A Few Evening Thoughts

Good evening, folks. I wanted to drop by for a quickie update on the system coming our way for the weekend. This still looks like a high impact system across Kentucky and surrounding areas.

There are no real changes to how this plays out. I continue to grow a little more concerned about the potential for a few severe storms on Saturday. With or without thunderstorms, we are facing a true high wind threat across the region.

The new EURO continues to spit out some alarming wind gusts…

The greatest threat for general flooding is across western Kentucky, but the flash flood risk looks a little greater area wide as the Saturday storms roll through.

Record high temps may reach 70-75 across areas of central and eastern Kentucky. Wow!

Another system looks to move our way by late Monday or Tuesday. Can we find any kind of change to this overall pattern? The models go back and forth on this potential,  but the Euro and Euro Ensembles are changing it up.

Take a look at the arctic air appearing on the Euro late next week…

Wind Chill

The Euro Ensembles are rearranging the whole pattern…

Enjoy the rest of your evening and take care.

    It is interesting and fun to look at but the EURO has been terrible this winter. Less than 96 hours ago, the EURO had Harlan around 7 inches of rain and now a half inch with the rain axis 400 miles west of me for this weekend.

      But realtive to normal and during our coldest part of winter could spell problems. We are def overdue for cold and snow and I have said all along the worst of winter will be mid January to March. Just don’t want ICE and we are moving to that set up. This looks to be a east west movement and that won’t be good for Northern part of the state. Of course they is IF this cold air even occurs.

    It has to eventually go to at least a few days of cold weather. We have had above average highs for nearly three weeks now and look to add at least another week to that. The law of averages says that it has to get at least closer to normal before winter is over..

      Maybe a 1993 March Super Storm kind of year. I know, chances are about 0% but it will likely happen again, and man we are over due and deserve it. I am not crazy about March snows but would gladly take a hit after this horrible drought.

        Terry, you’re beginning to sound a lot like me. I would rather have snow, but even an ice storm is starting to look nice to me. (As long as it’s like the 2009 one where we-at least at my house and on my street then-did not lose power. Cable tv, yeah, but that’s another issue.)But then again, we just moved a couple of months ago and we have this nice hill on our street right before our house, so maybe not ice….lol! (Hey-I’m speaking out of desperation here!)

        My local forecast hasn’t the slightest mention of cold for the next week. I have highs from the mid 50’s to mid 70’s for the entire period. And the long range thru early February had warm/wet. I would like to see Euro turn out correct. But Chris said a day or two ago he just didn’t see any change in the pattern.

    Yeah yeah on the Euro, I still some cold but not that cold and it only last a day or two, Will this pattern change, Well of course at some point it will just don’t see it yet… YET!!!!!
