A wild ride in weather will be coming soon

It'll be a wild weather ride this week. Daytime highs will likely climb into the upper 50s and even some 60s by Wednesday. This all happens before a big frontal boundary comes calling. A few showers will be possible on Tuesday and Wednesday. The better rain chances won't arrive until we get into Thursday.

A slow moving frontal boundary will press into Kentucky on Thursday. The initial push of moisture will bring widespread rain. Some of that could be heavy at times. A few waves of energy will roll along the boundary and enhance our rain chances. At the same time it will bring the colder air deeper and deeper into the Commonwealth of Kentucky. This is when the weather world gets very interesting.

By Friday we are talking about a wintry mix and even some snow in the area. Where that line sets up will mean all the difference in the world. There is still plenty of time to tweak this forecast. My confidence is very high for the cold air intrusion late this week. The exact set-up for this system is lower.

We'll keep an eye on things this week.
