Good Friday, folks. We’ve made it to the end of the week and our weather pattern is getting a little active. We have three different systems working into the region between now and Monday. These will bring quite the spread in weather with all modes of precipitation possible at one time or another across the region.
A touch of freezing rain is possible early this morning across the colder valleys of eastern Kentucky. It doesn’t take much of a glaze to cause slick travel, so keep that in mind this morning.
Temps will rise as the day wears on with showers giving way to steady rains across central and eastern Kentucky later this afternoon into the evening. That will continue into tonight as low pressure wraps up just to our east. There’s the chance for a period of wet snow to develop across areas of central and eastern Kentucky by early Saturday. The NAM keeps seeing a little something…
The next system finds the GFS coming south with this system and becoming weaker. This run certainly makes more sense…
The air behind this is showing up colder and colder, especially on the GFS. Check out the lows by Wednesday…
We will see how all this plays out, but we are still likely to see a system with all modes of precipitation Sunday into Monday. The best threat for accumulating snow appears to be across the northern half of the state, particularly along and north of the Interstate 64 corridor.
I will have updates later today. For now, I have you set with some early day weather trackers…

Enjoy your day and take care.
