Check Out This Temp Drop

Good evening, gang. Our powerhouse of a plains storm system continues to increase and it’s going to drag a powerhouse of a cold front into the state on Friday. For a week now, we’ve been talking about a 30 degree temp drop in just a few hours and it’s just about here.

This front means an increase in winds and will also carry a line of showers and storms with it as it rolls in from the west. Much of this action will decrease in intensity the farther east it gets, but it’s the temp drop taking center stage.

Check this out…

5pm Friday

11pm Friday

8am Saturday

5pm Saturday

8am Sunday

Numbers like that would obviously bring a frost threat to much of the region. Green Thumbs are officially on watch.

Nice weather comes in behind this for Sunday and Monday as highs return to the 60s with a mix of sun and clouds. That doesn’t last long as another system works through here with chilly showers for Tuesday and Wednesday as another deep trough digs through here.

I leave you with your radars to track the action to our west. Take the interactive radar on a little test drive out to the plains snowstorm and check it out…

Enjoy the evening and take care.

Big Changes Blow In Late Friday

Good Thursday, everyone. A powerful winter storm is blowing up across the Rockies and northern plains and this will drag a cold front across Kentucky on Friday. This will bring the coldest air of the young fall season into town and it could produce a little frost.

Temps out there today should hit the 70s in most areas with a mix of sun and clouds. If clouds are stubborn, then a repeat of what happened on Wednesday is possible.

Exact timing of the Friday cold front is still a bit in flux, but the boundary should enter western Kentucky during the afternoon then sweep eastward through Friday night. A line of showers and storm will accompany this system as winds gust to 30mph or so. This isn’t a lot of rain, but it adds to our already much above October…

This may very well impact some high school football games, especially across western and central Kentucky.

We’ve covered the major temp drop along and behind this front, but it’s still pretty awesome to watch play out…

Readings will likely drop into the 30s for Saturday and Sunday mornings for many areas. Frost will be possible Saturday night if the winds die down. The above run of the NAM is way down there for Sunday morning.

An even deeper trough then digs into the eastern half of the country for much of next week. This should have a potent storm system with it and it takes on an almost winter look …

I’ll  update things later today. Have a great day and take care.
