A Stormy Pattern Ahead

Good Saturday, folks. Our Easter Weekend is about as warm as you will ever find around this part of the world. The warm pattern looks to continue next week, but it will come with a stormy twist. We look to be heading into a very stormy setup over the next few weeks.

Highs today will range from the upper 70s to low 80s with a mix of sun and clouds. There is a small chance for a shower or storm…

Easter Sunday will feature a mix of sun and clouds with scattered showers and storms increasing later in the day. This is NOT going to be a washout and it is NOT going to rain all day. Not even close! The best chance for storms will come late afternoon into the evening. Additional showers and storms will carry us into early Monday.

The NAM is showing some heavy rain pockets during this time…

Rounds of showers and storms look common next week into the following week. It’s a setup that can deliver some strong to severe storms, with very heavy rains a possibility.

The next two weeks worth of rain from the GFS is impressive…

Have a great Saturday and take care.

    The NWS sure does its best to accentuate anomolies that involve warm weather. “The winter that wasnt” JKL dubbed it.

    Temperature yesterday got up to 84 at my place. Warmest so far this spring. It was really nice working outside, and with the cool nights, we don’t have to run the air conditioner. Hope the rain holds off till Monday. Have a great Saturday

    Tomorrow will mark 19 years since a 1998 severe wx outbreak which included several F3 tornadoes in Kentucky as well as Bowling Green’s destructive hail storm. There was also the well publicized downtown Nashville tornado and the so-called “Forgotten F5” in south-central TN.

    There was also a tornado at Cleveland TN. While “only” an F1, it still caused one fatality and it struck not far from where I was living during my teen years. The shock of it occurring while my family and I were unaware of it partly motivated me to learn more about weather and eventually to become a NWS SkyWarn storm spotter.

    Info from NWS Louisville about April 16 1998.
