Spring weather slowly moves in

Good Sunday to one and all. Clouds will slowly break across Central and Eastern Kentucky. As this is happening, spring weather is about to push into the region for the upcoming week. Milder temperatures could also bring rounds of showers and thunderstorms.

Highs Sunday will struggle to get into the upper 40s and low 50s. Winds will be a little breezy as the sun slowly appears.

Monday looks good with a mix of sun and clouds, and highs hitting the 60s.

The week ahead should be able to spit out a 70-degree high temperature or two:

The setup into next week has a very mild and potent look to it. A huge ridge of high pressure anchors itself across the southeastern coast. At the same time, a big upper level low spins slowly across northern Mexico and southern Texas.

The flow between these two will tap some deep tropical moisture. The models are indicating that this plume originates from the Pacific Ocean. It then picks up additional moisture from the Caribbean and Gulf of Mexico, and then heads right up the Mississippi River Valley:

That is absolutely wild to see for any time of year, let alone in early March. The result will be an increase in showers and thunderstorms, with the potential for repeat action that can lead to heavy rain. I don’t know exactly where that sets up, but we will really need to watch this look.

Make it a great Sunday and take care.
