Valentine’s Day Update

Good evening, gang. Here’s hoping your Valentine’s Day is going well. Old Man Winter is going to pay a small visit to southeastern Kentucky tonight and early Wednesday. That could leave some snow behind, but the overall focus of the forecast is for a full blown case of spring fever.

Rain across southern Kentucky continues this evening and we have already had some flakes mixed in. The southeastern corner of the state may pick up on some slush by early tomorrow morning. The NAM looks a little overzealous with the snow map…

The highest elevations will have the best chance of picking up on some wet snows to start Wednesday. Here are your evening trackers…

Temperatures by Wednesday afternoon will hit the upper 30s to low 40s for most areas.

Milder winds will then kick in on Thursday as temps hit the 50s in the west and upper 40s to near 50 elsewhere. Much milder air then surges in here for Friday with most areas topping 60 degrees…

Euro 3A weak system will increase clouds on Saturday and may throw a shower our way…

Highs this weekend will be in the 60s and may hit 70 by Sunday, if the clouds get out. From there, it’s game on for potential record highs…

The interesting thing about computer forecast numbers in this setup is… They are usually underdone. Spring it on! 🙂

Enjoy the evening and take care.

A Chilly Shot Before A Big Blast Of Spring

Good Tuesday and Happy Valentine’s Day. Our “close call” system is having a minor impact on our weather today into Wednesday. Thais happens as chillier air moves back in, but the big surge of spring coming later this weekend into early next week is the star of the weather show.

Our day may start with a small batch of light rain and light snow zipping across the north. From there, we turn our attention toward a southern system bringing scattered showers to the region late today, with the greatest risk across the southern half of the state. Outside of any showers, it’s a mix of sun and clouds with gusty winds and temps in the low 50s…

That southern system will largely impact southern and southeastern Kentucky tonight and early Wednesday. The GFS is now bringing a swath of rain and snow to these areas…

That should show you just how close of a call this system really is.

This cold won’t be around very long as spring surges back in here by Friday. Readings into the afternoon will likely make a run at 60 degrees…

After a shower chance on Saturday, the temperatures then surge by Sunday through early next week. Record highs in the 70s are a possibility during this time…

That could set the stage for a very active storm system rolling our way by the middle of next week.

I will have another update later today. Enjoy your Tuesday and take care.
