Good evening, folks. The showers are moving away and we have better weather rolling in for the weekend. Unfortunately, the nice doesn’t last very long as a bigger system targets us early next week. That one will bring a lot of different weather, unlocking a very wintry pattern.
The showers are exiting the eastern part of the state, but I can’t rule out a touch of drizzle this evening…
The weather this weekend looks much better. Highs on Saturday range from the mid 40s north to the mid 50s south and west. That’s assuming clouds don’t hang around after a cold start to the day.
Clouds increase Sunday as southwest winds pick up ahead of our early week system. A few showers arrive by Sunday evening with the majority of the rain moving in for Monday. Temps spike to around 60 along and just ahead of this, then drop like a rock as it goes through. That’s then temps go below freezing.
A wave of low pressure will develop along this front, but the question is where will the front be when this happens? The operational models suggest this brings snow to parts of central and, especially, eastern Kentucky. Here’s the GFS…
Is this one of the times we watch for the infamous northwest trend in the models as we get closer? That’s certainly a possibility and one that may show itself with the overnight into Saturday model runs.
One thing is for sure… It’s frigid behind that! There’s also likely to be another major storm system to track by next weekend.
I’ll see you guys later tonight. Until then, make it a good one and take care.
