Tuesday Afternoon Update

Good afternoon, everyone. Better air continues to push into the region this afternoon as we focus on a drier forecast for the next several days. As this carries us into the weekend, we focus on a warmer and potentially wetter setup for next week and beyond.

The only system we have to track in the coming days is a cold front sweeping in from the northwest. That delivers colder air for Friday and early Saturday, and there’s even the chance for a few flakes in the east…

MUCH milder air moves in here by Sunday as temps climb toward 60. Next week is a milder than normal week that may also turn stormy once again. Obviously, individual details of said storm systems need to be ironed out, but the models are showing this wetter trend…

Temps look much warmer than normal through the middle of the month. Look at the 10 day (March 8-18) average temp anomalies from the GFS…

That doesn’t mean we won’t get a brief colder shot or two, it just means the average temps during this time will be above normal on the whole.

Enjoy the rest of your day and take care.

Storms Moving Away Today

Good Tuesday, everyone. We are coming off a night of strong storms and high water issues, but the weather looks better over the next few days. There’s a southern system that may give us a brush with rain Thursday, but the pattern is mainly dry until next week. Temps will do a little roller coaster during this time.

Severe weather hit areas of western Kentucky earlier Monday evening, with Tennessee taking the brunt of the severe weather. A devastating, long tracked tornado ripped through the Nashville area.

Some parts of Kentucky have picked up more than 3″ of rain and flooding is ongoing in some areas this morning, so let’s keep that in mind. Here’s a look at the current warnings…

Here’s our regional radar to track the rest of the action out of town…

Once the leftover showers and storms move away this morning, the afternoon looks really good with temps hitting the 60s with a mix of sun and clouds.

A little cooler air seeps in for Wednesday, but things remain dry. The Thursday system could still bring the potential for some rain in the  south and southeast, but it’s missing the connecting flight with a cold front dropping in from the northwest…

That’s a cold shot of air coming for Friday and early Saturday, but things turn much milder later this weekend into next week.

The overall trend continues to be warmer than normal through the middle of March on the Euro Ensembles…

I will have updates for you late today, so check back. Until then, have a good one and take care.
