Good Sunday to all my fellow weather weenies. Today is a good day to get an extra hour of daylight as mother nature is throwing us a gem. Temps may flirt with 70 degrees in many areas as a partly sunny sky rules the roost. This will all be going away in the week ahead as the old man tries to flex some muscle, again.
Gusty winds will accompany today’s blast of mild air and clouds will slowly increase. Some afternoon showers and thunderstorms will be possible across the west. Most of the rain won’t arrive hit central and eastern Kentucky until the overnight hours.
A strong cold front will slowly work through here Monday. Winds will continue to be very gusty as widespread showers continue along and ahead of the front. Temps will start to fall as the boundary moves through.
A wave of low pressure will develop along this front and keep the rain going into Tuesday morning across the eastern half of the state. It may get just cold enough for a few snowflakes as cold air continues to rush in here. This blast of cold continues to look impressive for the middle of the week…
There could be a few systems diving in from the northwest, delivering a few snow showers or flurries.
The pattern for the end of next week into the following week is an interesting one. A big bubble of mild air will develop across the southern plains as blocking intensifies across Greenland. That may set the stage for a big battle zone across our part of the world. Basically… it’s an ugly pattern that has a little more winter left in the tank.
Have a wonderful Sunday and take care.
