Milder and wilder weather waiting in the wings

We continue to track a weak system across central and eastern Kentucky into the evening hours. This will continue to create a few bands of light rain and light snow. Winds will crank up as colder air sweeps in from the northwest.

This will send our temps into the low to mid 20s overnight. Gusty winds will make it feel even colder. Wednesday will see a return of the sun with highs in the blustery 30s.

Milder air fights in on Thursday as temps head toward 50 degrees. A late day shower will be possible as moisture streams in from the southwest. That moisture is ahead of a cold front that works in for Friday. This will put the brakes on and give us rounds of rain and thunder through the weekend. Locally heavy rain of 1"-3" will be possible. Winds will be very gusty with highs hitting the 60s.

A big temperature crash is likely by later Sunday as arctic air pours in from the northwest. A change from rain to snow showers and flurries will carry us into Monday as temps struggle to get out of the 30s.
