Chilly Showers Work Through

Good Thursday, folks. We have a cold front rolling across the state on this first full day of spring and it’s bringing a little bit of ugly. Gusty showers and chilly temps are on tap for much of the region. As we head into the weekend, better weather moves in, but it doesn’t look to stick around long.

Let’s focus on today before we get to that weekend.

Highs may stay in the 40s for much of central and eastern Kentucky with gusty showers around. A few breaks may develop in the afternoon and that could fire up some convective showers or even a thunderstorm. I’ve seen that type of setup produce some soft hail. Here’s regional radar to follow the action…

Friday will find a shot of chillier air moving in, but it comes with only  a few clouds. Winds will continue to be gusty as temps reach the low 50s for many, with higher numbers west.

Saturday starts very cold with temps in the 20s, but ends with highs in the 50s with a gorgeous sky.

A few clouds will increase on Sunday as southwest winds increase ahead of our next system. Showers will develop across the west and roll eastward on Monday. This would bring another shot of colder air behind it…

Several other systems will roll across the country, bringing some major temperature swings our way. Check those swings out into early April…

I’ll talk more about spring and summer over the next few days. Have a good one and take care.

    On this date in history back in 1968, much of western KY, western TN and northern Mississippi were experiencing a big late March snowstorm that started on March 21 and finally ended a few days later. The Land Between the Lakes area of both Kentucky and Tennessee had around a foot of snow. Memphis had its second biggest single snowstorm on record with 16.5 inches.

    Interesting that a more southern city like Memphis has had its top two recorded snows neither in January nor February but in March. The #1 snow for Memphis is about 17 inches way back on March 17 1892 (the same storm gave Nashville about 21 inches which is the biggest snow for the Music City).

      I remember that snowstorm back in March 21,1968. I was in High School at that time in Washington, Indiana and we didn’t even receive a flake of snow from that storm. The only snowstorm I can remember that year was on February 2, where we received eight inches that didn’t even last more than a few days. I kept records that’s how I remembered.

    Just one year ago today, Louisville was blanketed with over 11″ of heavy, wet snow.
    A late year snow day for many counties.
