A major winter storm is on the way to the bluegrass state. Local high water issues are possible early Wednesday and that will be followed up by heavy snow and sleet. Significant accumulations are likely Wednesday night and Thursday.
Scattered showers and storms moved into Kentucky on Thursday. It all looked much more impressive earlier. Once the mass of rain crossed into Kentucky, it fell a part.
The weekend is now in sight and unfortunately... it looks ugly! A frontal boundary will begin sweeping into Kentucky on Friday evening. It will fire off widespread rain chances. There is also all kinds of potential for heavy rounds of rain. The front will slowly cross Kentucky. That means Saturday will be a soaker too. Again, the concern for heavier rounds of rain will be thrown into the mix. I really think that highs will get stuck in the low 70s on Saturday.
A few showers could even hold on during the early morning hours on Sunday. The dry and cool air that sweeps in will knock highs down into the upper 60s on Sunday.
The first few days of fall look very fall-like.
Be prepared for rain if you head out to area football games on Friday night.
