Good Tuesday, folks. A powerhouse of a storm across the Plains states is affecting our weather with scattered showers. The real impact from this storm comes Wednesday as wet and windy weather kicks into high gear.
The showers out there Tuesday morning will scoot through quickly, with afternoon sunshine in some areas. Winds will increase and highs will spike into the mid- and upper 60s.
Winds will really crank up Tuesday night and Wednesday, and higher gusts could reach 40 mph. A slow-moving line of showers and thunderstorms then sweeps in from west to east during the day. The highest chance of rain for Central and Eastern Kentucky comes during the afternoon and evening.
Rain totals of around one inch are possible. Locally higher amounts are possible.
Colder and drier air moves in Thursday and Friday.
A notable cold blast sweeps in over the weekend and could bring some rain and snow to our region. The European Model suggests that for Saturday with the potential for some flurries Saturday night and Sunday on a strong northwesterly wind flow:
Enjoy the mild weather Tuesday and take care.
