Good evening, folks. Clouds continue to thicken as a cold front rolls into the region from the northwest. This brings rain to kick off the Thanksgiving week, with a few flakes likely to fly right behind this front. This continues to be part of an overall pattern that is STRONGLY skewing colder.
I have a lot to talk about, so let’s get busy!
A shower or two will try to show up this evening in the north and west. Here’s your regional radar to find the drops…
A chilly rain then moves in overnight and Monday as our front enters the state. Monday just looks like a damp and dreary day across our region.
Colder northwest winds then kick in behind this for Tuesday. Northwesterly winds in the wintertime tend to produce clouds and light precipitation across our region. That light precipitation may very well be in the form of flurries and light snow showers.
The models are even trying to spit out a rooftop coating in a few spots…
Hi Res NAM
Highs on Tuesday stay in the 30s, but a wind chill may stay in the 20s for many.
Wednesday looks good for travelers as temps bounce back into the upper 40s to low 50s. A big blast of arctic air heads toward the northeastern part of the country late Wednesday into Thanksgiving Day. This will make for an absolutely frigid Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade in NYC. For us, we get a glancing blow of the cold.
Highs on Thanksgiving Day may struggle to 40 in the northeastern Ky to the 50s west…
Clouds will quickly increase on Friday as rain rolls in late in the day. That’s from a storm system moving in, bringing another soaker into Saturday…
The nest system coming behind that later Monday and Tuesday is likely to unleash more winter weather behind it…
It’s a loaded winter pattern for the end of November into December. Buckle up, kiddos.
Enjoy the rest of your day and take care.
