Some Evening Thoughts

Good Monday evening. The wild weather ride will kick into high gear over the next few days as a powerful cold front moves across the bluegrass state. Here’s a look at what to expect:

- Near record high temps Tuesday as many areas hit the upper 60s to around 70 degrees.

- Wind gusts of 30-40mph will be possible during the day.

- The cold front swings eastward Tuesday night and Wednesday with a squall line of thunderstorms along it. This will set the stage for the potential for severe thunderstorms and damaging winds. The Storm Prediction Center shows the threat level:

- Temps Wednesday will start in the 60s and drop into the 30s during the evening.

- Snow showers and flurries will be possible Wednesday night into Thursday.

- A couple of light snow makers will work in Friday into Saturday as arctic cold temps take hold.

Have a great evening and take care.

    Another low depressing outlook.

    Thanks CB!

    Looks like north Richmond might have a shot of busting past 1″ of snow with two light snow makers ;) I did not think it was “possible” to have a lower total than last winter, but the trend seems to support that it is very possible.

    Boo on result trends!

    • Chris Mercer says:

      Yeah, I am glad CB called them “light snow chances” in this outlook. Light can mean a dusting to two inches in my book. We have had 4-5 inches so far this year In Lawrenceburg. Had 7-8 inches last year but most was on March 5. Far cry from the 20 inches in 2010-2011 and the 25 inches in 2009-2010!

      • BubbaG says:

        I would rather have nothing than accident inviting 1″ and 2″ events. That and the ice are only good for that IMO.

        We need enough snow to slow folks down and also to make snow people :) Probability of us getting that kind of snow this winter equals :(

        • Chris Mercer says:

          Ice doesn’t slow down people. I drove from Lawrenceburg to Lexington in the worst of the ice on Friday. I was going at 45, like most others, but you had the 2-3 morons who thought they could drive 80!

    uppers 20/low 30s s and lows in upper teens is not ARTIC AIR that just my thoughts though. BAILEY luv yea but teens for high and single digit Lows, now that bee ARTIC AIR.

  4. rolo says:

    once again CHIN up posters, if u cant enjoy 60s next 2 days u nbeed just quit,

    not depressing, u could be sick or dead, now thats depressing.

    winter is what it is now, and until we have a BIG OVERALL PATTERN CHANGE then it is what it is. BE HAPPY!! hug ur friend, ur momma and ur daddy etc because it could be ALOT worse than 60s degrees then few furries and 30 degrees.

    see u all

  5. Bob says:

    No one else is giving snow until Saturday? What gives?

  6. Lincoln says:

    It’s going to rain a lot, winter isn’t coming. Get your kids an umbrella, there going to need it. Get excited for bugs, this summer will be full of them. Hot and humid with a splash of water.

  7. Cosmokramer says:

    I see the Friday system has moved into Saturday now and the storm has been downgraded to an Ackerman…”light snow maker”.

    Can’t make snow out of thin air as much as we would like to see it, but I applaud Mr. Bailey’s efforts in making us believe the way we did when we were kids.
    That being said however, the winter of 2012 will be forgotten as the Winter of Embellishment

  8. Ben in Lexington says:

    I love this blog. God bless you Mr Bailey for donating your time,since you offer this as a free resource to all of us. Entertaining and educational. Makes the winter blues melt away.

  9. Weatherdadof2 says:

    Light snow makers lovely through the weekend, but let’s have a good one Sunday night to extend the weekend….just saying….

  10. Coach foley says:

    Little more rain than I expected today here in lily today hope it holds off tomorrow so we can enjoy some 60′s before a some snow ?

  11. Woodsman says:

    98″ of snowfall this season, no low snow totals here!

  12. Danny says:

    Quit worrying about the snow. The potential severe thunderstorms has a huge potential of wide spread wind damage. The wind field with this system very late tomorrow night is off the charts. These storms could easily produce 70 to 80 mph winds at the surface.

  13. Mike S says:

    Watch due out anytime now, mainly for western KY.

    Winds expected 55-65 mph near Louisville betw 3:30 and 4:30am, according to latest High Resolution Rapid Refresh model.
