Springing Forward To Mild Temps

Good afternoon, everyone. We are losing a little sleep tonight, but gaining an hour of daylight on Sunday as we Spring Forward. This comes with much milder air pushing in to get your spring juices flowing. That mild air hangs tough into next week as spring showers and storms join the party.

Sunday looks amazing as temps reach the 60s with a partly sunny sky. A few clouds will increase later in the day as we watch a system set to impact our weather late Monday into Tuesday. Temps are still mild with this, but a few showers and storms will roll from west to east…

A weaker system follows that up by Wednesday. This will bring a shower or thunderstorm with it, but it doesn’t look terribly widespread.

Temps remain on the mild side, with the threat for a bigger system rumbling in here at some point next weekend and early the following week.

I’ve been barking about how the March pattern is skewed milder and wetter than normal and there’s no reason to change that thought. The Euro Ensembles show how the trough loves the west as ridging sets up in the east…

That configuration is a stormy one with above normal rain from the plains into our region. Those same Euro Ensembles show the wet weather during the same time…

Enjoy the rest of your day and take care.

Spring Starting To Kick In

Good Saturday, everyone. Our one and done shot of cold is pushing away, allowing spring to take control. This is looking more and more like a full-blown spring takeover of the pattern and it’s happening much sooner than normal. I know we already have lots of blooms showing up, but this is REALLY going to take off over the next few weeks.

Temps out there today are into the upper 40s to middle 50s with skies becoming mostly sunny. Don’t forget we Spring Forward tonight, so set those clocks up one hour before going to bed.

Sunday is amazing with sun and temps hitting the 60s. That extra hour of daylight hits at the perfect time. 🙂

The pattern for the next few weeks looks very mild and stormy for much of the country, including right here in Kentucky.

Starting Monday, we may get systems to move through here every couple of days or so. This show up on the EURO..

Monday/Tuesday

Wednesday

Next Weekend

The Following Monday

That’s an active setup and it could portend an active spring thunderstorms season.

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