A little winter for the weekend

Good Friday, everyone. We have one more very nice day before Old Man Winter pays a quick visit to the region. That’s right, some rain and snow is on the way for the next couple of days. Overall, this looks like a very busy pattern ahead.

Highs Friday will reach the upper 50s and low 60s in many areas. Skies will stay partly sunny, with afternoon clouds increasing from west to east.

The models continue to bring rain and snow to the area late Friday night and Saturday. The high-res NAM highlights Northern Kentucky for the most likey chance:

The NAM hits this same area and shows the additional snowflakes into Sunday:

The GFS is a littler farther east and northeast with the snow threat for Saturday, but it has another band of snow zipping in on Sunday

This is a nasty weekend on tap for much of the region. There is the potential for some areas to have it snow hard enough to overcome the melting process.

A hard freeze is likely Sunday night and  Monday morning. Temps rise quickly by Wednesday and Thursday as a very strong storm system approaches from the southwest. Heavy rain and strong thunderstorms are both showing up on the GFS and European:

Beyond this, we are likely to see additional systems that can produce thunderstorms and additional shots of winter weather.

Make it a fantastic Friday and take care.
