Winter returns for the week ahead

Good Sunday to one and all. The final weekend of the year is ending on a rather gloomy weather note across central and eastern Kentucky. Soggy skies and chilly temps are teaming up on us today.

The gloomy of today will give way to much colder weather for the week ahead. This marks the return of Old Man Winter.

Let’s start with today and roll ahead…

Rain will be heavy at times early in the day, but will diminish from south to north during the afternoon hours. Winds will gust up with temps in the low 40s for highs. Your gloomy weather trackers will help you through the day:

Much colder air sinks in later this evening into tonight as a cold front sweeps across the state. This front will have a band of light snow and flurries behind it. Leftover flurries or a light snow shower will be possible into Monday. Highs to start the week will run in the 20s, but gusty winds will make it feel even colder at times.

This sets us up with a very cold pattern that will feature numerous disturbances diving in from the northwest through the rest of the week…

Each of these systems will be accompanied by a swath of light snow and flurries. One of them is going to try to become something more than just a disturbance moving through. The best shot of something like that happening would come later in the week.

The models have been going back and forth on how strong to make this system. Several of the runs recent runs have been showing a fairly big storm developing across the eastern half of the country by Thursday:

This will be something for us to keep a very close eye on as we roll into the first few days of the new year.

Make it a great Sunday and take care.
