Watching the weekend weather

Good Thursday, folks. Our frigid winter rolls on with more well below normal temperatures across Kentucky. This looks to carry over to March and should be joined by several winter weather chances.

It’s the one arriving late in the weekend and early next week that’s getting a lot of attention. More on that in a bit. Let’s focus on the weather between now and then, first.

Today is another sunny and cold day with highs in the upper 20s and low 30s. Gusty winds will make it feel even colder than that. A weak front slips in this evening with just a few clouds and gusty winds.

Even colder air comes in behind this by Friday morning. Readings could drop to near 10 degrees, but the wind chills may be much colder. Look at some of the numbers coming from the GFS:


Temps will quickly moderate as the day wears on and we should crack the freezing mark during the afternoon. That’s when we get clouds to increase and those clouds could produce a bit of light snow during the evening and early Saturday.

After a 40 degree day Saturday, things get interesting late this weekend. That’s when a front stalls out across the region and allows for low pressure to develop along it. Depending on where this low tracks, we could be talking about rain, snow, ice or a combo of the three across our region.

Here’s how the setup looks from 4 days out:


Whatever comes of it… another arctic blast comes in by the middle of next week.

Have a great day and take care.
