A small taste of winter ahead

Good Wednesday to one and all. We’ve made it to the middle of the week with one more day of very nice weather. That all changes over the next few days as a cold front seeps eastward across the state. A touch of wintertime will follow that.

Temps spike ahead of a strong cold front rolling in late tonight. That front has a few showers along it, but the real action comes with a wave of low pressure developing along it. That low will likely put down heavy rains across the eastern half of the state…

Here are your weather toys for the day:

Temps tumble through the 40s on Thursday with 30s for highs showing up Friday and Saturday. A few snow flurries and snow showers will also show up Friday into Friday evening. That’s mainly across central and eastern Kentucky. Here’s the simulated radar from the NAM…

NAMAgain, this isn’t a big deal, but it’s a big shock to the system. There’s a small chance for a rooftop coating or two in the east before the flakes wrap up Friday night.

From there, we focus on a big storm system coming for Christmas week. Temps warm early next week as waves of heavy rain move in. Precipitation totals through Christmas are impressive…

GFSCan we get some cold and wintry stuff by Christmas Eve or Day? There’s a chance at this point. Notice how the warm flow gets replaced by a typical brand of colder air…

GFS 2Make it a great Wednesday and take care.
