LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - Our dreary factor remains high for today, but overall it isn’t that bad. The “bad” part could be here by early next week.

After yesterday’s front moved through Kentucky, it left us with a different look to the weather world. We are right behind the system, and it left clouds with some drizzle for Thanksgiving. Both Friday and Saturday look a whole lot better for us. Sunshine will return to the sky.

Another big wind, rain, and snowmaker will blow in on Sunday evening. The first thing you will notice from it will be the wind. Gusts will once again approach 30-40MPH. Some could be even higher. It is the next phase of that system that has all of the questions surrounding it.

The Wintry Side

Rain will make a transition over to snow sometime on Monday. If I had to commit to a specific time, this far out, my confidence wouldn’t be very high at all. So I will not do that yet. The other thing that I can’t adopt is a snowfall total. There is just too much time left. However, if you twisted my arm and told me to give something specific about this system, I would say something significant is possible. All of the trends that I watch are looking strong for this system—still plenty of time for this to lose some strength.

We will be all over this one!

It is another Thursday, and every day we move forward is a day closer to a return to our ordinary world. We are nearly there! Take care of each other; we’ve got this!
