Updating A Busy Week Ahead

Good afternoon, everyone. Gorgeous weather continues across the bluegrass state as we get ready to a wild weather ride for the week ahead. Heavy rains, thunderstorms, near record temps, snow and a big temperature crash are on the way.

I’ve been setting the stage for this for a while now. A cold front moves in and hangs around, allowing areas of low pressure to work along the boundary. There is one heck of a temperature gradient showing up with this setup and that will help fuel a lot f precipitation.

The computer model 7 day rainfall numbers are very concerning…

Flooding is certainly a possibility in the week ahead and I can’t even rule out a few strong or severe thunderstorms. Those big thunderstorms may actually come just a few hours before we see some snow. Watch this dramatic temperature drop from Thursday through Friday night…

Watch the transition to some snow in the process…

The action doesn’t stop there. Two more potent storm systems then roll our way late next weekend into early the following week…

This is one energetic pattern that will deliver a ton of precipitation in our region for the foreseeable future. With a pattern that is likely to turn VERY cold again, that will likely include snows deep into March.

I will be on WKYT-TV tonight after the Super Bowl. You can check in with me then or later tonight on KWC. Make it a good one and take care.
