Thursday Midday Thoughts

Good Thursday, everyone. Rain continues to soak the bluegrass state as our temps are just starting to crash from northwest to southeast. That crash may cause the rain to end with a few flakes for some, then we focus on the looming arctic shot and snow potential early next week.

The rain ends as the day wears on as temps crash from northwest to southeast. That crash means a few flakes will be possible, especially in the north. Once the main precipitation shield pushes east, a few snowflakes may show up across the southeast later this evening.

Here are your tracking tools…

Temps tonight drop into the low and middle 20s for many. If skies totally clear, a few of the colder locations may dip into the upper teens. Wind chills will be in the teens to begin Friday. Highs won’t get out of the 30s for many, even with a little sun.

Saturday starts in the 20s with highs in the 40s for much of the state. Can we squeeze out an early morning flurry? Meh, maybe.

Sunday looks like the “mildest” day as readings surge well into the 50s ahead of our arctic front arriving on Monday.

The Canadian continues to see this well..

So does the ICON…

The GFS is back to being the GFS with the progressive bias…

As a friendly reminder, the several days ago the GFS had zero precipitation in our region for today because of this same progressive bias.

I will have the latest on WKYT starting at 4pm then with another KWC update this evening. Until then, make it a good one and take care.

    Will black ice be an issue tonight with all the rain and temps dropping into the 20s for some? Just curious, as CB hasn’t mentioned it.

    I need some help — What does “progressive bias” mean? I hear it a lot…

    Looking at the radar just before 12:30 PM CST, I noticed that there was rain occurring over virtually the entire state of Kentucky.

    Here in the SW suburbs of Chicago, despite sunny skies, it’s only in the low 30s, some 20 degrees below normal, with a gusty NW wind putting the wind chill near 20.

    As you usual the precipitation ended before the cold air could catch up. If one is hoping to see wintry precip do not bet on the cold air catching the precipitation we never fair well in that scenario and very rarely ever happens.

      You nailed it Prelude. There were a few flakes on radar close to where I live in Southern Ohio but I never saw any.
