Good evening, everyone. We have a couple of systems ready to bring a glancing blow of weather to the state over the next few days. This will knock the temps down for a few days, but the focus is on a major blast of February warmth by the weekend into early next week.
Our southern system zips eastward later tonight into Tuesday, bringing some showers across the southern half of Kentucky…
Winds will be gusty as temps range from the mid and upper 40s south, to the low 50s across the north. Colder air then filters in behind a cold front into Wednesday.
That cold will not hold and will get booted out of here VERY quickly. Temps by Friday may hit 60 degrees and it’s up, up and away from there.
The only drawback could come on Saturday with enough moisture to create a shower or two…
Highs will hit the 60s on Saturday, then surge toward the 70s for Sunday into Monday. That happens with a big ridge of high pressure into the region…
Record high temps could be threatened during this time.
The jet stream takes a big dip in the west and that trough rolls eastward into the middle of next week. Several models now cut that upper level system off, instead of brining the full trough in here…
If that is indeed the case, it would lead to unsettled weather with showers and strong storms, but the mild weather would continue.
I know many of you still want snow. While I haven’t been among you for nearly 2 months now (I still love snow, but and have been in spring mode since Christmas), I’m still looking for chances showing up. Right now, it’s a struggle to even find the chance.
Enjoy the evening and take care.

Good Monday, everyone. Temps are actually bordering on the normal side of the thermometer today. In a weather world gone mad, you know this won’t last very long. We have a small taste of winter in the days ahead, then we run the risk of record highs this weekend and early next week.
Highs today are generally in the 40s with a mix of sun and clouds. Ok, that’s enough of the normal part of the program.
Highs on Tuesday will hit the 50s as winds crank ahead of a strong system diving in from the northwest. This system will have a push of winter behind it, and tries to pick up a southern stream system. Odds continue to favor this as being “close but no cigar”…
Some snow showers and flurries can kick in for a bit, as winds become northwesterly.
The shot of cold behind that is in and out of town quickly, leaving the door wide open for a SERIOUS surge of spring. Highs by Friday will likely go deep into the 50s.
Weekend numbers can hit 70 or better and carry us into Monday…
With a deep trough working into the Mississippi Valley shortly thereafter, could a severe weather signal show up?
That’s a negative tilt showing up on that bad boy. If that look continues, expect more severe weather talk in the coming days.
I will update things later today. Make it a good one and take care.
