Tracking another weak winter weather maker

Good Tuesday to one and all. Another system is diving into the bluegrass today and will bring a touch of light snow and light rain. This doesn’t look to amount to a whole heck of a lot, but I will keep a close eye on it.

This is ahead of a quick-hitting shot of cold air that surges in for Tonight into Tuesday. Winds are going to crank as this bad boy rolls into town. Highs today will be in the mid 30s in the north and mid 40s in the far south. Most will see temps drop quickly as our cold front moves in this afternoon and evening.

As always, I have your tracking hookup:

You wanna talk about a prolonged period of winds… we have mild and cold gusts on the way over the next week.

The mild blows our temps up to 60 ish by the end of the week. That’s when showers break out as a cold front drops in from the northwest. This front will get into the region and put the brakes on as areas of low pressure develop and move along it.

The setup is similar to the one we had a few weeks ago, but that doesn’t mean it will produce the exact same weather you had before. Here’s the look from late Friday through Sunday…

Special

Most of what happens with this will depend on exactly where that front decides to hang out and which of those lows, if any, decide to become a big daddy.

This is a potent setup for a busy travel weekend. It’s one that can bring you heavy rain and thunder, wintry weather or a combination of the two. I lean toward a combo of the two.

Much colder air funnels in behind the nasty weather. That keeps our White Christmas Meter in the chance category:
