Good Tuesday, folks. Nice weather continues for a few more days, but a big storm system is about to take shape for the end of the week. That system will have a major impact on our weather with gusty winds, heavy rain and the chance for wraparound flakes.
Temps out there today are in the pleasant mid and upper 40s with a mostly sunny sky. Highs by Wednesday hit the 50s with clouds on the increase. Those clouds are streaming out ahead of a major storm system ready to impact our weather.
Here’s a breakdown of how things look at this point:
- The timeline on this storm is Thursday through early Saturday
- This storm system is massive in coverage and may impact every state east of the Mississippi River
- Rain and wind are likely across Kentucky Thursday into the first half of Friday.
- Rainfall amounts of 1″-3″ appear to be a good bet, especially across central and eastern Kentucky. This may cause flooding issues to develop.
- Colder air may get pulled in behind the departing low, setting up a band of rain and snow that ends as snow late Friday through Saturday morning. I continue to be a little more optimistic of this potential, especially across the eastern half of the state.
The European Model is able to tap just a little more cold air than it’s earlier runs…
Have a great Tuesday and take care.
