Tuesday Evening Update

Good evening, everyone. As we wrap up a cold and damp November day across the region, we look ahead to a seasonal brand of chill taking over the pattern for the rest of the week. Beyond that, things try to turn interesting before we get to Thanksgiving.

We are still dealing with some leftover showers this evening and those will continue through the night across the south and southeast. Temps are in the low 40s for many and will head into the mid and upper 30s tonight…

Wednesday will see clouds lingering in the south and southeast, with some breaks elsewhere. Temps stay in the mid 40s for areas keeping the clouds and flirt with 50 for areas getting some sun.

Thursday will find another cold front dropping in from the north, but it won’t have precipitation with it. Winds are going to be very gusty as we get in on a decent cold shot for Friday.  Check out the Friday numbers from the NAM…

That’s actually pretty impressive considering we shouldn’t have much in the way of clouds. Wind chills Friday morning may be deep in the teens…

Those same wind chills will show up Friday evening into Saturday morning when actual lows hit the low 20s in some of the colder valleys.

Saturday is windy with temps back in the 50-55 degree range as afternoon clouds increase. That’s ahead of another cold rain maker for Sunday…

The pattern I’m seeing taking shape continues to argue for winter weather as we head into Thanksgiving week. The GFS Ensembles continue to pick up on snow chances….

Speaking of a winter weather look, later tonight I’m going to show you one heck of a look on the longer range ensembles as we head into December.

Enjoy your evening and take care.

The Cold November Rain

Good Tuesday, folks. With all apologies to Guns N’ Roses, A cold November rain is falling on the bluegrass state today. That rain will slowly wind down this afternoon, as temps trend colder throughout the day. This keeps a seasonal brand of chill in place for the rest of the week.

Our day is starting with rounds of moderate to locally heavy rains pushing across the state. Some rumbles of thunder will be possible in the south. That’s also where the heaviest totals will likely fall, with some areas picking up a fresh inch or so of rain.

Temps this morning will range from the middle 40s north to middle 50s south. Those numbers will drop this afternoon, with most areas in the low and mid 40s.

Track away…

Leftover clouds will be around on Wednesday with the chance for a shower or two in the south and southeast. Temps will range from the mid 40s in the southeast to the low and mid 50s in the far west.

Winds increase on Thursday as another cold front moves in here from the north. This doesn’t have any moisture with it, but will pack quite the cold air punch. Lows by Friday morning are in the 20s with afternoon highs from 40-45 degrees. That will set the stage for a cold night at high school playoff games with some areas hitting freezing by 7pm…

Lows by Saturday morning may drop deep into the 20s across central and eastern Kentucky…

Saturday is a VERY windy day with clouds on the increase ahead of another cold front. Gusty showers then move in Saturday night into Sunday…

As we look toward the days leading up to Thanksgiving, we find a pattern trying to load up with cold shots from western Canada and Alaska.. This is where some REALLY cold air is currently building up and the GFS Ensembles want to drain some of that into the states…

Maybe a cold turkey this year? Hmmm.

I will have another update later today, so check back. Make it a good one and take care.
