Updating The Ugly Days Ahead

Good evening, gang. Some very ugly weather is on the way in the coming days as a couple of systems target the bluegrass state. Overall, I have no changes in the upcoming pattern.

As you know, our late week system is partially coming from the remnants of a Pacific Hurricane. Clouds are already streaming out ahead of this and into our region. Those clouds will continue to thicken up on Thursday with rain arriving late evening into the overnight.  Rain then carries us through Friday night…

 That setup would be a major snowstorm around here in the winter months, but it’s only October and that means some pretty good rains…

Temps on Friday are very chilly and likely stay in the 40s for much of the region.

Leftover showers linger into Saturday with a mix of sun and clouds trying to take over into the afternoon. Temps are still chilly with upper 40s to mid 50s across the Commonwealth.

The next system looks just as ugly as it moves in from the northwest for Sunday and Monday. I like how the Canadian is handling this system and the nor’easter in front of it…

Temps look even colder during this time. Once again, if you see this setup later in November, it’s bringing snow to us.

The stage is set for another huge amplification of the jet stream late next week into the following weekend…

That one could bring some interesting weather to our part of the world. Hmmm

Enjoy the rest of your day and take care.

Some Ugly Weather On The Way

Good Wednesday, folks. It’s another gorgeous, albeit chillier, weather day taking shape across the bluegrass state. This stuff is about to be replaced by some ugly weather as a couple of systems roll across the state late this week through the upcoming weekend and into early next week.

Temps out there today will generally be in the low and middle 50s for highs as skies stay very nice. A few high clouds will move in this afternoon and those are streaming well ahead of our big storm system for the end of the week.

The remnants of a Pacific hurricane are crossing Mexico and will move into Texas later tonight. From there, this storm comes together and moves through the deep south. From there, the storm turns the corner and up the east coast on Friday. That puts Kentucky in the windy and chilly sector of the storm, with plenty of rain.

The NAM shows this massive system very well…

Gusty winds and chilly temps will accompany the rains. Highs on Friday may stay in the 40s…

Once that system moves to our northeast, another potent system dives in from the northwest and keeps rounds of chilly showers cranking this weekend into early next week…

That’s some ugly weather for our part of the world, but that’s to be expected with such a major amplification of the jet stream…

I will hook you up with another update or two later today. Make it a good one and take care.
