Good Tuesday evening everyone. We have a massive weather change ahead of us on Thursday and this will likely bring a heck of a round of winter to the region. Buckle up for the ride.
Here’s a breakdown:
- Thursday starts with showers and thunderstorms and temps in the 50s.
- A cold front swings through here with temps dropping below freezing from west to east during the afternoon and early evening.
- Winds will gust to between 40mph and 50mph from late Thursday into early Friday.
- Snow showers ands squalls will become likely as northwesterly winds set up. The flow coming from Lake Michigan is likely to be a strong one and this should put down a light snowfall across central and eastern Kentucky. Here’s a look at the early odds…
- I really think much of the area will pick up light accumulating snows and this could be enough to cause some travel problems. Parts of eastern and southeastern Kentucky could pick up a couple of inches if the upslope flow plays out as expected.
- Temps Friday will have a tough time getting out of the 20s, but the wind chill will make it feel like single digits at times.
Please disregard the operational models for the Christmas week storm for they know not what they do. The Ensemble runs are much different and are certainly the way to go.
More on that and some even colder models for later this month and January coming tonight. Make it a great evening and take care.
