A chilly and pleasant weekend ahead

Good Friday to one and all. Our weekend is kicking off on a calm and chilly note and that looks to continue into the coming weekend. Once into next week, the pattern starts to turn busy with several systems targeting our part of the world.

Temperatures today are in the 20s to start and upper 30s to low 40s to end. A mix of sun and clouds will be possible. The forecast for Saturday looks pretty much the same.

Clouds will increase as winds gust up on Sunday. Temps will be closer to the 50 degree mark for much of central and eastern Kentucky.

The setup for early next week remains the same as a storm moves up the east coast with a few weaker systems diving in here from the northwest. Those may be able to spit out a touch of rain and snow in our neck of the woods. Here’s the European Model:

What comes after this has the potential to become a bigger storm system by late next week into the following weekend. The Euro is showing one system working through, bringing some colder air behind it and then has a slow moving cutoff with winter weather:

It’s interesting to note how the GFS is very similar to that:

The models will continue to flip around a lot in the coming days because there is just so much energy to throw the models for a loop.

As we start to look toward Thanksgiving week, the Ensembles keep us colder than normal:

Make it a great day and take care.
