Wednesday Afternoon Update

Good afternoon, everyone. It’s a quiet day in the bluegrass state and that quiet weather will continue into Thursday. After that, things start to change with a weak system on Friday then a bigger system early next week. That one looks to unleash a blast of arctic air.

The Friday system looks a little wetter the closer we get. Chilly showers move east across the state…

Overall, Friday looks pretty ugly.

After a chilly, but nice Saturday, clouds roll in on Sunday ahead of the system for early next week. This will bring a few showers in here by evening, with heavy rain and gusty winds on Monday. A storm system works across the region early Tuesday and it’s being pushed by arctic air. As the arctic air works in, a period of snow will be possible…

That’s also a big time wind maker as the cold air crashes in. The GFS has our temps going from near 60 Monday evening, to the 20s by Tuesday afternoon then to around 10 by Wednesday morning…

Those wind chills may be brutal…

I will have the latest on WKYT starting at 4pm and then again on KWC this evening. Make it a good one and take care.

    Seems we are in the same ole rinse and repeat pattern of the last several years…..
    2-3 days of rain followed by back side flurries
    temperature crash for 2-3 days
    warm up with dry conditions for 1-3 days……
    and start over

      You got that right. Starting our fourth year in a row of that exact pattern. Maybe it is the new norm? To be expected.

        Next week looks dreadful with a heavy rain event and tiny bit of snow. Our best luck would be to get a carbon copy of what happened Veteran’s Day night with the cold air strong enough to “catch” the rain at the end of the front. I did get 1 inch in November from that arctic front and this looks similar except a much stronger low system. Hopefully, may need a miracle, something better tries to come late next weekend but still looks mostly green and wet on the models this far out:(

        Yes, but you have to admit: these temperature craahes are HUGE!!! A zero degree wind chill factor for THIS area, in early to mid-December?!!? Yikes that is an extreme!
