Sunday Afternoon Look Ahead

Good afternoon, everyone. It’s an absolutely amazing afternoon here in the bluegrass state as temps hit the 60s. As we roll ahead,  rain is ready to roll across the state to begin the first work week of the new month. The good news continue to be that the heaviest rain is now targeted to be well south of the state.

Showers and a few thunderstorms develop from west to east this evening and tonight. Here are your radars to follow along…

Showers and storms will increase on Monday and there’s even the chance for a strong storm or two in the west and southwest. The SPC continues to watch this area…

The rain continues into Tuesday, but the front moving in has enough push to take the heaviest rains well to our south for Wednesday and Thursday…

Much colder air does come in for the end of the week and start of the weekend, but the ensembles continue to point to a milder than normal pattern through the middle of March…

Get on the #teamspring bus before it runs you over! 🙂

Enjoy the rest of your day and take care.

March Begins With Better Weather News

Good Sunday and welcome to March. The third month of the year is off and running with some very nice weather, but things turn pretty wet for the next few days. That said, the forecast isn’t looking nearly as bad in terms of heavy rain.

Let’s start with the good stuff and that’s our Sunday. Temps warm into the upper 50s to low 60s for the entire state. Skies will be sunny early, but clouds roll in during the afternoon. Get out there and live life to the fullest, folks!

Those clouds are ahead of a lot of rain coming in from tonight through Tuesday. This is courtesy of a slow-moving system that will actually have much more of a southward push than it looked like a few days ago. This still means quote a bit of rain with a general 1″-2″ possible, but the prospects of truly excessive rains are much lower. That threat looks to be farther to our south.

Here’s a look at some of the model forecasts through Wednesday…

The setup for Monday is also one that can bring a few strong storms to parts of western Kentucky. The Storm Prediction Center has a low-end risk out for parts of that region…

Colder air comes in by the end of the week and start of the weekend. There’s even a flake chance during this time. Once beyond that, this pattern can turn downright warm for this time of year. The Ensembles are all over a much above normal setup…

I will have another update later today. Enjoy your first day of March and take care.
