Thursday Evening Thoughts

Good evening, folks. Today’s surge of nice weather is just what the weather doctor ordered. How long can we keep this rolling? The simple answer is… Not much longer. Old Man Winter is not going quietly into the night. Wah Wah!

The system rolling in here for Friday and Saturday continues to slow down just a bit. That should give us some bonus dry weather across the central and east on Friday. Showers and some thunderstorms will rumble into the west, and those roll across the rest of the state into Saturday…

There’s an outside chance for a strong storm to pop along and ahead of that low. That same low will also bring a healthy temperature gradient from north to south. The farther south and west, the milder those temps will be through Sunday. Speaking of Sunday, it looks like a pretty decent weather day, right now.

A strong southwesterly flow develops on Friday with temps having a shot at spiking to 70. This is ahead of a more potent storm system, crossing the Ohio Valley. A few strong thunderstorms may be noted ahead of this, with the potential for snow behind it by Tuesday and Wednesday…

That’s a lot of cold air surging back in here for the middle and end of next week…

We are likely to see this setup repeat itself a time or two before March is finished. True spring continues to be a pipe dream at the moment.

Enjoy the evening and take care.

Winter and Spring Are Ready To Fight

Good Thursday, everyone. Old Man Winter and spring are ready to fight it out over the next week. Vegas currently has the Old Man as the favorite. That’s because the overall pattern continues to be skewed heavily in his favor for the next week, at least.

Today is a very nice day across the bluegrass state. Highs will range from the low 60s in the west, to the low 50s in the east. Skies will stay mainly sunny, so let’s get outside and enjoy some of the good stuff.

The bad stuff is ready to roll back in here for the next few days. That’s when another storm system rolls our way, bringing an increase in showers and a few thunderstorms…

The frozen stuff looks to stay just to our north, as we are walking a fine line between winter temps and spring temps this weekend. Check out the temp spread for Saturday…

Sunday looks like a REALLY nice day, but that won’t last very long.

This brings us to another potent storm system rolling across the Ohio Valley by Monday and Tuesday. We have a slew of possibilities with this system, including going front strong storms to snow…

Wraparound snows would be something that could carry us into the middle of next week. Temps during that time will come WAY, WAY down.

This very active pattern likely takes us through the rest of March, and I think it keeps rolling through the spring. That can mean a lot of precipitation around here. The European forecast for the next 45 days has the heaviest precip right on top of us…

I will have another update later today, so check back. Enjoy he day and take care.
