Good Saturday and welcome to the weekend. Thankfully, our weather is looking much improved from what we had on Friday. A fast moving winter storm dumped ice and snow across much of the state, causing hundreds of accidents.
The sun returns today, but this will do little to warm us up. Highs will run in the mid and upper 20s across most of central and eastern Kentucky. Sunday will see readings going above the freezing mark as late day clouds increase.
Those clouds will be ahead of a major warm up. Temps by Monday will head toward 50 degrees and by Tuesday, thermometers may flirt with 60. The mild air will come with a price as showers and thunderstorms increase.
Another arctic cold front will sweep in from the northwest on Wednesday. The clash of air masses shows up very well on the GFS:
Temps may drop some 30 degrees in just a few hours as that front blows through the bluegrass. The European Model gives us a nice look at just how much arctic air dumps in here for the end of the week:
That setup may produce more winter weather around here as we usher in the month of February.
Have a great Saturday and take care.
