A Touch of Winter Possible

Good evening, folks. It’s an absolutely raw and cold spring evening across the bluegrass state as we are right in the middle of an ugly setup. This has the chance to deliver a little light rain and light snow action coming up on Tuesday.

Winds are gusty this evening, but nowhere near what we have had the past 24 hours. A touch of drizzle or a light shower is lingering across the eastern half of the state…

A fast-moving system moves through here on Tuesday and may have a stripe of light rain and light snow with it. This is coming from southwest to northeast. Check out where the models think will see some flakes…

NAM

EURO

Temps behind this will absolutely tank, leading to a hard freeze by Wednesday morning. Most areas drop deep into the 20s, but the NAM is probably too cold here…

That would be record breaking cold if the NAM is right, but it’s likely too cold.

We still have more ugly on the way later this week and I will get more into that later tonight. Until then, make it a good one and take care.

Storms Usher In A Big Change

Good Monday, everyone. Strong storms and high winds are rolling across the state to begin the day. This is ahead of our potent storm system we’ve been talking about for about a week. It’s also ushering in much colder air and that could bring a touch of winter weather this week. Sigh!

Let’s begin with what’s going on out there this morning then look ahead. A line of strong to severe storms is possible ahead of our deepening low. The winds are going to continue to crank with our without storms. Quite a bit of wind damage has already been reported.

Heavy rains may also cause some local high water issues. Here are your tracking tools…

Colder and drier winds blow this afternoon as temps drop into the upper 40s and low 50s. Tuesday and Wednesday are cold days around here and we have the chance for a wave of low pressure to bring some light rain and light snow late Tuesday into Tuesday night. The best chance of this is across central and eastern Kentucky. Watch how the NAM sees this well and sees another snow system just to our north after that…

Another freeze may follow that up Wednesday morning as temps drop into the 20s…

Temps stay way below normal into the weekend as another chilly shower maker sweeps through. We aren’t quite done with the chilly shots, but the pattern starts relaxing through next week. As a matter of fact, when this pattern breaks, it’s likely to break toward very warm and humid.

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