Thanksgiving Eve Thoughts

Good evening, everyone. It’s a cold Thanksgiving Eve, but the overall pattern continues to look dry. This includes your turkey day forecast. From there, we track another cold front due in town this weekend, with a much more active pattern for next week.

Lows tonight will be deep into the 20s, with wind chill numbers knocking those down a few degrees. Thanksgiving Day looks great with 40s for many with a mix of sun and clouds.

Black Friday is windy with upper 20s to start and 50s coming in the afternoon.

A cold front zips in on Saturday, with the coldest air brushing our region into Sunday…

That gets pushed out of here quickly early next week, with another system working in by the middle of the week. This sets the stage for a much busier pattern takes shape…

There’s a ton going on with the atmosphere, with this active setup leading to early season fun and games. I will touch on that later tonight.

Make it a good one and take care.

Planes, Trains and Automobiles

Good Wednesday, everyone. The “Planes, Trains and Automobiles” post has become one of the great traditions here on Kentucky Weather Center. On this busiest travel day of the year, it’s the perfect time to pay tribute to one of my all time favorite movies. It’s a classic movie, and if you haven’t seen it, we can no longer be friends. 🙂

Here’s a little clip to get ya started…

Moving on to the actual weather part of the post…

We have colder than normal air out there today with temps in the upper 30s and low 40s for many, with colder wind chills.

Thanksgiving continues to look dry with 20s to start and 40s to end. A few clouds will be noted.

Black Friday is windy with upper 20s in the morning, and highs hitting the 50-55 degree range.

Another cold front arrives on Saturday with very gusty winds and another push of colder air behind it for Sunday…

That shot get’s shoved out of here quickly as we gear up for ANOTHER wild temperature ride by the middle of next week. That comes with a big storm system likely to impact our region.

Looking farther down the road, the new long range European Ensembles are in and they match the analog years and my thoughts on a front-loaded winter. Check out the colder than normal look through the first few days of January…

Snowfall from that same model for the same time period…

It’s interesting to note some of the new runs of the CFS are doing a turnaround and look very similar to the European for the exact same time…

That same model run for the 5 day period around Christmas is cold…

I will hook you up with updates later today, so check back. Safe travels and take care.
