Big weather changes blowing into the bluegrass state

This is a wild, wild pattern that’s just getting started. From the heavy rain and wind threat this weekend to the return of arctic cold and winter… we have a ton going on.

A few things are becoming more clear on the weekend setup…

- Flooding rain still looks to be the biggest threat. Much of central and western Kentucky could be looking at 2″-5″ of water from Friday through early Sunday. Amounts in the east may be under an inch.

- High winds will also be of concern. Wind gusts of 40mp+ will be possible.

- The severe storms threat is still there, but I am not as high on the potential as earlier. That could still change.

- The temperature gradient will be amazing across the Ohio Valley. Sunday will start in the mid to upper 60s and end with readings falling toward the freezing mark.

- Snow showers and flurries look to be around for Monday into Christmas Eve Day. It looks windy and it looks cold!

- A system working in by Thursday has the look of snow maker.

- There’s another system behind that tries to produce a more significant system on the last weekend of the year.
