Here comes the cold. An arctic front will pass through the state late Sunday morning bringing with it a return of a January like airmass. High temperatures will be reached this morning ahead of the cold front with afternoon temperatures hovering in the mid-20s. That’s a big difference from the 55° we hit on Saturday and the 61° Friday high temperature.
Yesterday morning we slid the chance for snow really to the far southern edge of the state and as we wake up this morning that is where we find winter weather advisory
this morning. If you are heading towards or through the Louisville area today you may encounter a 60 mile stretch of both snow and ice. Expect hazardous driving if you are heading south.
There are notable differences when it comes to just how warm we will be this week. I am a fan of the GFS model that actually keeps us just shy of 60°. The Euro shows a more baroclinic flow (active, with fronts) to end the week. This generally means more variation in temperatures and that is certainly the case with us continuing to see roller coaster like ups and downs with temperatures.
Rain chances don’t look great over the next week with the Euro not surprisingly being the more active (baroclinic flow) of our long range models. This week you may need the umbrella on Wednesday and again on Friday night.
