Changes for the week ahead

Good Sunday, everyone. Our weekend weather continues to be absolutely awesome across central and eastern Kentucky. Sunny skies and mild temps are just what the weather doctor ordered. Unfortunately, things are about to change as we head into the new week. Winter weather actually shows back up.

Today is another winner with a mix of sun and clouds and temps deep into the 50s. Soak. It. Up!

Today’s clouds will thicken into┬áMonday as a cold front drops in from the northwest. That front brings some late day showers in here, but temps are still in the 50s.

A second front arrives later Tuesday and that one has a nice push of cold air behind it through the end of the week:

A strong northwest flow kicks in behind that front and that will push our temps below freezing for highs. Overnight wind chills may dip into the high single digits.

That same northwest wind is also good for a few flurries and snow showers for Wednesday and early Thursday. You can see the areas the Ensembles show with some snowflakes:

The late week and weekend system shows up differently on all the models as we see several of them exhibiting their usual biases. The GFS is too flat and the European is holding too much energy back in the southwest. The Canadian ain’t having none of that:

I am certainly not ready to bite on anything like that, but, unlike any storm system in the past month, cold air will already be in place ahead of whatever develops.

Have a great day and take care.
