Good Tuesday to one and all. The busiest travel period of the entire year is about to begin, and we have some rain ready to roll into the region. This is all part of a very active weather pattern taking shape over the next few weeks.
We have nice weather out there Tuesday, with highs in the mid-40s north to low 50s south. A few clouds will be on the increase.
Our rain-maker arrives quickly from west to east late Tuesday night and Wednesday morning. If that can get in here quick enough, I could see a few areas of sleet across Northern Kentucky. The latest rainfall forecast from the GFS shows close to an inch of rain in the west and north through Thanksgiving morning:
Most of that rain moves away by noon on Thanksgiving, but another fast-moving system moves our way by late on Black Friday. The models keep going back and forth on whether this can deliver some precipitation to our region. The latest GFS says yes:
That will deliver gusty winds and a much colder day for Saturday.
The late Sunday and Monday storm system continues to look stronger and stronger as we get closer:
While mainly a rain- and wind-maker, there’s a chance we could get some snowflakes on the tail end of that.
The stronger that storm is, the better the chance the one coming in after it takes a farther south and east track as we close out November.
Here’s the GFS showing rain and snow:

Make it a great Tuesday and take care.
