We're at the top of the hill on a weather rollercoaster, find out about the big dip heading our way in tonight's weather blog.

 Can we just see a month of the weather we had today across Southern and Eastern Kentucky?  It was in a word, fabulous.  Plenty of sunshine and mild temperatures topping out in the mid to upper 60s.  You can't really ask for anything better after the winter we've had.  However mentioning winter, even though it's over... winter weather is not done with us just yet.

A strong cold front is set to enter Kentucky late Saturday into Sunday.  With it we will see some rain showers and much cooler temperatures.  Highs Saturday will top out in the lower 60s, Sunday you can expect mid 40s with scattered showers.

Then things get downright nasty next week.  More cold air dives in from Canada and it knocks those readings into the 20s for lows and upper 30s and lower 40s for highs.  Chances of a wintry mix are looking pretty good on Tuesday.

Please don't shoot the messenger, I'm just as tired of it as you are.  The good news is this cool down isn't going to last very long.  We should head back to the 60s by the end of next week.
 

In fact the 7-Day forecast is a little warmer than what the GFS is showing because some of the other models are a bit warmer.  Check it out:

Keep thinking warm, spring like thoughts!  Maybe enough positive thinking will force the snow away for good.
