Winter to follow a spring tease

Good Tuesday, folks. We have one amazing weather day taking shape across the Bluegrass State. Sunshine and highs nearing 70 will cause many folks to think spring has finally arrived. Old Man Winter has other ideas. He crashes back in Wednesday.

Gusty winds will blow some clouds in as the day wears on. But we can’t complain too much about the weather we have now.

A storm system will roll across the state Wednesday and set the stage for a wild swing. Rain and thunder works in later Tuesday night and Wednesday morning. Temps during that time will be in the 50s in many areas. Winds will gust as temps crash from west to east. Afternoon temps will drop through the 30s and wind up in the 20s by early evening.

That sets us up for rain changing to snow:

Some light accumulations will be possible by Wednesday evening. Leftover snow showers and flurries will end Wednesday night as readings drop into the teens. Wind chill readings might be near zero to start the day Thursday.

Highs Thursday will stay in the 30s, and windy conditions will make it feel even colder.

We rebound toward the low 50s by Friday and Saturday. That’s ahead of another system that looks like trouble for late weekend and early next week:

Euro 2Maybe the luck of the Irish will help push that away from us on Monday, St. Patrick’s Day, because that system could bring rain and snow to the region.

Enjoy your day and take care.
