Active Setup Set To Return

Good Tuesday, everyone. We have a cold front brushing the state today and it’s spitting out some early day showers for parts of the state. This is a prelude to a much more active pattern kicking in later this week into the weekend. It’s one that looks to continue to keep our temps averaging cooler than normal for the foreseeable future.

Let’s begin with today and roll forward. Gusty showers will be possible across the eastern half of the state into early afternoon…

Drying winds take control behind the departing front, but it’s also a much cooler wind. As skies clear overnight, readings drop into the frosty 30s across central and eastern Kentucky.

Clouds increase on Wednesday as a potent storm system rolls in from the west. Temps will be near normal before any shower or thunderstorm action shows up from west to east in the evening. That sets the stage for rounds of showers and storms Wednesday night through Thursday. Heavy rain will be possible.

Friday looks to be a pretty nice day as we are sandwiched between systems. That next one could fire up some strong storms Saturday as low pressure strengthens in our region. That one taps much colder air for Sunday and Monday.

Both systems show up well on the models…

Another system will likely drop in and follow a similar path early next week. Overall, the next week to 10 days could put down a lot of rain across our region.

Unfortunately, temps look to average below normal as far as the weather eye can see. The Ensembles show this lasting through the first week of May, at least…

Make it a great Tuesday and take care.
