Good Monday and welcome to another busy week of weather tracking. The pattern this week will throw everything at us but the kitchen sink. A burst of spring interrupts our run of arctic cold over the next few days and that means a dose of wildness.
A warm front continues to work northward across the region today. Scattered showers and gusty winds will be noted as temps warm toward the lower 50s. You can follow it all, here:
The really warm air moves in on Tuesday and it may send our highs toward records. Take a look at the setup:
Our afternoon temps Tuesday may hit 70 degrees across much of central and eastern Kentucky. Wind gusts of 30-40mph will be likely during this time.
That powerful cold front to our west will roll in late Tuesday night into Wednesday morning. A line of showers and thunderstorms will be likely along this front and some of the storms may become strong or severe. Regardless of thunderstorms, our winds may approach 50mph along and just behind this front.
Temps Wednesday will start near 60 and fall toward freezing by evening from west to east. That’s when some snow showers become likely. Here’s the progression on the NAM:
Arctic air will then dive in for Thursday and Friday and we will likely have a snow system or two to track.
Make it a great Monday and take care.
