Active weather kicks off December

Good Saturday and welcome to December. The month is off and running on a very active note across central and eastern Kentucky. A potent storm system is bringing gusty winds to go along with showers and thunderstorms.

Once this system moves through, Old Man Winter looks to return as we head into next week. I will get to that in a moment.

For now, let’s talk about the stormy start to December. A few of today’s storms may be on the strong side, especially across the western half of the state. Winds are the main player of the day, with or without thunderstorms. Gusts of 40mph-50mph will be possible. Some of the stronger storms may have some hail with them.

Sunday looks much better with highs around 60 with a mix of sun and clouds. Winds will still be rather gusty.

colder air presses in here on Monday as a weak front drops in from the northwest. That may have a rain or snow shower along and behind it, with a better chance of snow showers moving in as early as Monday night:

From there, light snow and snow showers will be noted Tuesday into Wednesday with light accumulations showing up.

As a cold pattern settles in next week, a storm system is likely to roll eastward across the southern part of the country then try and turn the corner up the coast. As expected, the models are all over the place with this storm and that’s to be expected. Winter weather lovers would probably like to go ahead and lock in the last run of the European Model:

That could bring rain or snow or a combo of the two to our region.

The European Ensembles are currently on board for a track good for some Kentucky snows:

We still have plenty of time to watch this pattern, but the potential is certainly there.

Let’s get you back to the storm system we are dealing with today. I have you all set to do some Saturday storm tracking:
