Tracking a Mostly Cold Rain Event to Start the Week

Posted at 4:03 PM, Nov 11, 2018

Hopefully you enjoyed the “warmer” temperatures and the sunshine on this quiet November day. This will be one of, if not the warmest day of week. Below-normal temperatures will be the one constant this week. Along the way a series of disturbances will try to throw us some chances rain and/or snow showers.

We’re setting to stage now for disturbance #1 to track in tomorrow. Skies will become mostly cloudy overnight, which will hold temperatures to the 30s for lows. This early week event will mostly be rain, albeit a cold rain. We are tracking rain to advance northward throughout the afternoon. Then late Monday night colder air will work and try to change rain to snow showers. By this point there will be very little rain to convert around the Bluegrass. Some freezing precipitation and/or light snow will be possible Tuesday morning before everything tapers off to a pesky drizzle late-day. No snow accumulation is expected.

We are tracking another system that could bring us a slightly better chance for snow Wednesday night. This would begin with a rain/snow mix then go over to light snow before ending as a chilly rain on Thursday. Then a clipper system could track through bringing another chance for flurries to start the weekend. It will be an active week track these pre-winter systems so stay with the StormTracker Weather Team for the latest forecast.
