Chilly Pattern Doesn’t Want To End

Good Thursday, everybody. After a one day break in the colder than normal pattern, the chill is back in the air. It’s a chill that won’t be in a big hurry to leave as we continue with our not so spring-like April. As a matter of fact, the setup for next week is looking a little ugly. Blah.

Let’s start with today and the potential for sprinkles or flurries. The best chance is across the northern and eastern parts of the state this morning…

That action moves away with highs hitting the upper 40s east and middle 50s west. Winds will still be gusty, adding an extra chill to the air.

Speaking of a chill, temps may drop back into the 20s by Friday morning for another freeze. The rest of Friday looks really, really good with highs in the upper 50s and low 60s across the state. Sunny skies continue.

Saturday looks to feature clouds on the increase with temps between 60 and 65. The forecast period from Friday into early next week is still a little murky. A bowling ball area of low pressure works across the south, but may get close enough for some rains…

Temps are very tricky. Outside of the rain and clouds, temps will be deep into the 60s. Under the clouds and rains, temps stay in the 50s.

You can see how same low tries to merge with a deepening trough diving into the country by the middle of next week. That’s not exactly a very pretty look as we get set to close out April, not that it’s any different from the rest of the month.

The milder air will continue to make some intrusions in here through the first few days of May, leading us back into a stormy setup. That shows up on the GFS rainfall map…

Make it a terrific Thursday and take care.

    We’ll this weather is certainly different than most springs this has been the slowest start we’ve ever had to get started planting here in nw ky ground temps been much to cold to plant corn or soybeans and way to wet to the only thing I will say is it has keep a lid on severe weather season compared to normal just hope this summer it don’t get to 100 and never rain again

    Thanks Chris for the update. Yesterday, we got a lot of work done and the weather was perfect, reminded me of the weather one would experience in northern California. Have a great day everyone.
