Good evening, gang. I wanted to drop by for a quickie of an update on the pattern as we roll into the coming weekend and beyond. In the overall scheme of things, I have no changes to the thoughts I’ve been throwing at ya for the past several days.
It’s another frosty night ahead of us, especially in central and eastern Kentucky. Some valleys may drop below freezing once again, bringing a light freeze.
Friday will see temps hit the 60-65 degree range on a gusty southwest wind ahead of our rain maker. Those rains roll into town by the evening and will carry us into Saturday morning. Skies dry for a bit behind that, but a cold front will drop in during the evening, bringing a few showers with it…
You can see a few snowflakes showing up just to our north and into the mountains of West Virginia and Virginia. Snowshoe could see a few inches of the white stuff.
Cold air crashes in here Saturday evening with temps in the upper 20s and low 30s by Sunday morning. Highs on Sunday may not get out of the upper 40s, even with mostly sunny skies.
Early next week looks really good, but I’m going to continue to hammer home the chance for a big system for the final week of October. Our major amplification of the jet stream may yield a biggie in the east…
Some interesting things can come from a setup like that. Stay tuned! 😉
Enjoy the evening and take care.
