After a cold start, plenty of sunshine will combine with an active breeze from the south to boost temperatures into the lower 60s this Black Friday. High clouds will arrive late, and they'll gradually thicken, dimming the sun on Saturday. Rain showers will arrive on Saturday evening, then sharply colder air will arrive on Sunday. Chilly rain showers will mix with snow flurries and light snow showers, off and on, from Sunday evening into Tuesday, and some very light accumulations of snow will be possible, especially in eastern Kentucky. High pressure will provide pleasant but still cold weather on Wednesday before a new cold front sparks another round of rain that may change to snow showers and flurries on Thursday.
