First flakes possible late Saturday

Good Saturday to one and all. We have a very interesting weather day taking shape across Central and Eastern Kentucky. A powerful cold front sweeps in late in the day with our first real brush with winter weather.

Here’s a breakdown of the day:

  • Partly sunny skies and gusty winds will boost early-afternoon highs in the 50s. A high of 60 is possible in the east.
  • The cold front arrives late in the afternoon with a 20-degree temperature drop coming in behind it.
  • A band of rain and snow showers follows the front into the evening.
  • This is really nothing more than the possibility of seeing the first snowflakes of the season. If you’re looking for anything to stick, keep looking.
  • Leftover snow flurries will be possible Saturday night and Sunday morning, with lows in the low 20s.
  • Highs on Sunday will reach only the 30s. Gusty winds will make it feel colder than that.

I have you all set to track Saturday’s action:

The Thanksgiving week starts clear and chilly, but it could end with a big storm system affecting our weather. The models are all over the place with how that system works out, but the GFS shows a little of everything:

GFSWe have a lot of time to see how that one plays out.

Until then, let’s see if we will get the first snowflakes of the year before Saturday is over. Take care.
