Great Weather Before Big Changes

Good Saturday, folks. Today is a flat out gorgeous day across Kentucky and surrounding states. This nice weather will also come with an increase in temps right on through Sunday. As we wrap up the weekend and head into the final week of February, big changes show up. Ugh.

Let’s start with our Saturday forecast. It’s awesome! 🙂

Sunday doesn’t look bad at all as clouds increase and temps reach the 50s. Those clouds are ahead of our next wet weather maker slated to arrive in the west by Sunday evening. From there, this overspreads the rest of the state and continues through Monday and Monday night.

Rainfall numbers may reach an inch for some…

The second system follows that up with more of a winter look as we get into the middle and end of next week…

That cold air will be with us to close out February and kick off March. How long can this hold? The various ensembles suggest it won’t stick around long. The GFS Ensembles are showing a similar milder look developing compared to the Euro Ensembles…

Bring it! 🙂

I will have another update later today. Make it a great day and take care.

Kicking Off A Better Weekend

Good evening, folks. It’s another clear and cold night taking shape, but the forecast for the weekend remains in really good shape. Beyond that,  wet weather and some winter weather are on the way for the final work week of February.

We know the weekend looks great, so let’s focus on next week.

Rain rolls in here from west to east Sunday evening and lasts through Monday night. Rain totals of 1″+ may show up, especially across the western part of the state…

Tuesday will find the rain slowing down as colder winds slowly take over. Our next system develops just to our east Wednesday and lifts northward as even colder air dives into Kentucky. That sets the stage for some winter weather.

The models continue to go back and forth on how strong that system can get. Today’s trend has been for a more progressive look…

EURO

The cold air coming in behind that looks to linger as we wrap up the month and head into the start of March.

The good news for #teamspring is the Euro Ensembles are taking on a better look once into the first week of March as it does show some milder air coming back…

Sweet!! 🙂

Enjoy the evening and take care.

Friday Afternoon Update

Good afternoon, everyone. It’s a cold, but sunny day across the Commonwealth. This sunny weather carries us into the weekend as temps begin to climb. Things change quickly next week as two different systems look to impact our weather. The first is a rain maker on Monday, with the follow up bring winter weather for the middle and end of the week.

Temps this morning dropped into the low and middle teens for much of the state but should make a run at 40 this afternoon. The sun sure helps.

Saturday continues to look awesome. Readings are around 20 to start and will push 50 by the afternoon as sunny skies continue.

Clouds increase on Sunday as temps hit the 50s. Rain arrives Sunday evening and takes us through a very soggy Monday… The next system is likely to bring a winter weather threat to our region. Low pressure develops and works up the eastern slopes of the Appalachian Mountains. The exact track of that low will determine how much winter we get around here. It’s still way too early in the game for the models to get a firm grasp on any of that…
