Monday Afternoon Thoughts

Good afternoon, everyone. It’s a gorgeous weather day across the region, making for a nice day off for your friendly weatherdude. Even though the day didn’t go as I planned, it was still good to enjoy some quiet time. 🙂 I hope you enjoyed the nice weather because it goes downhill starting Tuesday.

That’s when another system moves our way with a few showers and thunderstorms. This will mainly impact southeastern Kentucky with the heaviest rain and even a strong storm. Showers may reach all the way into areas of the Interstate 64 corridor…

Another front sweeps in on Wednesday with gusty winds and a few showers sweeping across the region. Colder winds will blow in on Thursday, with a bigger system late Friday into Saturday. This one has a chance to start as a little wintry mix before a few showers and storms take over ahead of the front. Once the front goes through, we could see a few flakes as temps crash on Saturday…

Canadian

Notice how the Canadian has more of a front end winter weather chance on Friday. We shall see.

A very cold pattern then engulfs much of the country behind that system and it looks to lock in…

Here are the temperature departures from normal up close and personal…

Winter weather lovers should be liking the pattern ahead, even as it’s the time of year I’m usually turning my attention toward spring anyway.

Enjoy the rest of your day and take care.

The Pattern Stays Busy

Good Monday, everyone. Even as your friendly weatherdude enjoys a day off from work, the weather never stops and neither does KWC. I’m working to correct some site issues, but it’s a process and you will be seeing a new and improved overall site. 🙂

In terms of the actual weather, we are rolling through our Monday with a pretty good looking day. Clouds will continue to fight it out with the sun as temps hit the 50s in most areas.

A southern system will throw some showers and storms into parts of the state later tonight and Tuesday. The best chance for this action will be across southern and southeastern Kentucky, but some rain should make it to Interstate 64 or a little north. There’s even a low-end risk for strong to severe storms in the southeast. Here’s the Severe Weather Outlook from the SPC…

Again, that’s a small potential,but one worth watching. We will also have to watch for heavy rain issues across the southeast, where more than an inch of rain will fall…

Another front crosses the state on Wednesday and brings a few gusty showers into the region.  Temps behind this will come down for Thursday, but there’s a quick recovery ahead of a more potent system blowing in for the weekend. This arrives Saturday with the potential for more thunderstorms and high winds…

Look at those Saturday wind gusts…

You can see the cold air coming in behind this late Saturday into Sunday. That may bring a few flakes behind the front.

Confidence continues to grow for a very cold pattern engulfing much of the central and eastern parts of the country…

I’ll see you all later today for updates. Have a good one and take care.
