Happy Sunday, folks. Old Man Winter is holding on for dear life into this first weekend of March as we continue to see snowflakes and very cold temps. Thermometers are running WAY below normal and that trend will take us into the week ahead. That’s when our focus turns toward a storm system impacting our weather Tuesday and Wednesday.
Let’s start with where we are today. Thermometer readings will struggle into the upper 20s and low 30s for highs and that’s about 20 degrees below normal. Snow showers and flurries will gradually wind down with some rays of sunshine a possibility before the day is over.
You can follow along, here…
Monday will be another much colder than normal day with readings hitting the upper 30s as clouds roll in during the afternoon and evening hours. Those clouds are ahead of our next storm system that will bring rain and snow to the bluegrass state.
A weak area of low pressure will work into the state on Tuesday as cold air dives in behind it. A huge cutoff area of low pressure in the upper levels spins in behind this low as it gives way to a stronger low in the Carolinas by Tuesday night into Wednesday.
That generally spells rain for many and a mix for the north on Tuesday with snow taking over Tuesday night and Wednesday. A stripe of accumulating snow may set up during somewhere across the state at that point.
There is a silver lining behind this storm. Warmer winds may blow the 60s into town by next weekend. That will be a false start to spring, but I will take it.
I will have another update coming later today. Make it a wonderful Sunday and take care.
