LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - It has been a very warm run here lately. Even with another front making its way across Kentucky, mild temps will remain.
As a front begins to pass through the region today, you will find a few showers with it. Now with some forest fires popping up in some areas, one hopes to get a decent amount of rain. The problem here is that we don’t have a tremendous amount of rain available with this system. Gusty winds with this system might have the opposite impact. Those winds might give the flames a little help. It’s something worth watching.
Temperatures will drop in the early morning hours on Friday and stay down through the day. Most will see numbers approach the upper 40s to low 50s for highs. This puts us right around normal for the first day of December.
This isn’t a long lasting cold air outbreak. As a matter of fact, it all backs off for the weekend. It should be really nice for folks heading out and about. You’ll see highs return to the mid and upper 50s. Numbers like that will be with us through Monday.
A major pattern shift is looking more and more likely for next week. A blast of Arctic air will begin to spill over into the eastern parts of the country. It will likely mean a big dip in our highs and lows. More importantly, it brings cold air back to Kentucky! There doesn’t appear to be any major snow events between now and then. However, with this kind of Arctic air intrusion, it makes it a little easier to see those events!
Have a great day!
