Showers Are Back For The Weekend

Good Saturday, folks. Our Mother’s Day Weekend is underway with rounds of showers rolling across the Commonwealth. This isn’t wall to wall rainfall, with several dry hours showing up, but some locally heavy rains are possible.  In addition to the showers, cooler than normal temps are a good bet.

Today will feature showers across the south and east to start, with mainly dry weather farther west and north. Late day showers will increase from southwest to northeast and that can become heavy at times tonight. Here are today’s trackers…

Additional rain rolls across central and, especially, eastern Kentucky for Mother’s Day. Southeastern parts of the state may get enough rain to cause local high water issues.

All of this unsettled weather is coming from a highly anomalous system moving through the eastern half of the country. This is something you see more in the winter months…

That cooler than normal air lasts into the middle of next week, which will also be our next threat for a shower or thunderstorm.

Temps rebound to near normal later in the week into next weekend, but the cool air may not be too far away to our north. That could turn us wet again…

That would certainly keep temps from warming up for very long. As a matter of fact, the CFS has the next month skewing colder than normal for much of the country…

Have a great Saturday and take care.
