Friday Afternoon Update

Good afternoon, everyone. We have rain pressing into the state through the rest of your day, but the focus is on a pretty wild setup for later Saturday into Saturday night. This is courtesy of a strong cold front dropping into the state from the northwest.

That front slams in here late Saturday afternoon and evening and will have VERY gusty winds ahead of it and behind it. Gusts may exceed 40mph at times…

Temps crash from the upper 50s and low 60s during the afternoon into the upper 30s by late evening. A strong northwesterly wind flow kicks in behind the front and that may spit out some sprinkles or snow flurries across the Ohio Valley and Appalachian Mountains Saturday night. While the best chance is to our north and east, I can’t rule out a few flakes wandering into the eastern half of the state. The HI Res NAM shows this…

The West Virginia Mountains could do very well in this type of flow.

Temperatures by Sunday morning will drop into the upper 20s to near 30 for much of the state…

That’s going to be a healthy freeze. Wind chills may reach the low 20s at times. Yowza!

Rain continues to roll across the region from west to east this evening. Here’s your interactive radar to track it all…

I will have the latest on WKYT-TV starting at 4pm. Make it a  good rest of your Friday and take care.
