Happy Thanksgiving Weather

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone. Let me start this out by saying how thankful I am for everything you’ve done for me and this site over the years. I appreciate all of you… even the haters. 🙂 Ok… let’s get to the weather portion of the program.

Lots of clouds will be noted on this Thanksgiving, with a few rays of sun possible this afternoon. We can also see a shower or two around the central and eastern parts of the state…

A weak cold front drops in here late on Black Friday. This will keep clouds around and may set up a nice temperature gradient from north to south. A seasonal chill will then be in the air into Saturday with the potential for low clouds keeping areas of central and eastern Kentucky very chilly with highs from 40-45 for some.

A major storm system will impact our region Monday into Tuesday. High winds, heavy rain and strong thunderstorms will all be possible. To get an idea of how far reaching this storm system is, watch it pick up a small disturbance near Key West and pull it all the way into our region…


That’s a very impressive setup and one for us to keep a close eye on in the coming days.

Once that swings through here, much colder air settles in across the country as we close November and say hello to December…


We have to watch for another system trying to come underneath that at some point by the middle and end of next week. This is when the European Model goes coast to coast with the seasonal cold…


The potential for a very cold December is there for much of the country. Look at the WeatherBell CFS 5 day chunks of temperature anomalies. Keep in mind, these are in Celsius…


You can actually see the GFS trying to unleash that at the end of its latest run…


I will try to update things later today, but won’t make any promises.

Once again, I hope each of you have a wonderful Thanksgiving. Stay safe and take care.
