Friday Evening Update

Good evening, folks. After a much better Friday, rain is about to rill back into the region for Saturday. This looks like another soaker that could cause additional local high water issues to develop. The longer range continues to look action packed with more showers and strong storms.

Let’s begin with the Saturday system that rolls from west to east. This is a cold rain maker, but it may have enough cold air to produce a few flakes across the north…

Rainfall totals of 1″ or more will fall across much of the state and raises the concern for high water issues again. The flooding last night and this morning was way under warned across southeastern Kentucky, so some of these areas can’t hold much more.

The Euro shows the heaviest across the southern half of the state…

The NAM is a little farther north with this…

Regardless, areas getting in on a quick inch of rain tomorrow may be dealing with a few high water issues.

Sunday looks like a much better day with temps hitting the 50s. Next week is a warm one with rounds of showers and thunderstorms kicking back in. This could mean severe storms return, bringing a lot more rain.

The Euro rainfall forecast through next weekend…

The Canadian for the same time…

Enjoy the rest of your day and take care.

Some Ugly For The Weekend

Good Friday, folks. Our severe weather maker has pushed out of the state with much better weather replacing it today. Unfortunately, there’s some ugly rolling in for our Saturday as another rain maker settles in. In true Kentucky winter fashion, this is mainly a cold rain with the potential for some flakes in the north.

Early morning showers and storms move away from the southeast today, with mostly cloudy skies taking over. Temps will be in the 50s.

Saturday looks ugly with rain rolling in from west to east. Temps are very chilly and it may be just cold enough for some mixed rain and snow in the north.

That shows up on the models…

GFS

That’s another nice rain maker for our region. Ugh.

Sunday looks pretty nice with highs back into the 50-55 degree range with skies becoming partly sunny.

Once into early next week, temps really begin to take off on a strong southwest flow. A couple of scattered showers and storms will be possible. That action increases later in the week as a big plains storm system develops. Ahead of this, temps may surge deep into the 70s around here.

The overall pattern continues to be skewed wetter than normal for the next few weeks…

I will have another update later today. Until then, have a good one and take care.
