Good Thursday to one and all. A cold front is ushering in some much cooler changes across central and eastern Kentucky. This isn’t the strongest front in the world, but it is likely signifying a bigger change in the overall pattern for the weeks ahead.
Thursday’s front brings a few showers to the region for the first part of the day. Afternoon clearing will take over as winds stay rather gusty, with highs from the low to middle 60s.
I have you set with your regular cast of weather-tracking characters:
A sneaky little shower-maker develops to our southwest and moves in late Friday and Saturday. How much rain this will produce is up in the air. The GFS has a pocket of significant rain totals during this time:
This is on the nose of some much warmer air pushing back in from Sunday into early next week. That push now looks to keep the Sunday front just to our north, but it can still throw scattered thunderstorms our way Sunday and Monday, especially across the north.
I’m still watching he potential for a much bigger system to affect our region for the middle and end of next week. Some of the models have a pretty wild look:
Have a great Thursday and take care.
