Nice Weather Starts A Busy Week

Good Monday, everyone. A nice spring day is in store for the region, but there’s still quite a bit of ugly on the way this week. No less than three systems are on the way between now and Saturday. All of this continues to skew our temps much cooler than normal. Blah, blah, blah.

Temps out there today are generally in the 60s with a mix of sun and clouds. Winds will be gusty ahead of a weak cold front dropping in tonight and early Tuesday. That should be able to touch off a few showers and storms…

Winds will be gusty as a brief shot of chilly air slides in. This could bring another frost or light freeze by Wednesday morning…

Two bowling ball looking storm systems look to roll right on top of us from Wednesday night through Sunday. Both of these bring rain and a few thunderstorms into the region. There’s excellent agreement among the models…




This keeps the rest of the month skewing cooler than normal and that’s likely to now continue into early May. As a matter of fact, there’s a good chance for this to be a top 10 coolest April on record across parts of our region.

This appears to be a full-blown change in the overall hemispheric pattern we’ve been in for the better part of the past 4 years. Does it have staying power? We shall see.

Have a great day and take care.

    Those storm tracks would be great if it was January.

    This cool pattern will not last much longer.

    IDK but will I have to issue a RIP spring….sure hope not, hope Jeff is right!

      I don’t know either. NOAA says that a continuation of an ENSO-neutral cycle is likely through the Summer 2020. A 65% guess in my opinion. I just hope we do not have to issue a “RIP Winter” in mid- January 2021. However, recently the Polar Jet has moved farther south and is phasing with an active Subtropical Jet which is why the deep south has been getting more severe weather than usual in my opinion as a “Arm Chair Meteorologist.” Adding to the above a “Blocking High Pressure System” has formed in the upper levels over the Great State of Alaska bring us our colder than normal April. Another frost / freeze is forecast Wednesday morning for central Kentucky. UGH !

    Does that change in the hemispheric pattern suggest a more drought-prone setup going forward?

  5. C Davis says:

    I’ll take 65 and sunny all the way through May…better than 45 and rainy….or 38 and rainy.

  6. Chris Mercer says:

    Beautiful day today. Full sunshine, light winds. Opened up the blinds and heated my house up a bit. It could stay this way all year long and I would not have a complaint!

    the cooling trend lasting into may is the most depressing thing ive read today. I desperately need to move to a warmer climate. only if I could afford to.
