Good Friday, folks. It’s an interesting weather day taking shape across Kentucky with the 60 degree temps and the potential for slushy snows settling in. That sentence actually sums up Kentucky weather pretty well. Beyond this, there’s another chance for some rain and snow by Sunday night. Whaaaaaaaaaat?
Highs today make a run at 60 in several areas with a mix of sun and clouds. Late day showers increase, with the rains becoming steady by the evening. That’s also when temps crash from northwest to southeast, leading to a band of snow taking over. This is likely to put down slushy accumulations for much of the region…
Some local 4″ amounts may still try to show up in the southeastern mountains. I will get a final call out later today.
Those numbers are still not set in stone as we track just how much moisture that low can throw back into the colder air. With temps dropping into the 20s late tonight, some slick roads may develop for a time.
Here’s a look at the current advisories and warnings…
Whatever falls will melt very quickly on Saturday, as the warm ground and the April sun take control. Temp rebound into the upper 30s and low 40s. Sunday morning lows can make a run toward 20 degrees in some of the colder valleys. Ouch.
Our next system rolls in here very quickly by late Sunday into Sunday night. That will bring another round of rain and snow across the state…
Light accumulations will be possible during this time. It’s difficult to really put into perspective how rare it is to be talking about back to back snow systems in April.
The first half of next week will continue to run well below normal, but things improve greatly by the end of the week. Temps may hit the 70s during this time. That said. I’m already picking up on a strong storm threat a few days later.
I will update things today, so check back. Make it a good one and take care.
