Good Sunday everyone. Our wet pattern rolls on with additional rounds of showers and thunderstorms on the way. We have a lot more water to go through before we get to some winter later Monday and Tuesday. A 20-30 degree temp drop will buffer the two.
A stalled out front lifts back to the north today as low pressure works across the Ohio Valley. Showers and thunderstorms will be on and off all day long and locally heavy rain is a good bet. Temps today will soar into the low 60s for many areas.
A strong cold front works eastward later tonight and early Monday. A wave of low pressure will be working along this front and that means we start the day with more heavy rain. An additional 1″-2″ of rain is likely today through Monday for many areas of the state.
Much colder air works in quickly behind the front as temps fall into the 30s. Rain will mix with and change to a period of light snow in the west early and that transition will work eastward throughout the day. Here’s the GFS take on it…
One trend in the models of late is to keep the chance for some flakes flying into Tuesday across central and eastern Kentucky.
From a snow perspective, this is not a very big deal. There is the chance we can squeeze out a light accumulation on grassy and elevated surfaces out of all this. The chance isn’t very high, but here’s a set of maps showing the possibility…
Monday and Monday Evening
Monday Night and Tuesday Morning
I’m not sold on very much at all sticking, but we shall see.
Our transition week into winter is off and running and behaving according to plan. Some monster storms are on the table for the central and eastern sections of the country from next weekend through Christmas. I will touch on that part of the equation later today.
Make it a great Sunday and take care.
