winter coming in full force


1. some drizzle for Monday with mostly cloudy skies and highs in the mid 50’s as the region gets clipped by a low pressure heading up the east coast.

2.  Tuesday should have a fair mix of sun and clouds with highs in the mid 50’s as weak high pressure moves south of the region.

3. The next front arrives with rain shower chances for Wednesday travel plans and highs near 50 with clouds and a nw wind increasing. Overall any travel delays for weather in Kentucky should be minor. wind and showers over the great lakes and thunderstorms in Florida are expected to be the main travel hazards on Wednesday.

4. Nw flow sets up for Thanksgiving and Black Friday, a mix of rain and showers are likely Thursday followed by all snow showers on Friday to put us in the holiday shopping sprit. I think we get into the mid 40’s Thursday with parts of the day in the 30’s but Friday temps stay in the 30’s. Minor high eelvation accums not out of the question.

5. DEC 1 storm update from the 00z gfs. It’s becoming more likely there will be a storm in my view.

This track would be hvy rain to snow showers with a snowstorm from Little Rock to Chicago, areas from 1-65 west would see accumulating snow at the end. The 18z run had the snowstorm overhead and the 12z run went out to sea with the track 2 runs before that tracked the storm the same as today’s run. We will see flips and flops with this.

6. The next threat for accumulating snow may be around the 6th or 7th.

    Hey Mitch! Lovin’ all the chances for snow, even if it should only be flurries on the Holiday. What about the parade here in Versailles? Do you think we may have a chance of the white stuff being around then?
