Spring Shows Signs Of Life This Weekend

Good Wednesday, everyone. Snow showers and squalls are pulling away from the region early today, leaving us with a little better weather for a few days. Even as the overall pattern for the next few weeks skews toward colder, spring is showing some signs of life this weekend.

Before we get to that, let’s start with what’s going on out there today. Slick roads may start our Wednesday, especially across the eastern half of the state. The flakes will quickly move east around daybreak, but some flurries may still fly in the far east…

Temps out there today will be in the 20s to start and upper 30s and low 40s to end. Temps in the west will be a little milder.

Thursday looks REALLY good with temps hitting the 50s under a mostly sunny sky. Western Kentucky will see the 60s.

The setup from there will be pretty active, with a healthy temperature swing on the way. The system coming in Friday into early Saturday will be a chilly shower maker, and may even begin with a mix…

As that system goes through, it’s actually being pushed by a surge of spring temps for the weekend. We may be able to string together three pretty mild days in a row. Watch how the chilly goes to mild on the GFS…

That’s a setup I originally talked about developing, then I backtracked a little the past day or so, but I’m back on #teamspring. 🙂

Showers and some thunderstorms come in early next week, ahead of a system that tries to bring winter back in here by Tuesday and Wednesday…

Here’s hoping the weekend temps actually pan out before we get back into that ugly pattern.

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

      Working on 2 inches here in Harlan (valley).

        Terry, glad that you and others in eastern Kentucky are finally receiving some accumulating snows. It’s about time right ? I hope that we do not get back to that rainy pattern and the potential for more river flooding. We need to stay cool and dry through mid- April. Everyone have a great day.

        • Schroeder says:

          This morning we received about a half inch of snow and the temperature is a cold twenty four degrees. These cold temperatures are keeping the trees dormant, so maybe we will have apples and peaches this coming growing season ? Keep a good thought.

          • Terry says:

            I will try to get an official measurement before I go to work…looks like more than 2 inches and still pouring at the moment but should be ending soon…yipppie…biggest snow of the year…hmmmm, so far!??

            On Ground Hog’s day the old saying goes : If it’s clear and cold, which it was this year, we will have a second Winter. Look at all the snow that’s fallen in the Northeast recently after a very mild February. Let’s give the ” little guy” some credit for calling this second Winter.

    Got our last/first “snow day” here in Tennessee. We’ve used 12 days for ice, floods, and sickness. Finally, Day 13 is an actual snow day. Ahhh, better late than never, I suppose. It is beautiful outside.

    • c-BIV says:

      Yikes, you going to be in school until July?? Lol

      • TeacherMomOf2 says:

        No, we have 13 days built in so we won’t be losing any vacation time…..yet. I’m seeing the possibility of snow next week so I guess we will worry then but of course, they can take Spring Break if needed.

  3. jreeves says:

    Na… those snow days are built into the schedule. We’ve used all 13 of ours too. We don’t have to make up any days unless we go past that 13 day mark.

  4. Terry says:

    Best average on level surface was 2.75 inches! I did have 2 measurements at 3 inches but more at 2.75. Due to yesterday evening’s warmth, some melting occurred before dark so probably had a good 4 inches fall.

  5. Mike S says:

    For the meteorological winter season(Dec-Feb), Lexington recorded only 7.6″ of snowfall. The meteorological spring season began March 1 and Lexington has already recorded 9.8″, not only beating out the winter season, but good enough for the 9th snowiest Spring season on record.

  6. Schroeder says:

    I will not give the total snowfall for the winter till I know when Spring is really here. Spring will likely be late this year, due to solar phase.
