Good evening, folks. It’s cold and it’s about turn turn frigid overnight and into Friday as arctic air moves in from the northwest. This may also bring some flakes into the region, but the focus is on some better weather moving in for the weekend.

Temps drop through the 20s this evening and wind up in the teens by Friday morning. Wind chills will reach the single digits, too.

This northwest wind with arctic air is usually a snow shower and flurry maker. That looks to be the case across areas of central and, especially, eastern Kentucky. A light coating is possible in a few spots. Here’s regional radar to follow the flakes…

Highs for Friday will range from the upper 20s to middle 30s as skies become partly sunny. This mix of sun and clouds continues into the weekend. Saturday starts absolutely frigid, but ends on a nice note with temps in the mid 40s to low 50s.

Sunday looks even milder with temps reaching the 50s across the entire area.

Our next system moves our way by Tuesday and will have a surge of milder air ahead of it. 60s are possible…

A cold front then moves in by Tuesday night and will bring widespread showers and a few storms. Winds look very gusty as cold air crashes in behind it.

Can this setup produce some winter weather around here? It’s one that actually bears watching as the front could check up and allow for winter weather makers to roll along it. That’s something the European is hinting at, but has the action to our south and southeast…

That’s something to follow in the coming days.

Make it a great evening and take care.
