A cold front arrives late Saturday

Good Saturday, everyone. We have a windy day on tap for the Bluegrass State, as a weak cold front drops in from the north. This will shave a few degrees off our temps into Sunday, with another up and down temperature week on the way.

Highs Saturday reach 50 to 55 degrees for much of the region with a mix of sun and clouds. Winds will be gusty and could reach 30 mph at times.

Colder air shows up behind the front on Sunday, with temps in the 20s to start and 40s in the afternoon. The NAM has highs only in the low 40s for many:

The models keep a few flurries flying awfully close to eastern and northeastern parts of the state…

Those chilly winds will mild up on Monday, as another southwesterly push of air moves in. Temps will then be mild through the middle of the week, but a bowling ball of a system moves in here by Thursday and Friday…

As you can see, it does tap some colder air into our region as it passes through here. Can that throw¬† wet flake into the rain at some point? Meh… We shall see.

Temps rebound behind that, but the cold signals I’ve shown you of late continue like they will win the battle as we head into December. It’s rare we get every single set of Ensembles to show the exact same setup, but they are doing that late in the first week of December.

Notice all the blocking over the top, with a deepening trough across the eastern half of the country:

European Ensembles

European Control

GFS

Canadian Ensembles 7 day average centered around the same time:

That’s pretty wild to see every single Ensembles package showing almost the same look across all of North America. This happens as our blocking signals actually grow stronger, while the current mild signals grow weaker and even disappearing. If they go away entirely… Look out.

Have a great Saturday and take care.
