Watching A Late Week Cold Front

Good Tuesday, folks. We have some really nice fall weather around for the next few days, but the focus is on the weekend and a strong cold front. That front looks to bring our first true frost threat to much of the region. That will get your fall weather juices flowing! πŸ™‚

As usual, we start with what’s going on out there today. Temps are very chilly to start the day with a few upper 30s possible for areas getting clear skies. Highs this afternoon are mainly in the 60s with a mix of sun and clouds. Those clouds in the east may still contain a few showers. If those are there, they will show up on your regional radar…

The weather for Wednesday and Thursday looks pretty darn nice, but some clouds get into the mix as our winds gust up. I can’t totally rule out an isolated shower going up. Temps are well into the 70s.

A major plains storm system is developing and will roll toward the upper midwest by Friday. That system will have a major snowstorm along and to the west of the track, putting a smackdown on many areas. This storm drags a cold front quickly across Kentucky on Friday. The timing on this is still in flux, but it should bring a line of showers and storms across the state…

Winds look VERY gusty with this setup as temperatures crash from west to east. This could set the stage for a kiss of frost for the weekend. Watch this temp drop…

As all of this is happening, a super typhoon is recurving in the western Pacific…

Regular readers know this can often be a precursor to a deepening trough across the eastern part of the United States. The models are sniffing this out more and more for next week. You can see this on the GFS Ensembles…

I may throw another update at you later today. Make it a good one and take care.

    Thanks Chris, interesting blog this morning. Forty nine degrees here in my backyard with lots of fog and clouds. Have a great day everyone.

    I do not recall any measurable rainfall near LaGrange in Oldham county since midnight. Are you telling me the fog was so thick, that the Mesonet site received 0.02″ of fog?

    I can’t help but notice the immediate ceasing of all “Climate Change” garbage after the front came through and it cooled off and rained.

      And all the gibberish about Chris ignoring drought, hyping storms, and being a threatening meanie. πŸ˜‰

      As I have said…..you are the one who speaks of climate change on EVERY comment you make Virgil……seems you love talking about the “garbage” (as you call it) more than anyone else here. πŸ™‚ πŸ˜‰
