Watching another active setup

Good Thursday, folks. It’s another pleasant day taking shape across central and eastern Kentucky, but our focus continues to be on a very busy looking pattern. Several systems move our way in the coming days, bringing a little bit of everything in terms of precipitation.

Let us begin with today and roll forward. Highs will be in the 40s as clouds increase. Winds won’t be as gusty as the past few days, but should still add a little extra chill.

The first system rolls in here on Friday and may have a touch of freezing rain on the leading edge of that, especially in the valleys. That would quickly change to plain old rain and continue through Friday night. A second system follows that up on Saturday and brings rain and a touch of snow with it.

Here’s how the NAM sees these two systems:

The GFS offers up something similar:

The storm coming behind this continues to look like a potential Ohio Valley winter storm. That could impact our region with all forms of precipitation.

The European Model is following the outline of what we talked about in an earlier post:

The GFS continues to be the lone wolf in strengthening this storm and working it all the way into the Great Lakes:

I’m not saying that can’t happen, but it’s the least likely solution to verify. Plus, it’s the GFS.

Make it a great Thursday and take care.
