Winter takes a brief break

Good Tuesday to one and all. Old Man Winter is going to be taking a small break over the next week. That doesn’t mean things are balmy during this time, but it does mean we are through with the harsh weather, for now.

A cold front is swinging across the state Tuesday with a band of light rain and falling temps. Readings drop into the 30s and hold there for most of the day. Some afternoon snowflakes will be possible across Central and Eastern Kentucky.

Highs on Wednesday will be in the low 30s, with a passing flurry or two. Another weak front moves in by Thursday night and Friday. That could squeeze out a few flakes as it moves in.

Much milder air surges in this weekend, with highs in the 50s in many areas. This is ahead of a potent storm system moving in early next week. That storm then unlocks the cold to return:


That’s from the European model. Here’s the GFS illustrating the big change:


The Canadian Model isn’t as strong with that system and is farther south and colder:

This will be a drastic change ahead as temps go from above normal:


To well below normal in the blink of an eye:

Make it a great Tuesday and take care.
