Thursday Evening Update

Good evening, everyone. It’s a nice looking day wrapping up out there and things get much better for Friday. That’s not going to be the case as we head into the weekend. That’s when we get into a very wet setup that can lead to some local high water issues.

Let’s make sure to enjoy our Friday. Highs will hit the mid and upper 50s for many, with a 60 degree reading showing up in the south and west. Clouds will increase, but I can’t complain about some clouds if it’s gonna be that mild on a Friday. 🙂

Rain arrives Friday night into early Saturday and it appears to come at us in waves. The greatest concentration of rain falls in the south and east. This is where we may see some local high water issues develop.

My threat map…

The NAM rainfall numbers go through early Sunday evening and show some 4″ amounts in the southeast…

The GFS numbers through Monday are also picking up on those totals…

Some frozen precipitation may then show up across western Kentucky at some point late Saturday night into Sunday. The NAM shows some freezing rain accumulation…

The GFS is also seeing that, then adding some in the north Sunday night and Monday…

Enjoy your evening and take care.

Ugly Weather For The Weekend

Good Thursday, gang. We have some nice weather moving into the Commonwealth today and will take us through Friday. Let’s make sure to enjoy that, because another storm system is on the way for the weekend. That may bring additional hefty rain totals our way

Our day may start with some early morning flakes across central and eastern Kentucky, but should end on a brighter note. Temps will hit the upper 30s and low 40s with a mix of sun and clouds.

Friday looks even better with highs deep into the 50s, with the potential for a 60. Skies will stay partly cloudy with a gusty southwesterly wind kicking in. This is ahead of our weekend system, arriving from the southwest late Friday night.

Rain will arrive and kick into high gear for Saturday. Locally heavy downpours are possible across the south and east. The NAM only goes through Saturday night, but is showing a general 1″-2.5″…

If we expand the time period to go through Sunday, we see the Canadian Model with some 3″ amounts showing up…

Another flood threat may be with us this weekend!

The Canadian shows a very active setup through next week, with additional systems lining up. You will also notice the potential for some mix late Sunday, with a better winter chance later next week…

Check out the freezing rain setup on that run from Sunday through early next week…

I will hook you up with another update later today, so check back. Make it a good one and take care.
