Clouds return this weekend

Good Friday to one and all. Sunshine paid a long overdue visit to the Bluegrass State on Thursday, and it should be back today. Soak it up, because clouds push in again this weekend as temperatures finally get closer to normal. That sets us up for a very active pattern settling in for next week.

Today will feature partly sunny skies with highs in the low 40s in most areas. The normal high is 45 degrees in Lexington, so we will probably come up just short of that.

Saturday will see the clouds returning, with highs again in the low 40s. The NAM shows highs even lower than that:

The same model then goes on to show some sprinkles and light showers late Saturday night and Sunday:

The next storm system moves in late Monday into Tuesday. That brings rain our way and will be followed by much colder air by Tuesday night and Wednesday:

The models continue to point toward a much bigger storm trying to develop later next week and the following weekend. As expected, they are changing from run to run, but the European Model has a nice look for winter lovers:

It’s a super-busy weather pattern taking shape over the next few weeks. Throw in an increase in cold air, and we could be tracking multiple snow threats before the year is out.

Have a great day and take care.
