Good Tuesday, folks. There is no shortage of busy weather to talk about for the bluegrass state. We have several systems lined up to take aim at the region, with a lot of rain falling in the coming days. Eventually, this pattern takes on more of a wintry look.
Scattered showers and some thunderstorms are out there today, but it’s not going to rain all day. Winds will be gusty with temps in the 60s.
We go get one day break in the action on Wednesday. This will lead to slightly chillier air before another surge of mild and storms by Thursday. Locally heavy rains carry us into Friday.
Another massive system then makes a run at us later this weekend into early next week. This huge upper level system is likely to spawn a powerful storm system right on top of the region:
This can lead to high winds and heavy rains at the beginning, with a potential transition toward some winter stuff under the low by Monday:
Cutoff lows can get a little wild and this one has some potential to do just that.
The next week can unleash another 2″-4″ of rain across the bluegrass state. This is pretty crazy.
I’ve also been talking about how the cutoff system likely gets the ball rolling toward another back loaded winter with cold and snow. Well, here’s what the Euro shows following that upper low by the middle of next week:
Given the block showing up over the top, watch for that system, similar to the one this weekend, to trend farther south.
The ensembles 5 day temp average to end January:
Have a great day and take care.
