A cold May pattern setting up

Good Tuesday, everyone. We continue to track showers across the region, but it’s a much colder pattern getting our attention. Record lows and the potential for frost and freezing conditions are possible late this week into the weekend.

Let’s begin with today and roll forward. A system is bringing more rain and rumbles of thunder to us. This action becomes more scattered as the day wears on. Here are your radars to track the rain and thunder:

Temps today range from the 50s north to the 70s in the south.
Chilly temps take control tonight into Wednesday as skies clean up a bit. There’s still a slight chance for a stray shower on Wednesday as highs stay in the 50s. Wednesday night into Thursday morning will bring the first chance for frost across central and eastern Kentucky. Lows look to drop deep into the 30s:

Thursday looks ok with temps in the upper 50s and low 60s with a late day increase in clouds. Those clouds are ahead of a very ugly looking system for Friday. This rolls in with chilly rain and unleashes cold air for the weekend, with some snow showers flying not to far from us:

Saturday will find a drying sky from west to east, but my goodness it’s cold for this time of year. The day may start out in the upper 20s and low 30s:

This could be historic cold, folks. Highs on Saturday struggle into the low and middle 50s with gusty winds making it feel colder.

Sunday morning may also see temps drop back into the upper 20s and low 30s across central and eastern Kentucky.

The next system zipping in here by Sunday night and Monday should bring more chilly showers with it:

That keeps temps below normal into the first half of next week, but it shouldn’t be nearly as cold as the weekend. I’m finally seeing good news on the ensembles as they are trending warm late next week into the following week:

Have a great day and take care.
