Another Shot Of Spring Snow

Good evening, folks. Heavy rain continues to slowly pull away from the bluegrass state and now we turn our attention toward… Wait for it… Wait for it… Another round of spring snows. Our brief shot of winter will be with us later tonight and into Monday.

Colder winds continue to sweep the rain to our east, but watch for rain and snow showers to develop to our northwest later this evening…

That action will sweep in here overnight, with mainly snow showers and flurries taking over. That lasts into Monday as strong northwesterly winds crank behind a massive storm system…

Some light coatings are possible on elevated surfaces, but most of the flakes should be melting. Highs on Monday will only be in the upper 30s and low 40s, but wind chills may stay below freezing for much of the day… That would be the 16th day of April. Sigh.

Another hard freeze is on the way for Monday night and Tuesday morning as temps drop into the middle and upper 20s. Milder winds will boost afternoon temps into the 60s for most areas, setting the stage for a windy and mild Wednesday…

Those 70s are in front of another cold front dropping in Wednesday night. That may touch off scattered showers and storms, but the big news will be the temp drop coming behind it. Highs on Thursday may be nearly 30 degrees colder…

Temps will rebound a bit behind that to start the weekend, but another slow-moving storm looks to roll across the region. Here’s an animation showing both systems to impact our weather over the next week…

Again, this pattern continues to skew colder than normal through the rest of the month.

Enjoy the rest of your Sunday and take care.

Tracking Heavy Rain To Start The Day

Good Sunday, everyone. Heavy rain continues across parts of the state to begin our day, bringing a local high water threat to some areas. Once the rains taper off later today, our focus turns toward a quick-hitting taste of winter for Monday.

Severe storms across the deep south REALLY helped us out on Saturday, zapping the energy and taking our severe threat away. Still. heavy rains may cause local issues early today. Here’s what you need to track the potential…

The rain will taper off from west to east today, with much colder air blowing in. That same cold wind may produce some flurries or snow showers later tonight into Monday. Watch the action wrapping in on the NAM future radar…

That’s a very cold wind blowing all day, keeping highs around 40 or so. Wind chills will be even colder. Ugh.

Another hard freeze is coming Tuesday morning, with readings in the middle and upper 20s.Highs by Tuesday afternoon hit the 60s for many.

Another cold front moves through later Wednesday, bringing a small chance for a thunderstorm, and another drop in temps. That should be followed by another system for next weekend. This one is taking on a chillier look, which may limit the strong storm potential.

Overall, the pattern continues to skew colder than normal for the foreseeable future..

 

I will have another update later today. Make it a good one and take care.
