Good Tuesday, folks. Our Election Day is bringing about some big changes across Kentucky. This has nothing to do with politics but plenty to do with the weather. Overall, this is a much colder setup taking shape.
The smell of smoke will fill the air as forest fires continue to burn across the Southeast. Clouds will increase and some late-day showers will be possible. This is ahead of a cold front diving in Tuesday night and early Wednesday. This won’t be a lot of rain, but we will take it.
Chilly air coming in behind this front might keep highs Wednesday in parts of Eastern Kentucky in the upper 40s. Highs in the low 50s look likely for the rest of the state.
Highs in the 50s will be with us Thursday and Friday as we watch a stronger push of cold diving in from the northwest. The models are coming a bit farther west with the trajectory of the cold:
That’s getting awfully close to putting down a snow flurry across the mountains of Eastern Kentucky. Lows this weekend will be in the 20s, with Saturday highs in the low and mid-40s in many areas.
A system next week needs to be watched for the potential of some winter weather across the Ohio Valley:
How about serving up some cold turkey this Thanksgiving week?
Have a great day and take care.
