Wednesday Afternoon Talkers

Good afternoon, everyone. It’s a dreary day across the bluegrass state as we look ahead toward a much bigger system for the weekend. That one looks to bring the potential for more high winds, precipitation and a big temp crash as arctic air comes in behind it.

Today’s dreary weather means low clouds and a few showers continuing…

Temps are mild, but those numbers drop tonight as a cold front blows through here. That brings a seasonal brand of chill for Thursday.

Our weekend system is much stronger and brings a smaller version of last weekend. Cold air is in place on Friday as precipitation moves in. There’s the chance for a little frozen precipitation on the leading edge of this before temps climb and it quickly goes over to showers. Showers and a few storms will be with us into Saturday as temps spike, then drop crash behind the front. That could lead to a few flakes…

Winds are going to become an issue again with gusts that may be greater than 50mph at times on Saturday…

Watch how fast the cold air crashes in here and look at how cold Sunday is…

This will set the stage for lows close to 10 by Monday and Tuesday. Wind chills during this time are frigid…

Have a great day and take care.

    Bubba mentioned bengals in last comments…this cold spell will be like the 2 wins the bengals won this year! Who cares, wow, I’m not impressed, it’s not going to stick around,announcer will get excited for the small victory….tbh I would get excited too, but I don’t see or hear anything about snow!

    • Schroeder says:

      No snow here because we have an established Jet Stream to our west and lifting out towards Lake Superior. That area up there has had a very cold and snowy winter. Temperatures just above the lake are in the minus twenties.

    I’m glad for the cold temps to get back in here. The stink bugs are wanting to take over again. LOL

    • Schroeder says:

      I don’t have stink bugs, I have something worse and cannot be controlled the Asia Lady Beetles that are hibernating in my home and causing my asthma problem. I already been to the Emergency Room twice because of this. Thanks USDA for doing nothing about this problem that is making people miserable in rural Kentucky. I have to keep my home at sixty two degrees to keep the bugs at bay. Frigid weather will not kill these bugs.

    A few days of winter and right back to above average highs. Last year it was at least seasonable in January with 18 days of average or below average highs where I live. We have had one day so far this year and it was only one degree below normal. If the models hold true we might end up with eight days below normal this January with only three of them dropping to 30s for the high. Last year we had seven January days in the 30s and three in the 20s for highs. Mild for this year is an understatement.

    • Jimbo says:

      This is true and the normal days next week will be dry. The warm air and rain will return next Thursday or Friday.

    • Terry says:

      Super mild. Likely a top 10, maybe 5, meteorological warm winter UNLESS February breaks the mode and ends up colder than average.

    If there was any chance of decent snow next week, Mr Bailey would be talking about it 🙁 Rodger in Dodger

    • Terry says:

      🙁

      It is bad. At least not as wet as prior model advertisement for January. But….no precip with the few cold days either

  5. Tom N Lincoln says:

    We’re gonna have cold air next week but no moisture around. I’ve seen this movie before. It’s like Groundhog Day.

  6. Terry says:

    MJO is trying to make it to phase 7 but already forecast to go back to 4 and 5 by beginning of February….you know what that would mean for February if it happens: Super warm/wet….Blah 🙁

    Will this be the third February consecutive for a foot of rain Harlan? Hopefully not.

    FEBRUARY 2018: 12.24 in

    FEBRUARY 2019: 12.83 in.

    Insane, but thankfully, we are less wet than last year at this time, regardless of what February 2020 brings.

    TennMark has some lightning returns moving close to Nashville’s NW. This may hit me later, if it holds together along the front.
