Good Saturday to one and all. The final day of February is upon is and it will start with single digits for some areas… again. It’s a fitting way to wrap up one of the coldest and snowiest Februaries on record here in Lexington.
March rolls in like a lion on Sunday with the first of 3 active weather systems to impact our region. A wintry mix and rain will push in early in the day and continue through Monday as temps oscillate. The Canadian and European Models show the areas with the best chance at picking up on the wintry stuff…
The system that follows that up will bring much more of a heavy rain threat with some thunder possible Tuesday into Wednesday. The models are backing away from the heavy rain just a bit, but we will still have to watch for enough to cause some high water problems.
Another arctic front swing in late Wednesday into Thursday with a wave of low pressure along it. A HUGE temp drop is likely in just a matter of hours and that’s when we may see a decent shot of winter weather. Watch the increase in the winter precipitation forecast on the same models from above…
Take those maps with a grain of salt from this far out. I’m just showing them to illustrate the potential winter weather aspect as we go through next week.
Arctic air will follow up whatever we end up getting. If we can put down additional snow and ice accumulations like the European Model is showing, then temps can get out of control again…
Happy first week of March!
Make it a great Saturday and take care.
