Good Wednesday, everyone. We have a major weather change on the way to the Bluegrass State. Our spring fling is about to turn into another round of winter woes by the end of the week, and the change looks swift.
Highs Wednesday spike to about 70 degrees in many areas on a gusty southwesterly wind. That wind could stir up a shower or thunderstorm at any point. I will have your tracking tools in a bit.
Thursday is the day of real change, as a powerful cold front moves through. Check out the temperature spread showing up by the middle of the afternoon:
That is pretty amazing to see! A temperature drop of 20 to 30 degrees is likely in less than an hour as the front moves through. Widespread showers and thunderstorms will be likely, with the heaviest rains showing up across the north and west:
It might be cold enough for some snowflakes by late Thursday evening and Friday morning. Temps by then will be close to the freezing mark.
Another batch of light snow or flurries could zip in here later Friday as even colder air swings in. We may be in the teens by Saturday morning.
The overall pattern should slowly moderate into next week. That’s when we have to watch for a few more systems to affect our region. The rainfall numbers through next week show an increase from the map above:
Make it a great day and take care.
