Good Friday and welcome to March. A fickle month is starting out on a cold and snowy note across the bluegrass state. This colder than normal pattern is going to continue to carry us well into the new month and that isn’t good news for those looking for an early spring.
Rounds of snow showers and squalls will continue to work across our part of the world today. Light snow accumulations are a good bet, especially for those areas getting under a heavier burst. Here’s regional radar to track the flakes…
Temps will be in the low 30s for many areas, but gusty winds will make it feel much colder than that.
The weather for Saturday looks very similar to what we’re seeing out there today. On and off snow showers and squalls will make for another very wintry day. This will give us a polar opposite pattern compared to what was taking place a year ago.
Colder air will continue to push into the region this weekend with highs in the upper 20s and low 30s and lows hitting the teens by Sunday morning.
A storm system early next week has the potential to be a little interesting around here. It should take a west-east track just to our south and then really strengthen as it hits the east coast. The European Ensembles seem to have a good handle on this…
With the one year anniversary of the devastating March 2nd tornadoes upon us, I will spend today in Salyersville and West Liberty speaking with students about the tornadoes that ripped through those towns. I will be going live from downtown West Liberty from 4-6:30 this evening as we take a look back at this historic outbreak. If you’re in the area… drop by and say hello and share some of your stories from that day.
Have a great Friday and take care.
