Rain Chances & A Much Colder Airmass

Just in time for the month that officially kicks off Winter... the temps are going to take a hit! The cold air will begin slipping into the region by Thursday.

The temps have been fairly nice here the last couple of days. The real issue has been where we end up at during the overnight hours. Beginning Thursday it won't make any difference... both highs and lows will be rather cold out there. Before that happens we'll have one more day with highs in the 40s to around 50. So enjoy your Wednesday because you will be longing for the 40 degree chills very soon.

It will be a wet and windy Wednesday for the folks across Kentucky. You'll notice that the wind may be gusty at times throughout our region. It looks the wet weather will roll in here early on Wednesday morning. The cloud cover associated with this system arrived here on Tuesday. Now the leading edge of the rainfall will come creeping into Kentucky on just before sunrise.

(I shrunk the images even more so I could fit three wide...lol)

The WRF & Canadian are much closer with where the low is at by Wednesday morning. The GFS is still off on its own path. Which isn't out of the ordinary. This is usually quite common for it to take a more south & easterly track. You just have to know when to manipulate. All three have those first showers entering the area very early in the morning.

They mostly agree that we will be wet all day on Wednesday. It's the timing of the tail end of this system that really comes to odds.

The WRF doesn't keep the moisture flowing on Thursday morning unlike the GFS and the Canadian. I think we could see some of the upslope snow shower activity. This won't be a widespread event. I am keeping those chances alive in my forecast for the early parts of your Thursday.

Another system has the potential to give us a few flakes on Saturday. Then again it could miss us completely! Right now I am watchinf to see how close it will be. At this point I am keeping the 20% of flakes alive here.

Remember to bundle up these next few days. Overnight lows in the 20s and highs only in the 30s.

C-Ya Bye
