Good Wednesday, folks. A seasonal brand of cold is back in the Bluegrass State and will hang around for the rest of the work week. All of that changes in a big way this weekend as temps get set to soar.
Highs today will be in the low and middle 30s, with mainly cloudy skies spitting out a few snow flurries.
The numbers recover some Thursday, as gusty winds increase ahead of another cold front. This boundary slides in early Friday, with the potential for some snow showers and flurries. The GFS shows this well:
This leads us into the weekend and the big warm-up. Highs hit the 50s on Saturday and could flirt with 60 by Sunday. Winds will be very gusty, and those gusts will really increase early next week as a powerful storm rolls our way. This could put us in the line of fire for high winds and thunderstorms as it rolls through:
That’s the kind of front that can have a 40-degree temperature drop behind it. That also introduces a very cold pattern into the country:
In the meantime, let’s focus on the warmer air on the way for the weekend.
Make it a wonderful Wednesday and take care.
