Good Tuesday, everyone. It’s been a heck of a March, as Old Man Winter is ruling the weather across Kentucky and surrounding areas. The winter “theme” continues to be with us as I look down the weather road. That doesn’t mean we won’t have a few spring-like days in there, but winter does not want to go away.
We have a strong northwesterly wind flow kicking in today and this will carry us through Wednesday. That means snow showers and squalls will be likely across the eastern half of the state. Thunder? Light accumulations are possible, with some local streaks of up to an inch possible.
Temps today and Wednesday will be hard pressed to get out of the 30s. Gusty winds make it feel even colder.
Thursday looks like a MUCH better day with highs heading toward the 50s with some sunshine. Take advantage of that because another system works in here on Friday. This may bring some light rain and mixed precipitation to Kentucky and may have another system right behind it…
After a very cold start to Saturday, temps rebound quickly and we may really mild it up for a few days. That may also come with the potential for some showers and storms into early next week, with colder air coming right back…
That’s a very ugly looking system.
As mentioned, colder air will then surge back in here by the middle of the week and that shows up well on the European Ensembles…
That doesn’t look to go away very quickly as the colder than normal look is also there as we head into the final week of March…
The same ensembles are also showing the potential for some… GULP… additional snow chances…
I will update things later today, but I leave with your tracking tools for the day…
