Good Saturday, everyone. Our weekend is off and running on on a better note than how the past week ended. We have an increasing amount of sunshine out there today as temps hang around the normal mark. Enjoy the day… big changes are lurking as old man winter fights back.
Skies today will become partly sunny with highs in the middle 40s for most of the region. Milder air will push in on Sunday and this should boost temps well into the 50s on a gusty southwesterly wind.
The mild up is ahead of a strong cold front that blows in late Sunday night and Monday. Widespread showers will push into central and eastern Kentucky before Sunday wraps up. Here’s a look at the progression of the rain from the NAM Model:
Wind gusts of 30mph or higher will be possible as the cold front enters the region. That will go along with locally heavy downpours that last into Monday morning.
The cold air will slowly seep in from the northwest and we will have to watch for a possible storm system moving our way by the middle of next week. Several models have been trying to spit out some snow around here. The GFS continues to show a glancing blow:
This begins a very wintry pattern around here. The next system to keep an eye on will dive in from the northwest by Friday or Saturday. That one may spawn a decent sized storm somewhere around us.
Have a great Saturday and take care.
