A busy Thanksgiving week ahead

Good Sunday, everyone. It’s chilly and blustery day across central and eastern Kentucky, but the focus is on the week ahead. Our big Thanksgiving week looks like a busy one with several systems set to impact our weather.

Let me begin with today and roll forward. A rain or snow shower may be noted early this morning across the southeast, but most areas hang with a mix of sun and clouds. Temps will hit the 40s, but a gusty wind will make it feel colder. Here’s regional radar to track anything that’s leftover:

Our next storm system continues to look potent in the plains on Tuesday then into the Great Lakes on Wednesday. That means a strong cold front moves sweeps across Kentucky, bringing showers and thunderstorms rolling across the state. This also looks like a big time wind maker around here too.

It will then be followed by a weaker setup that tries to throw a little precip in here late Wednesday into Thanksgiving. You can see both of those on the GFS:

As we get deeper into Thanksgiving weekend, we find another big storm system targeting our region. This one will bring the potential for high winds and strong storms ahead of it, and a big temp crash and some snow behind it. This unleashes a cold pattern to start December:

The CFS seasonal model is seeing the arctic shots in December. Look at these weekly average temp departures:

Let’s skip ahead to the middle of the month:

Have a great day and take care.
