Good Tuesday to one and all. It’s about as cold as it can possibly get this time of year in the Bluegrass State. Temperature records might fall in many areas as a few snow flurries continue to fly.
The records for Lexington look like this:
Low: 12 (1959)
Lowest high: 24 (1903)
We have a chance to break both of those Tuesday, and that’s nothing short of incredible. As a matter of fact, Tuesday should be the coldest November day we’ve had since Nov. 30,1976. That year went on to produce a brutal winter across our part of the world.
Today’s tracking tools:
Wind chills might drop below zero Tuesday morning and hit single digits at times in the afternoon.
Another weak cold front will drop in from the northwest Wednesday night, and that might bring a band of light snow and flurries:
That takes us toward a mild thaw for the weekend as a big storm develops in the Plains and lifts to the north. This could be a big wind- and rainmaker in our region later in the weekend. The European Model then crushes the warm-up with colder air returning by Monday:
Colder-than-normal air returns for Thanksgiving week with this type of a setup:
If the European Model is correct with that setup, more wintry weather would be possible over the holiday weekend.
Have a great day and take care.
