The forecast remains active as we approach Christmas. Thursday will feature a slight chance of rain and/or snow showers as a dying low pressure system comes in from the west. I'm not expecting any accumulation in Eastern Kentucky from this system. Highs tomorrow will be in the upper 30s.
Friday should feature a mix of sun and clouds as we catch a break between storm systems. Lows will be in the upper 20s, highs in the lower 40s.
Saturday is when our next storm enters the region. The latest trend in the forecast is for this storm to push farther south, so far south where our chances of precipitation are not looking as good as a few days ago. We will have to see if the storm track shifts back north over the next few days. Right now we do have a least a low chance of some accumulation by Sunday morning, but it's not looking as impressive as it was a few days ago.
Monday looks dry with highs rebounding to near 50. Another low pressure looks to move in on Tuesday and Wednesday, and this would bring rain on Tuesday, and a wintry mix on Wednesday. This one could have a big impact on holiday travel in the region depending on how it develops, but a lot of uncertainty is in play because it is a week away.
