Friday Evening Update

Good evening, gang. We are rolling our way into the weekend with milder air rolling back into the bluegrass state. This air will lead us into another busy weather week taking shape for next week, with some models taking on more of a winter look.

Temperatures will soar into the 50s on Saturday, but watch the northeast early on for a few snowflakes. That’s on the nose of warmer air sweeping in here for the rest of the weekend. Highs by Sunday hit the 60s.

A shower or storm is possible on Monday as southwesterly winds kick in. Those winds will be ahead of a potent cold front arriving on Tuesday with a line of showers and storms…

Seasonally chilly air moves in behind that system, but the European Model now takes on a full blown winter look by Friday and Saturday…

Euro 2

Check out the cold air with that system…

Euro 3

Ouch.

That’s part of the whole back and forth temperature pattern on the European Model. Check it out…

The control run of the European Ensembles supports the cold pattern for next weekend…

The GFS Ensembles are not buying what the European Model is selling. It’s MUCH warmer…

A Milder Weekend Ahead

Good Friday, folks. A small taste of winter is back in the bluegrass state, but this isn’t going to hang around very long. Temperatures this weekend are set to turn much milder than what we have out there today. This continues to be part of the back and forth setup that will likely cause additional severe weather issues in the coming weeks.

A small band of light snow and flurries will continue to dive from northwest to southeast very early this morning. Some coatings are possible with this in a narrow band. Elsewhere, some flurries will fly around with a mix of sun and clouds. Highs today range from the low 40s west to the middle 30s east…

Saturday starts cold with reading deep into the 20s for many. Milder winds then begin to blow with afternoon temps hitting the low and mid 50s east, with low 60s in the west…

The entire area hits the 60s on Sunday with southwesterly winds becoming more established. This wind will also bring some clouds in here and I can’t rule out a shower trying to pop.

Monday looks similar as mild weather continues ahead of a cold front. That front moves in on Tuesday with the potential for a line of showers and thunderstorms…

Can we get some strong storms out of that? That’s certainly a possibility.

Chilly temps swing back in behind that front, but another big warm up kicks in by the end of the week…

Euro 3

That’s ahead of… Wait for it, wait for it… Another strong storm system…

As I’ve been telling you for weeks now, this is a very worrisome pattern as we head into the severe weather season. We have already had one major severe weather outbreak, and I would think this pattern can throw several our way through May. Ugh.

Have a great day and take care.
