Good Thursday to one and all. We have a very active weather day taking shape across the bluegrass state. High winds and heavy rain will increase later today and carry us into early Friday. This continues to be part of our hyper-active pattern we seem to be stuck in.
Here’s a breakdown of what to expect today through Friday:
- A Wind Advisory is out for the entire region through Friday morning
- Winds may gust to greater than 50mph at times this evening into the overnight hours
- Showers and a few storms increase this afternoon and evening. Heavy rains of and inch or two will be possible
- Local high water issues may develop across the southeastern parts of the state
I will have your tracking tools in a bit.
Colder air comes in behind this departing system on Friday with another system due into the region by Saturday night and Sunday. That may bring some rain and snow with it:
A few of the models are really turning the New Year’s Eve system into a big rain maker across Kentucky. The GFS is showing some big rains:
The European has some big totals too:

The European follows that up with another system that has more of a winter signal:
The GFS Ensembles continue to show the colder than normal shots taking control of our weather through the first few weeks of the new year:
I leave you with your Thursday tracking tools:
