A nice start to an ugly weekend

Good Friday, everyone.  We’re kicking off the weekend in fine fashion, with sunshine and mild temps across Central and Eastern Kentucky. Unfortunately, what you see is not what you are going to get. Showers are on the way for Saturday and Sunday.

Highs today will head toward 60 degrees in the north and into the low and mid-60s across the south. That’s above normal for this time of year.

Skies will be mostly sunny as southwesterly winds gust up.

Clouds will roll in later tonight, with temps holding around 50 degrees. These clouds are ahead of a cold front that will dive from the northwest. That front will put the brakes on and hang around through the weekend. A couple of waves of low pressure will develop along this front and roll eastward.

That will be followed up by a stronger cold front arriving Monday. Add it all up, and you can get some decent rain totals:

GFS Rain

Temps will be all over the place. Saturday will start in the 50s and then drop as the front moves through. Sunday will stay in the chilly 40s for St. Patrick’s Day. Monday will see the upper 50s surging in ahead of our cold front.

That front will the usher in another round of cold by Tuesday.


That’s a lot of colder air moving back in for the middle and end of next week.

Have a great Friday and take care.
