Tracking milder air and scattered showers

Good Friday to one and all. The milder air continues to push into central and eastern Kentucky today and that’s a sign of things to come for the weekend. While the air will be mild, it may also spawn a few showers across our part of the world.

A warm front will work in from southwest to northeast today and a shower or two will be possible along this boundary. The highest chance will be across the southern half of the area. Here’s what you need to track the weather:

Current temperatures

Saturday looks like a pretty nice day with partly sunny skies and a small shower threat. The chance for showers will increase for Sunday… especially early in the day. We may actually dry it out by those afternoon egg hunts.

How about temps? The GFS has shows some normal late March air:

GFS 2

A stronger cold front will sweep in here by Monday afternoon and evening. This will bring a round of rain and snow into the region and introduce us to another shot of January Temps.

Highs by Tuesday should stay in the 30s with lows in the 20s.

Milder temps may show up for the second half of next week. That matches up well with a breakdown of the blocking pattern we’ve been seeing since mid February. One of the signals we look at is the NAO and it is forecast to FINALLY go positive later in the week:Euro

That should give us a more normal temperature pattern for the middle of April.

Make it a great day and take care.
