From wintry to a warm-up

Good Tuesday to one and all. Many areas are waking up to a small taste of winter, with some flakes in the air and on the ground. This flirtation with winter won’t last very long, as a big warm-up is on the way by the end of the week.

A mix of rain and wet snow is falling across Central and Eastern Kentucky early today. The snow part of it might put down a quick coating in a few spots. This mess will quickly melt away as the precipitation works off to our east by late morning and early afternoon. Here’s your regional radar to track the action:

High temps today will rise into the upper 30s and low 40s, with a mix of sun and clouds. Temps will drop quickly into the low and middle 20s overnight as our skies clear. That will set us up for a chilly Wednesday, with highs in the 40s.

A big warm-up will engulf the central part of the country, and we will get in on some of these above-normal temps. Highs this weekend will soar well into the 50s and might hit 60. Check out just how much of the country will be warmer than normal:

That pattern doesn’t mean our weather will be all nice and rosy. I expect an increase in clouds and scattered showers from this weekend into early next week. The mild conditions should take us into the middle of next week before we go back into a much colder setup.

Have a great Tuesday and take care.
