Saturday Afternoon Update

Good afternoon, everyone. Clouds are slow to break across central and eastern Kentucky as colder than normal temps continue. From here, we track a parade of systems set to impact our weather over the next few weeks. The next system in the pipeline moves in on Sunday.

That is a light rain maker, with a period of light snow possible…

As we head into Christmas Day, the next system moves in from the west. It’s also fairly light, but may have a touch of light rain and light snow for some…

That takes us to the end of the week and a very strong storm system wrapping up to our west. Temps surge ahead of this on a strong southwesterly wind. As the storm moves toward the Great Lakes, it drags a cold front toward Kentucky. Widespread heavy rain and a few thunderstorms will be noted along and ahead of this front…

That’s followed up by much colder air pressing into the region as the active storm track continues. That leads with winter storms working across the country…

I will try to throw you an update this evening. Enjoy the rest of the day and take care.

    The stratus clouds finally broke in SE KY but the cirrus are already filling in ahead of tomorrow’s system. Going to have to make some mudmen instead of snowmen for at least next week or so.

    I don’t know who has been colder than normal, but Louisville, Lexington, and Jackson have all recorded their 11th consecutive day of above normal readings, including today, and all are above normal for the month.

      It looks like this same wet and warm pattern is going to roll right thru December into January. Also outside of that southern storm last week, most of the country looks snow starved except the Rockies and northern New England.

        I think it will be after the first week of January before the pattern really attempts snow and cold in our region as the NAO is going negative, but it takes a while before the effect of blocking is felt. Looks like a lot if cold rain and mixed precipitation for first week of January with maybe far western KY having the best chance for wet snow.
