First Alert Weather Forecast

The the final weekend before Christmas is here. What is usually a very busy weekend for travelers and last minute shoppers looks to stay fairly decent.

Over the past few days we have been tracking changes to a big southern storm that had all kinds of snow potential for our area. That system is now looking to take a more southern track and keep the bulk of the moisture away from Kentucky. While we'll still see some snow Saturday, it doesn't look like it has major impact written anywhere on it. All last minute things on your list won't have a major interference from Mother Nature.

As for Christmas week, that's a very different story. It includes a big strong system for midweek. We'll actually start feeling the impacts on Monday with some rain in our area. The rain ramps up even higher on Tuesday when we see widespread chances.

Expect winds to increase as the storm system gets stronger on Tuesday night and into Wednesday. This leads us into Christmas Eve. All rain will eventually make a transition over to snow. Snow will likely hang around through most of Christmas Day. It will begin to taper off during the afternoon and into the evening hours. At this point it certainly looks like we'll see some snow on the ground. The question that we'll continue to tweak the answer to is "How Much?" As days pass by it will become a little clearer.

Enjoy the dry conditions this weekend because it is about to get active again!
