Week Ahead Update

Good afternoon, everyone. Clouds are increasing ahead of another wet weather maker rolling in here to start the week. This kicks off a very busy pattern that will turn wintry as the week wears on, with the potential to put a little snow on the ground before all is sad and done.

Showers are increasing from the west and southwest this evening. This action will continue to increase through tonight and Monday. Locally heavy rains are a good bet with some areas pushing 1″ or so. A little thunder is also possible.

Here are your trackers to follow the drops into the region…

Colder air then moves in late Tuesday and Wednesday as our next system moves through. This means the winter weather potential creeps into the picture for Wednesday and Thursday. We will then watch for a couple of clippers to possibly bring some light snow behind all that for Friday and Saturday.

The GFS isn’t the best at seeing those clippers…

The Canadian shoes the potential…

The EURO also shows what I’m talking about…

Moral of the story, winter weather loves have a little late season action to track for Wednesday through Saturday.

Once into early March, the trend is likely much warmer and the EURO shows the numbers going above normal…

Enjoy the rest of your day and take care.

A Busy Final Week Of February

Good Sunday, everyone. As hard as it is to believe, we are now in the final week of February and our weather pattern is about to crank up again. We have one system moving in from the west later today, with more of a winter looking system targeting us by Wednesday and Thursday.

Let’s start with today and then hit the fast-forward button. Temps today reach the 50s as clouds increase. Showers move into far western Kentucky this afternoon then slowly overspread the rest of the state later through tonight. Here are your radars to track the action in from the west…

Monday is a rainy day and we could even have a few rumbles of thunder making an appearance. The rain will then slow down Monday night and early Tuesday, leading to a cloudy break for much of Tuesday.

Colder air continues to dive into the area on Wednesday as another system develops just to our east. As this lifts northward through the Appalachian Mountains, some snow breaks out in our region. Will this be true system snow or just periods of snow showers that linger through Thursday?

There’s also the chance for a system to drop in behind that around Friday or Saturday.

The Euro shows our potential from this setup…

The Canadian actually keeps the winter looking pattern going through the first few days of March…

I will have updates later today. Have a good one and take care.
