Halloween Update

Good evening and Happy Halloween. Ghosts and witches aren’t the only things flying through the air this evening as a few snowflakes are showing up across Kentucky. This comes on the heels of another massive rain event that put down nearly 4″ in some areas.

Let’s start with the impressive rainfall from the past 2 days…

October ends as one of the wettest Octobers on record for many cities across our region. That is absolutely ridiculous considering September was the driest month ever recorded. Extremes are the new normal.

Temps dropped more than 30 degrees during the day with snow showers and flurries showing up right on cue…

As the flakes fly out of town tonight, temps continue to crash into the 20s for lows. This could actually lead to a touch of black ice forming on roads. Wind chill readings may also drop into the upper teens at times.

November 1st looks to be a nice and cold day. Highs are only in the 40s as skies become partly sunny. That sets the stage for a cold Friday evening for high school football action across the state.

Our next cold front drops in here on Saturday and may touch off a rain or snow shower in the north…

That reinforces our cold air into Sunday, with another front arriving on the scene at some point Election Day. The front coming in behind that has even colder air to work with and the forecast models are not handling it very well at all. You’re seeing run to run changes and that’s to be expected with such an anomalous pattern.

We will need to watch for a wave of low pressure to develop along the arctic boundary as it arrives by Thursday and Friday…
