Friday Evening Update

Good evening, folks. We have a vey active pattern that continues across our part of the world. One system is moving in tonight, with the next system getting more and more of my attention. This one could bring strong storms and snow next week.

In the short-term, showers and thunderstorms will develop and move into western Kentucky. It may be a close call with freezing rain across the north, so keep that in mind. Here’s regional radar…

Low pressure works across the state on Saturday, with scattered showers and thunderstorms. Some of the storms may be strong across the southeast…

Temps may range from 70 in south, to the 40s in the north.

Sunday looks like a nice weather day, before we track a potent storm system our way from late Monday through Wednesday. This may actually be a series of lows, potentially bringing everything from strong storms to heavy snow…

That’s one ugly system, that will have a healthy shot of cold coming in behind it.

After a brief moderation in temps, another winter looking system takes aim at the region next weekend…

Make it a great evening and take care.

Watching The Battle Of The Seasons

Good Friday, folks. We are tracking two systems toward the bluegrass state, with the first one arriving later today. This will bring an increase in showers and storms, giving us a bit of a spring feel and look. The second system coming early next week will bring winter back into the bluegrass.

Clouds will thicken today, as temps will come in much cooler than our Thursday readings. Showers and storms will increase in the far west, then roll eastward overnight into Saturday. This isn’t a washout type of a system, but some scattered action is likely…

That sets us up with one heck of a temperature north/south temperature gradient for Saturday. Check out the highs on the GFS…

Temps level out more for Sunday, as dry skies return. That’s a pretty good looking day, but things will quickly go the other way by later Monday and Tuesday.

A couple of potent systems will work in here through the first half of next week. The first brings us showers and storms and a drop in temps. The second is right on its heels, deliver the potential for snow…

We need to watch that carefully, because it has the potential to blow up into something stronger than what the models are showing. We may go from strong storms to accumulating snows.

Speaking of accumulating snows, is there anything about the GFS 10 day snow forecast that looks like spring?

Sigh.

Here’s regional radar to track the increase in showers and storms across the far west…

I will have another update late today. Have a good one and take care.
