Rain Before Winter Weather Chances

Good Monday, folks. Wet weather is increasing to kick off the week, but we have some winter weather heading our way later this week as we get ready to close our the month of February. Once into early March, the signs point toward milder temps settling back in.

Today’s rains will continue to move through and we could even hear a few rumbles of thunder. This will make for a pretty wet day for the entire region. Here are your tracking toys…

Showers linger into early Tuesday before things try to dry for a bit. Once we get into Wednesday and Thursday, much colder air sweeps in from the northwest with the potential for a period of light snow and then some snow showers. A couple of systems will then dive in from the northwest by Friday and Saturday and could bring light snow to parts of the region…

That’s a really cold way for February to come to a close, but this is the hand Mother Nature is dealing us.

Much milder air then moves in for the first week of March as we need to keep close tabs on what could be a potent storm system developing in the plains. This setup could bring some thunderstorms our way…

March is famous for some wild swings and those wild swings usually lead to an increase in precipitation. The two week precip anomalies from the GFS Ensembles show us above normal…

I will have updates later today, so check back. Until then, have a magnificent Monday and take care.

    Did Lexington’s BG airport thermometer get yanked and replaced?
    So far, the average temperature is running 0.5 degrees above normal, while most NWS observation sites are running at least 2 degrees above normal. In fact, the Kentucky Mesonet site in Fayette county is running warmer than BG airport for the month of February. Never thought I would see that happen. Maybe the ThermoGate issue can be put to rest now!
