Much Warmer Pattern Kicks In

Good Friday, everyone. We have a much warmer pattern taking shape across the eastern part of the country. This is going to bring an extended run of highs in the 80s to the bluegrass state. As temps warm, we will also watch storm chances begin to increase.

Highs today are back into the 70s with a mix of sun and clouds. There’s enough low level moisture around to keep a small chance for a shower or storm going up…

The same can be said for the weekend, with an isolated shower or thunderstorm going up. Highs will be in the 80-85 degree range and that should be the trend into next week.

Storm chances will be with us at times into next week, especially late Monday into Tuesday, then again by the end of the week. That’s when we have two separate fronts trying to impact our weather.

The GFS is showing something similar. I’ve got the GFS running through the next 2 weeks. You will see the Jose hit on the northeast, thunderstorm chances around here, another tropical system making a run at the east coast, with a change to cool around here to end the month…

This pattern continues to run in maximum overdrive, so let’s see if we can keep this rolling into winter.

BTW, we will start talking some winter this weekend! 🙂

Make it a great day and take care.
