A Rainy Start To Another Cold Week

Good Monday and welcome to the end of our spring fling. The weekend was nothing short of awesome and now it’s time to pay up. We have another big blast of cold air blowing in over the next few days and this should even bring a few snowflakes back into the region.

A cold front is working eastward across the state today. Showers are widespread and will continue to be into the evening hours… especially across the east. Winds are going to be gusty and may approach 40mph at times. Thermometers will hit the low and mid 50s ahead of the front then come crashing down behind it.

Some areas could pick up more than one inch of water from today’s rain.

Tuesday will see a lingering shower in the east to start as colder air bleeds in. Highs in the low and mid 40s will be common.

Another cold front drops in here Tuesday night and Wednesday morning and will bring even colder air back into the bluegrass state. Highs Wednesday may not get out of the low and 30s. To add insult to injury… the wind chill may dip into the high teens at times as snow showers and flurries kick in. Those flakes will be especially common across central and eastern Kentucky…

That’s a pretty good northwesterly wind flow setting up for a time. Let’s see if it can drop a light accumulation somewhere.

The pattern continues to look ugly this weekend into next week. The European Model is going a little crazy with a big storm threat early next week…

The pattern remains ripe for another winter storm to crank across the eastern half of the country. Here’s hoping that doesn’t impact our weather, but it’s something to keep a close eye on.

Enjoy the rain and wind of today and take care.
