Merry Christmas Eve, everyone! We have a high-impact storm rolling across the Bluegrass State Wednesday. This is bringing wild weather for Kentucky and the entire region.
Let’s review what it brings:
– Heavy rain with some thunder and lightning will be with us early Wednesday. Watch for some local stream problems in the southeast.
– Our low pressure works across the state from south to north early Wednesday afternoon, with a big temperature spike and drop. Highs will hit the low 60s about noon and then fall to about 40 by 5 p.m. Temperatures will drop into the upper 30s Wednesday evening.
– Winds will be very gusty in the central and east, with gusts of more than 40 mph a good bet.
– Flurries and a few snow showers will then fly from west to east Wednesday night and Christmas Morning.

Have a great day and Merry Christmas. Take care.
