Thursday Afternoon Thoughts

Good afternoon, everyone. We have a pretty decent late January day taking place across the region, but that’s not going to last. Another system rolls in here for Friday, with another for Saturday. Those two will have touch of ugly with them before we turn Super for Sunday.

A band of light rain increases from southwest to northeast tonight and early Friday. This zips through with a small potential for some frozen stuff across far northern Kentucky…

GFS

The next system then moves in with a few showers on Saturday and some of those may end as a flake during the evening. That doesn’t look like a big deal at all.

Super Bowl Sunday looks great with sunny skies and temps in the upper 50s to low 60s. 60s looks to hold tough for Monday and Tuesday as some showers increase. Those showers are ahead of a slow-moving cold front working in here from the west. This will likely slow down, leading to additional waves of low pressure rolling along it.

Here’s how the GFS sees it…

The Canadian Model is much slower with all this and is similar to last night’s EURO…

I may not be able to update this evening, so no worries if I can’t! Make it a good one and take care.

Half and Half Weekend Ahead

Good Thursday, everyone. Our wimpy winter weather maker is pushing off to the east with much better weather coming in today. With January ending on Friday, another system moves in with a few showers. This lingers into Saturday before some of the good stuff returns for Super Bowl Sunday.

Let’s begin with today and roll ahead. Any morning flurries go bye bye in the east and then our skies try to brighten by the afternoon. Temps will warm into the 40s.

Our next system develops well to our southeast on Friday, but will throw a few showers in here. This could even begin as a touch of frozen stuff in the north. That’s ahead of a Saturday system diving in from the northwest with mainly rain, but this may end as a few flakes by evening. You can see all this on the NAM…

Sunday is the rare combo of Groundhog Day and the Super Bowl, but it will be Mother Nature stealing the show. Temps will spike into the upper 50s and low 60s with plenty of sunshine…

Temps for Monday and Tuesday will climb into the 60s on a strong southwesterly flow. This flow will also bring rounds of rain in here ahead of a slow-moving cold front. That front moves in here on Wednesday, unleashing much colder air. That same front may stall near the region allowing another big storm to develop along it.

Watch this whole setup on the EURO…

That would be a rather interesting setup.

Updates will come your way later today. Until then, have a terrific Thursday and take care.
