Rainy times on the way

Good Saturday to one and all. It’s finally feeling the part of December across central and eastern Kentucky. Snow flurries and snow showers are pushing to our east, but the cold weather remains out there today. Don’t get too used to this. Milder air is ready to move back in with the potential for a lot of rain.

Today looks good with highs in the upper 30s with partly sunny skies. Winds will be gusty and that will make it feel even colder.

Sunday will find clouds increasing with temps back in the 40s for highs. Those clouds are ahead of our first rain maker arriving late Sunday night into Monday:

GFS 2

As that moves away, milder air surges back in for late Tuesday into Wednesday. Highs could reach the low 60s by this time. This air is ahead of another storm system with rain back in town Wednesday into early Thursday.

Odds currently favor that system moving out by Christmas Eve and Day, with dry fair skies and slightly above normal temps.

A HUGE storm system then slowly works in here Christmas weekend:

That’s the GFS and it is really going crazy with rainfall totals over the next week and change:

GFS 4

That would lead to a flood potential across much of the Ohio Valley if it’s right. The Canadian Model is also highlighting the Ohio Valley for a ton of rain during the same time:

That’s a setup we will REALLY have to keep a close eye on in the coming days.

Make it a great Saturday and take care.
