Strong and severe storms continue to push across central and eastern Kentucky. This action should begin to wind down over the next few hours.
The weekend starts nice with sunny skies and normal temps for Saturday. We are even warmer on Sunday with readings into the 50s on a gusty southwesterly wind. This is ahead of a strong cold front that moves in Sunday night and Monday. Rain will increase from west to east late Sunday.
Locally heavy rainfall is a good bet as the front eases in here. Winds into Monday will be very gusty as the colder air oozes in from the west.
Several models have been hinting at a storm system bringing snow in here by Wednesday of next week. That is a possibility, but so is the possibility of that storm being too far east to deliver much of anything here. It’s still one to watch.
Next week is more of a transition week. My eye is more on what’s coming in behind that. This has the look of a very wintry pattern for our region for the second half of the month into early March.
