LEXINGTON, Ky. (FOX 56/WKYT) – Our busy travel day looks good across the region with temperatures mainly in the 50s as clouds thicken. These clouds are ahead of a cold front ready to move in here on Thanksgiving Day.

Here’s a breakdown of how the long holiday weekend may play out:

  • Winds will be very gusty today and increase through tonight. 40mph gusts will be possible for central and western Kentucky.
  • Rain arrives late tonight and early Thanksgiving in the west and rolls eastward quickly through the day.
  • Your Thanksgiving Day looks pretty darn soggy, folks.
  • Temps generally settle into the low and middle 40s as it’s raining.
  • Cold air crashes in behind the front late Thursday into Thursday night. The back edge catches the rain shield for a little flake action in the east.
  • A couple of snow showers and flurries briefly kick in on Friday morning across the eastern half of the state.
  • Friday is a windy and cold day with wind chills in the teens to start. Highs only get into the 30s with wind chills in the 20s.
  • Saturday is a decent day ahead of our next system dropping in here later Sunday and Monday. This one may bring some light rain and light snow to the region.
