Watching the weekend

Good Friday, everyone. Old Man Winter hit parts of Kentucky with a serious overachiever of a snowfall on Thursday. A section of Eastern Kentucky picked up as much as 8 inches of wet snow. Other areas of our region had nothing on the ground. Wow!

Now, we focus on the weekend, and the potential for spring to really kick in next week.

Leftover flakes will be around early Friday, with temps in the low 30s. Skies will slowly break this afternoon, with highs in the low 40s.

Another system moves in early Saturday and could bring a brief period of a light mix:

NAM

Miler air comes in during the afternoon, with highs in the low 50s. Another shower or two will be possible then.

This weekend looks windy Sunday, with highs in the 50s. That sets the stage for a huge surge of springtime air and conditions next week. This pattern can also turn very stormy:

GFS 3

That setup is likely to bring rounds of thunderstorms our way next week. The models continue to advertise the potential for very high rain totals over the next week and change:

GFS Rain

Make it a great Friday and take care.
