A Windy, Mild, Second-To-Last Day in 2011

A Windy, Mild, Second-To-Last Day in 2011

It was a windy, mild late-December day. Some places saw winds gust over 40 mph today, and we have a nice sunset photo.
Friday, December 30, 2011: A Windy, Mild Second-To-Last Day of 2011

Good Friday evening, folks.  Since yesterday's blog post hit the arctic invasion hard, and we don't expect any changes from that forecast, we'll take a look at what has been a WINDY day today.  Many areas, including right here in the Bluegrass Region, had wind gusts over 40 mph this afternoon.  That warm breezy from the southwest drove temperatures to 58° this afternoon.  Here are the top five windiest locations from our area, today.

-

While it is still breezy this evening, winds are gradually dying down.  The Wind Advisory that was in effect across the Bluegrass Region expired at 6 PM, and that will serve as the final advisory of 2011 for our area.

-

Some parts of northern and eastern Kentucky received some afternoon rain showers.  Late this evening, additional showers are firing across central and eastern Kentucky.  They are a bit gusty, and won't last long in any one location.

I'll leave you with a nice photo from Jonathan Durham in Laurel County.  He went out with the camera as the sun was setting.  You can see a few low clouds that were likely racing across the sky, driven by that active breeze.

Thanks for the photo, Jonathan!

I plan to post an update on New Year's Eve.  Until then, be safe and enjoy the final day of 2011!
