Thursday Evening Update

Good evening, folks. It’s cold and it’s about turn turn frigid overnight and into Friday as arctic air moves in from the northwest. This may also bring some flakes into the region, but the focus is on some better weather moving in for the weekend.

Temps drop through the 20s this evening and wind up in the teens by Friday morning. Wind chills will reach the single digits, too.

This northwest wind with arctic air is usually a snow shower and flurry maker. That looks to be the case across areas of central and, especially, eastern Kentucky. A light coating is possible in a few spots. Here’s regional radar to follow the flakes…

Highs for Friday will range from the upper 20s to middle 30s as skies become partly sunny. This mix of sun and clouds continues into the weekend. Saturday starts absolutely frigid, but ends on a nice note with temps in the mid 40s to low 50s.

Sunday looks even milder with temps reaching the 50s across the entire area.

Our next system moves our way by Tuesday and will have a surge of milder air ahead of it. 60s are possible…

A cold front then moves in by Tuesday night and will bring widespread showers and a few storms. Winds look very gusty as cold air crashes in behind it.

Can this setup produce some winter weather around here? It’s one that actually bears watching as the front could check up and allow for winter weather makers to roll along it. That’s something the European is hinting at, but has the action to our south and southeast…

That’s something to follow in the coming days.

Make it a great evening and take care.

A Brief Shot Of Cold and Snow Showers

Good afternoon, everyone. We have a small taste of arctic air pushing into the region as flooding continues across several areas of Kentucky. Rolling into the weekend, our weather looks MUCH better, but that changes in a hurry by early next week. Ugh.

Let’s begin with the flooding. Several roads are closed at different points across the state. We’ve had several mudslides, with one even leading to a train derailment in Pike County. Flooding along our rivers will be an issue for days to come as all the high water slowly flows downstream. Here are your current Flood Warnings…

Colder air continues to filter in with a modified arctic front sliding in this afternoon. That leads to even colder air for tonight through Saturday morning. It may also spit out a snow shower or some flurries by evening…

Lows tonight drop deep into the teens for many…

Single digit wind chills will also be noted for some…

Temps behind this will climb into the 50s by Sunday as we wrap up a dry weekend. That changes by Monday as a cold front drops into the region. Showers and a few thunderstorms increase along the front before another blast of cold comes in behind it…

We will see if some shots of winter weather can accompany the pattern behind that!

Enjoy the day and take care.

Flooding Starts A Colder Day

Good Thursday, everyone. Torrential rains will pull away from the region early this morning, but the  high water issues will remain for a while. As the rain moves our, a quick-hitting shot of arctic air pushes in for the next few days. This takes us into a much needed dry period for the weekend.

Flood Warnings are out for several areas of the state to start out Thursday. Here’s a look at the current warnings…

Here are your radars to track the early day action…

Colder winds are blowing across the region today with an arctic front arriving by late this afternoon. That may have a rain or snow shower alone it, with the cold air surging in behind it. Temps by Friday morning drop into the teens with a few wind chills in the single digits. Highs on Friday range from the upper 20s to the middle 30s, depending on where you are.

After another morning in the teens, Saturday turns much better with a mostly sunny sky showing up. Temps hit 50 in the west and into the 40s for the rest of the state.

Sunday looks like a great day with highs in the 50s and a mostly dry sky.

Temps come up for Monday and Tuesday as we await another cold front dropping in. Showers and a few storms will be along and ahead of the front. As it passes, there’s a pretty cold looking pattern settling in. Can it bring some winter weather? We will need to watch for a few southern systems later next week…

I will have updates later today. Make it a good one and take care.
