Watching the weekend weather

Good Thursday everyone. The weather pattern is back to boring across the bluegrass state as things finally calm down. While it may be calm and quiet for the next few days, we do have some flakes to track later this weekend.

A weak cold front will drop in from the northwest later today. This front will be moisture starved and should only bring some clouds into the region. Highs today will be back into the middle 30s for most areas.

Friday looks cold and clear with highs in the low 30s.

A disturbance moves in late Saturday into Sunday and should bring snow showers and flurries with it. There could be some minor accumulations before all is said and done.

The pattern next week will feature some of the warmest air we’ve had around here in a few weeks. Thermometers may hit 50 degrees by the middle of the week.That’s when we are likely to see things turn very wintry around here with cold and snow chances galore.

The models are already going in that direction by the weekend of the 12th as they carve out a deep trough across the central and eastern part of the country…

Notice the bookend blocks showing up. One up the west coast and the other nudging into Greenland. That may try to become a fairly stable pattern that keeps our region locked into the cold with frequent storm chances as the southern branch of the jet stream fires up.

Make it a great Thursday and take care.
