A Little Ugly Wraps Up March

Good Tuesday, everyone. Ugly weather is pushing across the state today as low pressure zips by to our south. That’s giving our region a chilly and damp final day of March. Hang in there, temps look to rebound quickly later this week into the coming weekend.

Let’s begin with today and roll forward. The most concentrated rains will be across the southern half of the state. Farther north, the action is much more limited. Here are your radars…

Temps today will generally stay in the upper 40s to low 50s for most.

As the storm system moves away Wednesday, northwest winds behind it will keep clouds into the mix across central and eastern Kentucky. There’s a small shower chance under this area of clouds as temps struggle again.

Better weather moves in for Thursday and Friday as temps climb, kicking off another very warm period. The European Model has 7 day average temp anomalies way up there from this Thursday through next Thursday…

Temps should easily hit the 70s from time to time.

This pattern will also feature a few storms, starting with the weekend…

This much above normal pattern looks to continue into the middle of the month…

The overall setup continues to be very conducive to severe weather in Kentucky and surrounding areas. Buckle up for a busy spring.

Have a good one and take care.

Chilly Showers For Tuesday

Good evening, everyone. We have a little bit of ugly on the way for the final day of March. This will be bringing showers and chilly temps our way. Once we get past that, temps will rebound quickly for the end of the week and weekend.

Clouds are rolling in here ahead of low pressure rolling from west to east across the deep south. This is far enough north to give us a few showers, especially across the southern half of the state. The Euro is spitting out some decent totals in these areas…

Temps will be on the chilly side with most areas in the 40s.

Low clouds linger on Wednesday as temps rebound into the 50s. Thursday looks much better with readings hitting the 60s.

Much warmer air is on the way for the coming weekend. That’s when temps hit the 70s. There will be a few storms around later this weekend and early next week. I will focus more on that later tonight.

Here are your radars to track rain in from the southwest…

Enjoy the rest of your evening and take care.

A Little Ugly To Close Out March

Good Monday, everyone. Our final Monday of March is in pretty good shape, but things aren’t looking as good for the final day of the month on Tuesday. That’s when another ugly weather maker rolls across the region with chilly showers. As we look at the first week or two of April, we find the models continuing to trend milder than before.

Temps today are in the 60s as clouds increase. Those clouds are ahead of a southern storm system that passes by just to our south through Tuesday night and early Wednesday. That brings our ugly for stuff with it…

Temps are cooler than normal with this system through the first few days of April…

Once into Friday and the weekend, the trend continues to be for a big recovery in the thermometers. That looks to carry us into next week. Check out the EURO temperature anomalies…

As I’ve been saying on my TV gig, this is likely to be a very active spring severe weather season in our part of the world. It should also skew warmer than normal. One of the reasons I’ve been saying this is because the waters off the southeast seaboard into the Gulf are WAY above normal. This is actually nuts…

With frequent rains and thunderstorms, this looks like a tropical summer in the making around here. Those warm waters aren’t to be taken lightly. They may also be signalling another busy hurricane season.

I will throw you another update later today. Have a good one and take care.
