Tracking A Calm Weekend

Good Saturday, folks. It’s a fairly calm and decent weekend in progress across the bluegrass state. This seasonal chill looks to last into next week, but a few systems will try to crash the party. Those systems look fairly weak, but the pattern is showing signs of throwing bowling balls at us in the next few weeks.

Temps today are mainly in the upper 40s to low 50s, but with a mostly sunny sky.

Sunday looks very windy with temps spiking a few more degrees compared to today. Clouds will increase by the afternoon and evening and we could see a shower or two develop Sunday night. That’s with a weak cold front dropping in from the northwest and it drops the temps again by Monday.

Another system dives in here by the middle of the week, but it still looks like it will miss the connection with a system off the southeast coast…

Temps after that system will rebound VERY quickly and could reach 70 next weekend.

I mentioned bowling balls coming at us in the next few weeks. Those bowling balls will be in the form of systems ejecting from the west and rolling across the country…

Systems like that mean some wild temp fluctuations, with mild air ahead of them and colder air behind them. With those temp swings, rounds of rain and storms would be noted. That could set the stage for additional severe weather chances.

Make it a great Saturday and take care.

    I look forward to a fairly dry week for a change:). Yes, I wish it was a tad warmer than 50s for highs, but for March, I want complain as we all know it will be hot and humid in the near future. We are quickly running out of long cool stretches with cool spells getting shorter in April and about gone completely after early May. Enjoy the dry!

    Tree are blooming nicely here. Spring is in the air and I am excited about it. We have these cold spells, but they won’t last long.

    Trees and shrubs remain dormant here in the hills of central Kentucky due primarily to elevation in my area. However, it looks like the Red Maples are about to bloom. The soil is drying out too. Soon it will be Gardening Time.

      Been in full bloom in Harlan, Bell and Knox counties for over a week now down here!

      • Schroeder says:

        Terry is it the early blooming ornamental trees such as Forsythia, Flowering Peach and Bradford Pear ? I hope the Peach and Apple crops don’t get frozen by a late freeze in April.

        • Terry says:

          Right now, I have seen Maples, Bradford’s and forsythia for over a week in full bloom. Some real pears, peaches, plums are starting this week but apples and cherries not yet. Willows were green but that first strong cold snap March 1st weekend killed them out…they will come back soon.
