A more active pattern taking shape

Good Wednesday, everyone. Our weather pattern is about to go from bitterly cold to hyperactive over the next few days. This means we probably have a lot of winter to go through as we roll into February.

The Bluegrass State starts the day in the deep freeze. Readings Wednesday morning will be below zero in many areas and then slowly rise through the day. We should top out in the upper teens to low 20s later Wednesday.

Thursday is when we may finally crack the freezing mark with a little increase in clouds. Those clouds are ahead of a messy system that rolls in for the weekend.

It looks like snow and rain on Friday… mainly rain Saturday… then a switch to some snow on Super Bowl Sunday. The European Model is laying down some snow that day…

The next system rolls in by Tuesday, and it’s one to keep a close eye on. It’s likely to be  a moisture-loaded system that can produce a lot of nasty weather in our region. The exact track of that storm will decide whether you get dumped on by heavy snow, heavy rain or both.

Here’s the latest GFS:

That could get ugly. I think another storm could follow that up a few days later, and it’s likely to be colder.

Buckle up for the wild ride that looks to be the month of February.

Take care.
