Getting better to start the weekend

Good Friday, folks. The past week has been about as wintry as you will ever find it for the middle of November. 6 of the past 7 days featured frozen precipitation falling on the city of Lexington, with the first snowfall and a significant ice event. While things are calmer this weekend, I still have my eye on a couple of fronts before we get to Thanksgiving Day.

Our Friday begins with slick spots on area roads as temps are in the mid and upper 20s. Any leftover flurry moves away as partly sunny skies return. Highs range from the 30s in the north with 40s in the south.

Saturday is a breezy day with some clouds filtering in. Afternoon temps are in the 40s for many, but a few 50s show up in the south.

Sunday is a windy day as a weak cold front approaches from the northwest. This may bring a few showers by the end of the day. with a rain or snow shower Sunday night:

Colder air comes in behind that front for Monday and the flow has some sneaky cold it for the run up to Thanksgiving. Temps won’t be as cold as what we have been seeing, but that doesn’t mean they still won’t be below normal:

That current call is for mainly dry weather into Thanksgiving Day, but the setup makes me a littler nervous into the rest of the weekend. Temps will turn milder, but rain may become a player before all is said and done.

The milder few days won’t last long as the pattern is already screaming “look out below”! The signal forĀ final week of NovemberĀ is for some serious blocking to go up, allowing for another cold and wintry period to begin…
