April Starts Cold, But It Won’t Hold

Good Monday and welcome to the month of April. The month is off and running on a cold note as we see some of that March pattern hanging around this week. This is an impressive blast of chill blowing in, but the pattern is about to take a much needed turn to mild.

A cold front continues to drop in from the north early today. This may produce a rain shower that may mix with a flake of snow later in the day. The moisture with this front is rather limited and I don’t expect to see much of anything.

The temps will be the big story with highs today in the mid and upper 40s with overnight lows dropping into the 20s. That will set us up for a very chilly day on Tuesday as thermometers struggle to get past 40 degrees. 20s will be back Wednesday morning with highs back into the 40s.

A southern storm system continues to look like it will influence our weather by Thursday. Chilly showers will be possible, but that action may work out of here on Friday…

GFS That would then set the stage for a much milder weekend with temps hitting the 60s for highs. Next week has the potential to bring 80 degree temps in here for a day or two. This is part of an overall setup that should feature milder than normal temps…GFS 2With the good will come the bad and that will be the start of a period of stormy weather that will carry us through May and into the summer.

Have a great Monday and take care.

A Warmer Pattern In Sight

Happy Easter, Everyone. We have a half and half weather day taking shape across the commonwealth of Kentucky. Showers are blowing across the state early today, but some drying will try to take over by the afternoon. This is ahead of another blast of cold air coming in early in the new week. Hang tough… I am seeing a nice change to warmer air showing up in the near future.

The showers will slowly diminish into this afternoon as winds gust up and temps head toward the low 60s for many areas.

A strong cold front blows in here on Monday with the chance for a late day rain or snow shower. Moisture is rather limited with this front that will be remembered for the cold air it gives us for the first few days of the new month. Highs Tuesday will be in the upper 30s and low 40s and low and mid 40s for Wednesday. Overnight temps will hit the 20s.

The overall weather pattern for the past month and a half has featured a trough in the east and that has allowed cold air to funnel our way from Canada. Over the next week… this pattern will reverse itself…

GFS 2
A MUCH milder pattern will develop later this weekend into next week and that will FINALLY get spring going.

The transition period between the cold and the warmer setup is one to keep an eye on later next week. There could be a slow moving storm system rolling across the southeast and the models are going in that direction for Thursday…

GFS Euro
The GFS and European are trying to get together to give us a few nasty days by the end of the week. Here’s hoping that junk stays to our south.

Happy Easter and take care.

Easter Weekend Weather

Good Saturday and welcome to a wonderful start to our Easter Weekend. Thermometer readings are going to head toward the low 60s in many areas as skies go partly sunny. The same can’t be said for Easter Sunday as some showers come calling.

Temps today will be from the upper 50s to low 60s for many areas and that is simply awesome! Gusty showers will roll into town late tonight into early Easter Sunday. This will cause some issues for outdoor festivities early in the day. The good news is, we will see a drying trend setting in for the afternoon and evening as temps run toward the low 60s. Winds will be rather breezy as Easter egg hunts get underway.

A strong cold front enters our weather picture on Monday. That will have another blast of very cold air behind and may produce a rain or snow shower…

GFS

Temps on Tuesday will struggle to get out of the upper 30s for highs as lows into Wednesday and Thursday continue to run below freezing.

Milder air will begin to work in for the second half of next week with temps warming close to 60 degrees by Friday. That looks to be the start of a milder period of air that carries us into the middle and end of April. The GFS has a milder look to it for the second week of the month…

GFS 2

Make it a great Saturday and take care.
