Some winter for the weekend

Good Thursday to one and all. The March winds continue to blow across the Bluegrass State. While temperatures continue to run above normal, they are trending down. That trend might turn into a full-blown crash by the weekend as some winter shows up.

Highs Thursday will generally range in the low 60s with partly sunny skies. Cooler air continues to filter in from the northwest, with highs Friday mainly in the 50s.

A southern storm system develops as we head into the weekend. This has the potential to bring some rain and snow to our part of the world.

The models are starting this out Friday night and Saturday morning. The NAM during that time:

The NAM then tries to turn that up the coast with some light snow around Saturday night:

The snow map from that run:

NAM 4

That only goes through Saturday night.

The earlier run of the NAM has a snow map that looked like this:

The GFS snow map goes through Sunday night and looks like this:

Getting anything to stick is going to be a task this late in the season, but it has happened before. The setup on the European model has a definite winter look:

This is a system to keep a close eye on. It wouldn’t take much correction to get this to have a greater impact on our weather.

Make it a great Thursday and take care.
