It hasn’t been a typical start to December. We had record-setting rainfall yesterday, and today was 20 degrees above-normal! Now it’s back to work and back to reality. Winter is here to stay for the week. The winds of change will blow in tonight. (Speaking of the wind, it will gradually die down by this time tomorrow.) Clouds will return and lows will settle into the upper 30s. Temperatures won’t recover much Monday afternoon under cloudy skies. We are tracking highs in the mid 40s tomorrow. It turns even colder through mid-week. Highs will hover just above the freezing mark by Wednesday.

There will also be small chances for sprinkles and flurries beginning Monday night and lasting through Thursday. Activity will be widely scattered during this stretch as a series of weak disturbances sweep past the Bluegrass. Little to no accumulation is expected, especially given how warm it was been the past two days.

We are tracking a system next weekend that could bring more significant impacts. A storm will move across the Southeast Saturday and Sunday. Central Kentucky will be on the colder, northern side. Right now we are including chances for rain and/or snow showers both days. Stay with the StormTracker Weather Team for updates as we continue to track next weekend’s system and the impacts on the Bluegrass.
