A Pleasant Break In The Action

Good Sunday, everyone. As we spring forward with the clocks, I wanted to say a big thanks for all you guys have done for me and KWC. You all have been the backbone of this site for nearly 11 years and I just wanted you to know I appreciate each of you… Haters included.

As far as the weather goes, we are seeing a break in the action, but more another big storm is on the way later this coming week. Behind that, winter temps return for the second half of March.

Today is a windy day with highs topping out in the 50s for many, with some low 60s in the east.

The weather through Wednesday looks pretty nice, but temps take a small dip before ramping back up. We have a shot at 70 by the time we head into Wednesday and Thursday. That’s ahead of another potent plains storm system that brings more wind, heavy rain and another strong storms threat our way. Behind it, temps tank and winter tries to return…

As mentioned, that introduces more of a winter look to the setup…

This is a cold looking second half of March, leading to the potential for a few more shots of winter weather before spring sets in.

Unlike last year, this pattern isn’t likely to last through April. The CFS is giving us a warm look, but also a wet one…

Given the colder look from the Rockies into the Plains, that would imply an active severe weather setup in our region.

Have a great Sunday and take care.

    I’ll take a warm April anytime. Ready to go hiking at the Pinnacles. 🙂

    I appreciate everything you do, Chris. You are awesome!!!! On a side note, I’m glad this weather pattern isn’t planned to last into April. We’ll take the rain or whatever, as it comes.

    Hard to believe it’s been 11 years I’ve been here since day 1

    Eleven years ago I moved to central Kentucky, and I must say that I have enjoyed each and everyday since I’ve been here. I like the isolation and the quite and all the pleasures of the forest and all the plentiful wildlife. Chris, I appreciate all your hard work and reading and learning from your weather blog each and everyday. Worse thing you can do is get down on yourself. Don’t do this, as it only makes feeling sorry for yourself, and life is too short anyway. Just be the best you can be and be happy.

      Yesterday, we had showers almost all day long with a few bouts of lightning and thunder. Rainfall total was exactly one inch and today is looking to be a nice early spring day. I like the colder at the end of March and the warm April showers because they bring May flowers.

    Well, I am ready for garden weather. Above average temps in April is equivalent to at least May like weather so I can’t wait to see if the CFS forecast pans out! Although wetter than average is forecast, I will not complain if we have plenty of 70s and 80s for temps. Upper 60s in Harlan today!

    I’ll take a Wed or Thurs up to 70.
