The final weekend of 2013 is wrapping up. A southern disturbance will head across Kentucky during the overnight hours. It will bring more widespread rain into the region. The better chances will remain in southern and eastern Kentucky. We'll all see rain, but in those areas it will be moderate and even heavy at times.
The rain should be moving out during the afternoon for Central Kentucky and during the evening for the Southeast. It's a good thing this big moisture supply is moving out because we have a dandy of a cold front coming our way. It has Arctic air written all over it. Folks in the Northern Plains will see wind chill readings of 25-40 BELOW ZERO! That's the same source region as the new airmass that's heading into Kentucky. While we won't be that cold... we'll have some pretty cold highs for a few days.
The Arctic front opens a door in the atmosphere. Basically, it will pave a path for disturbances to come rolling into Kentucky this week. That means we'll be right in the path of a few waves of energy this week. One of the more impressive ones will drive in here for Thursday. We'll be watching that one very closely!
