A wet weekend begins

Good Saturday, everyone. Wet weather is rolling back into the bluegrass state and it looks to stick around through the weekend. If Santa bought you an umbrella or some rain boots… you are in luck.

The day starts dry with temps surging well into the 50s. Showers will increase this afternoon from west to east.

Current temperatures

The rain will increase tonight into Sunday as a cold front moves in and puts the brakes on. This will allow for waves of low pressure to work along this front into Sunday night. That means some pretty good rain totals are likely. The NAM suggests a good inch of rain will be possible for many:

GFSThat is a MAJOR change from what we’ve been seeing over the past month or so and is an indication of a very cold pattern developing. It’s also likely taking us back into a pattern to where the models aren’t cold enough with what they show.

Can we get some snow and winter weather with the cold that comes this week? The time frame to watch is the end of next week. The new European is in and shows where it THINKS winter precipitation falls…

Euro SnowHave a great Saturday and take care.
