Thursday Evening Update

Good evening, folks. We continue to slowly pull out of this bitterly cold pattern, with some milder days on the way. As the pattern turns milder, it continues to look very active. Several big storms set to impact our weather over the next few weeks, mainly as rainmakers.

Our Friday forecast looks much better with highs in the 30s with mostly sunny skies. Drip, drip, drip… the snow melt really starts to kick in.

Highs this weekend start to climb with the 40s on Saturday, and a small shower chance. Temps will then climb toward the 50s Sunday and early Monday, ahead of our cold front. That front has a nice push of rain with it…

Temps tumble behind that boundary by Monday night and early Tuesday, with a few flakes trying to fly.

Temps rebound quickly as the week wears on, and likely turn mild. This happens as a deep trough digs into the plains states with a huge ridge in the southwest. That puts Kentucky into a potential stormy and soggy setup…

Watch the rain train showing up on the European Model…

That’s a soggy look!

Make it a great evening and take care.
