Winter returns

Good Monday, everyone. Winter returned to the Bluegrass State on Sunday night with some of the biggest snowflakes I’ve ever seen. This is a sign of things to come, as things look rather wintry through the first half of March.

Monday’s weather will feature highs in the upper 30s to near 40, with a mix of sun and clouds. The pattern from this point only goes downhill.

Lower-than-normal temperatures are a given, but what about the snow chances? I see several possible snowstorms ahead, and the worry is for one or two of them to ramp up into something much bigger.

The first system rolls in later Tuesday and early Wednesday, and it might bring some snow to town. Here’s the NAM:


The European as a similar look of light snow during this time:


The same run of the European Model shows systems lined up in the southern stream as cold air continues to dominate the overall pattern.

Friday night:

Euro 2


Euro 3

March 5:

Euro 4

I don’t see any hope for an early spring, but I am optimistic that we can start to break out of this pattern during the second half of March. Better late than never, I suppose.

Enjoy your Monday and take care.
