LEXINGTON, Ky. (12/17/13) — A white Christmas isn’t expected for Lexington this year as a warm front makes it way towards the Bluegrass this week.
“We are going to see a little bit of a warm up in the next couple of days,” said Meteorologist Matt Dixon. “Highs will be in the upper 50s on Thursday and low 60s on Friday.”
As a cold front follows and so does precipitation.
“We will focus on that cold front because the week will be pretty much dry until the weekend comes around and beginning on Friday, we are looking at a very wet weekend,” said Dixon.
The cold front will stall over the region and Lexington will be looking at more than an inch and a half of rain.
“Looking at the weather pattern this week we can predict that Christmas temperatures will be above average and precipitation will be likely,” said Dixon.
After viewing the history of what the weather has been for the past 30 years on Christmas on climate.gov, Dixon has predicted that there is less than a 25 percent chance to see a white Christmas this year.
“That’s not saying it couldn’t happen,” said Dixon. “Just by looking at the weather in the past, Lexington doesn’t have a good chance.”
