Tracking the Christmas Forecast

Posted at 5:05 AM, Dec 24, 2018

Merry Christmas! After rain yesterday, we are tracking brighter skies for Christmas Eve. If you’re heading out early, watch out for areas of freezing fog which could make roads slick and slippery. Sunshine will prevail during the afternoon with seasonal highs in the lower 40s.

Clouds return as Santa flies over the Bluegrass. Spotty rain and snow showers will be possible Christmas morning. So, some may see a “white Christmas,” just not quite in the traditional sense. Officially a white Christmas is an inch of snow on the ground at dawn on Christmas Day. More persistent periods of light snow could result in a coating on grassy surfaces. This wintry mix will wrap up during the afternoon.

Mother Nature will deliver her gift to the Bluegrass late-week. We are tracking highs to climb through the 50s. Friday will be near 60°. Along with the unseasonable warmth, we are tracking rain, possibly some thunder late-week. The final days of 2018 will be more “seasonal.”
