Winter makes a big return this week

Good Sunday to one and all. We’re putting the wraps on a gorgeous late February weekend here in the bluegrass state. Be sure to get out there and soak up the nice stuff we have out there today, a prolonged blast of winter is just around the corner.

Temps today will make a run at 50 degrees under mostly sunny skies. This will make for one heck of a nice day to get outside and enjoy.

Low pressure will wrap up across the plains states later Monday and this will send an increase in clouds our way. Some late day showers and thunderstorms will be possible on a gusty southwesterly wind. Those winds will REALLY crank Monday night into Tuesday as the low works our way.

This storm is being pushed by some serious cold air:

Tuesday is the day of change as the cold air surges in. Rain will mix with snow later in the day and that snow will become pretty widespread for the middle and end of the week:

That is one strong northwesterly flow and I suspect much of the state may be covered in snow before the week is over. Temps will fall each day from Wednesday into the weekend, when highs may not make it out of the 20s. Gusty winds will make it feel even colder than that.

That pattern is likely to persist into the first full week of March.

Have a great Sunday and take care.
