Monday Evening Outlook

Good evening, peeps. Damp weather continues across the bluegrass state as low pressure number one rolls right on top of us. System number two will then bring about the the chance for winter weather as early as Wednesday evening with another possible system right behind that.

Showers are fairly widespread this evening and will continue through tonight. I can’t rule out a rumble of thunder…

Showers will taper on Tuesday and we could even see a few rays of sun. Temps are generally back into the 50s.

The changes start Wednesday with a cold front working from west to east. This front will bring much colder air in here during the afternoon and evening. As temps fall, rain will change to a period of light snow with a few snow showers showing up on a northwest flow Wednesday night and early Thursday. Behind that comes a couple of clippers from the northwest. The first arrives Thursday night and early Friday with a lighter system behind that early Saturday…

The European Ensembles continue to point toward a milder than normal opening week and change for March…

Enjoy the rest of your evening and take care.

A Rainy Monday Afternoon Update

Good afternoon, everyone. Wet weather continues across the region as low pressure makes it way in from the southwest. As the week wears on, the focus shifts to winter weather and the potential to put a little snow on the ground for the closing days of February.

Rounds of showers will continue through tonight and there’s even the chance for a rumble of thunder showing up. Here are your radars to play along…

Showers will linger into Tuesday as we get ready for a cold front to sweep through here. That happens on Wednesday with light rain changing to a period of light snow late as temps tumble. Periods of snow showers may cause light accumulations Wednesday night and Thursday. By Friday and Saturday, a couple of clipper looking systems then dive in from the northwest. Those could also put down light accumulations.

Here’s a look at how a few of the midday models are handling things…

Cold temps will accompany this pattern and we are talking about wind chills again…

The pattern turns much milder into the first week of March. This is also a pattern that throws a big storm system our way and it could bring strong storms and heavy rains with it. Check out the GFS rain totals through this time…

I will have the latest on WKYT-TV starting at 4pm then again on KWC this evening. Make it a good one and take care.

Rain Before Winter Weather Chances

Good Monday, folks. Wet weather is increasing to kick off the week, but we have some winter weather heading our way later this week as we get ready to close our the month of February. Once into early March, the signs point toward milder temps settling back in.

Today’s rains will continue to move through and we could even hear a few rumbles of thunder. This will make for a pretty wet day for the entire region. Here are your tracking toys…

Showers linger into early Tuesday before things try to dry for a bit. Once we get into Wednesday and Thursday, much colder air sweeps in from the northwest with the potential for a period of light snow and then some snow showers. A couple of systems will then dive in from the northwest by Friday and Saturday and could bring light snow to parts of the region…

That’s a really cold way for February to come to a close, but this is the hand Mother Nature is dealing us.

Much milder air then moves in for the first week of March as we need to keep close tabs on what could be a potent storm system developing in the plains. This setup could bring some thunderstorms our way…

March is famous for some wild swings and those wild swings usually lead to an increase in precipitation. The two week precip anomalies from the GFS Ensembles show us above normal…

I will have updates later today, so check back. Until then, have a magnificent Monday and take care.
