Warm weather leads to a big storm system

Good Sunday, everyone. We have another very mild day in store for central and eastern Kentucky. Above normal temps this time of year can often be accompanied by the threat for thunderstorms, and that’s just what we have in the days ahead. Some of those boomers could even become severe.

Temps today will be back into the low 60s for many areas with clouds slowly increasing. Showers develop and move in this evening and carry us into Monday morning. That action is along a weak cold front that quickly lifts back to the north as a warm front.

This sets the stage for a wild Groundhog Day Tuesday. Near record highs are possible on a strong southwesterly wind flow. Those winds will really crank by late in the afternoon and evening as a powerful storm develops to our west.

Sever thunderstorms with damaging winds and isolated tornadoes will be possible late Tuesday into Tuesday night. Watch the explosion of storms showing up on the models.

Please keep a close eye on this setup as we get closer.

Cold air presses in behind this front for the rest of the week into Super Bowl Weekend. In my last update, I said to watch the period from February 7-11 or a possible big winter weather system developing. The GFS must have been reading that post…

The stage is setup for wicked weather over the next few weeks, and the blog will keep you updated along the way.

I leave you with your Sunday tracking toys:

Make it a great Sunday and take care.
