy accumulation for a few areas… mainly in the north.

- Any early morning flakes will go over to a cold rain Saturday with temps heading into the middle 30s.

- The area of low pressure responsible for the nasty weather will work to our northeast by Saturday night. That will allow for the light rain to change to a period of light snow with readings dropping into the 20s.

- Sunday will feature a few snow showers and flurries with highs staying in the upper 20s. A light accumulation will be possible for a few spots.

Here are the tracking tools of the day…

Another shot of cold air sweeps in by the middle of next week:

That one may have a few snow showers with it by Tuesday or Wednesday. The pattern that follows that up is likely to produce significant cold and snow chances for Christmas week into the new year.

I will be breaking out the White Christmas Meter over the weekend.

Have a great Friday and take care.
