A wintry mix possible late Thursday

By  | 

A cold day is wrapping up across central and eastern Kentucky. Temps today struggled to get to the freezing mark, even as sunshine filled the air. Temps tonight will head into the upper teens and lower 20s.

Our attention then turns to a developing winter storm across the plains states. This bad boy will throw some moisture our way late Thursday into Thursday evening. That means a wintry mix of precipitation will overspread the state from west to east. That looks to be on the light side and will make the transition to rain as milder air moves in by Friday morning.

Temps Friday will surge into the upper 40s and may hit the low 50s for a few areas as winds gust up.

A secondary low pressure will develop just to our east by Saturday. That storm will deepen as it heads up the east coast and that should tug down some colder air for the weekend. It may also throw enough moisture our way for a chilly shower or two.

The next storm rolls into the plains states by Monday. This looks to be a potent storm and will cause our winds and temps to increase as it works our way. Showers and thunderstorms will be possible ahead of this system. It will then wrap up across the Ohio Valley and pull much colder air in here by Monday night and Tuesday. This could be a setup that takes us from thunder to snowflakes in a matter of hours.
