Spring Starting To Kick In

Good Saturday, everyone. Our one and done shot of cold is pushing away, allowing spring to take control. This is looking more and more like a full-blown spring takeover of the pattern and it’s happening much sooner than normal. I know we already have lots of blooms showing up, but this is REALLY going to take off over the next few weeks.

Temps out there today are into the upper 40s to middle 50s with skies becoming mostly sunny. Don’t forget we Spring Forward tonight, so set those clocks up one hour before going to bed.

Sunday is amazing with sun and temps hitting the 60s. That extra hour of daylight hits at the perfect time. 🙂

The pattern for the next few weeks looks very mild and stormy for much of the country, including right here in Kentucky.

Starting Monday, we may get systems to move through here every couple of days or so. This show up on the EURO..

Monday/Tuesday

Wednesday

Next Weekend

The Following Monday

That’s an active setup and it could portend an active spring thunderstorms season.

I will have another update later today. Have a good one and take care.

    An active Spring thunderstorm season is something I wish would not happen. Does anyone out there think that an EF4 tornado that occurs in the early morning hours is a little odd ? In ” Tornado Alley ” or anyplace else, tornadoes of that strength have occurred in the late afternoon not in the early morning hours. Years back in Evansville, Indiana a tornado struck in the early morning hours taking many lives. This odd timing should be investigated in my opinion. I think many out there will agree that going forward with the time is ridiculous and unnecessary, I need that extra hour of sleep LOL. Have a great Saturday everyone.

      While a tornado of that strength at that time of evening is odd, its something that shouldn’t be considered an oddity or alarming. Tornadoes of any strength can happen any time of day or night. Its always about the available dynamics.

        Very good explanation Virgil.

        Just a few days ago, The Weather Channel said that the top three states (from lowest to highest) with the greatest number of night time tornadoes are Kentucky, Arkansas, and Tennessee.

        It wouldn’t be too surprising if Georgia, Florida, Alabama and Mississippi are also high on the list.

        Part of this may be because on average southeastern states experience their peak tornado season earlier in the year than, say, the plains states so there are fewer hours of daylight. Anyway, many of the “Super Tuesday” tornadoes of Feb 2008 (including in TN and KY) were after midnight. The year I was born (1984), Barneveld Wisconsin had an F5 tornado at something like two in the morning.

    Good Riddance to the winter that never existed.

    I like the extra daylight in the evenings. If anything leave it on that schedule all year. Not liking the every other day rain pattern we have been stuck in for what seems forever. Tough to get out and enjoy the outdoors without stretches of dry weather. The warmer temps do sound good.

    Yeah, that’s right, we get that extra hour in the evening to work in the yard or better yet an extra hour of fishing.
