Messy Late-Week Travel Conditions

Posted at 2:36 PM, Dec 26, 2018

A strong storm system will make for less than ideal conditions for travelers over the next two days. Fortunately it won’t be wintry weather, but instead wet weather that we’ll be tracking for the Commonwealth. Widespread rain will arrive Thursday afternoon. Embedded thunderstorms will be possible Thursday night through early Friday. Activity will start winding down during the second half of Friday. Between a half inch and an inch of rain will be possible.

The wind will also pick up as the rain moves in. A Wind Advisory goes into effect for central Kentucky Thursday morning. Gusty winds with gusts up to 45 mph will be possible Thursday. Wet and windy on the roads; not the greatest combination.

There is a silver lining. Temperatures will be sent into the upper 50s and lower 60s as this system moves overhead. Unfortunately, the unseasonable warmth won’t stick around beyond Friday.​ Temperatures will be “back to normal” this weekend. We are tracking highs in the 40s to close out 2018.
