Wednesday Evening Update

Good evening, everyone. A seasonal chill is in the air tonight, but that will soon give way to another big surge of springtime weather for our neck of the woods. Record highs are still a possibility as we roll our way into next week.

Milder winds begin to blow on Thursday as thermometer readings make a run into the upper 40s east, to middle 50s west. Skies should stay mainly sunny.

Friday looks like a flat-out awesome weather day with sunshine and highs in the low 60s…

The only drawback to the forecast comes later Saturday with some scattered showers developing. This happens as a weak upper level system passes through here…

Euro 4

Highs Saturday will be in the 60-65 degree range, but should take off by Sunday. As skies become sunny, readings range from 65-70 in most areas.

Low to middle 70s then sweep in here early next week…

Euro 2

There could be a shower or thunderstorm entering the picture by the middle of the week, and that may knock the temps down a few degrees. That could mean temps drop into the “chilly” upper 60s for a day.

No sweat, the 70s move back in later in the week ahead of a potent storm system…

Euro 3

It’s not too crazy to think about this pattern throwing an 80 degree temps somewhere across Kentucky.

The aforementioned storm will then move our way next weekend, wiping out our spring fling…

Winter is not dead. I keep trying to make this point, but it’s easy for people to get caught up in just how warm it has been of late. I get that. But, this isn’t a pattern that typically makes a seamless transition into “true” spring.

Enjoy the evening and take care.

Spring Gets Set To Surge

Good Wednesday, folks. We have a small shot of winter impacting parts of the state today, but the real focus is on another big time surge of spring air. This arrives later this week and kicks into high gear this weekend and early next week. Can we get to record highs? That’s a possibility.

Our southern storm continues to push to our east and southeast today. It’s bringing some rain and wet snow to the southeast, and some slushy accumulations may be noted to begin the day in the high mountains. For the rest of the area, a passing flurry is possible with temps in the upper 30s and low 40s,

Milder air then pushes in quickly on Thursday with readings hitting the upper 40s east to the low 50s in the west. Those numbers continue to climb on Friday with upper 50s to low 60s in most areas. Skies stay mainly sunny.

A weak system moves in by Saturday and should bring scattered showers our way…

GFS

Temps will be in the 60s. From there, temps get ready to take off from Sunday through Wednesday (at least). Record high temperatures are possible as a big ridge of high pressure dominates our weather…

GFS TEMPS 1

Highs should reach the 70s and I’m honestly wondering if parts of the state can make a run at 80 degrees. This is a very extreme pattern that is biased very, very, very warm through next week.

Does that mean we are totally done with winter? Nope…

This is not going to go harmlessly into true spring… It’s just not.

I will update things later today. Have a  good day and take care.
