Good Super Bowl Sunday, everyone. Today’s big day looks pretty good as far as the weather is concerned. This tranquil weekend will soon be replaced by a big storm ready to blow into Kentucky over the next few days.
Before we get to that, let’s talk quickly about today’s weather. There’s a small chance for a touch of rain and snow this morning. That won’t amount to much as temps spike into the 40s with mostly cloudy skies this afternoon.
Rain arrives Monday and we could hear some thunder by Monday night. This is on the nose of warmer air sweeping in from the southwest, as a powerhouse storm comes together in the plains states. As that storm strengthens and heads into the Ohio Valley and Great Lakes, it will bring some wild weather our way:
Here’s a breakdown:
- Temps will spike into the 60s on Tuesday on that strong southwesterly wind
- Showers and thunderstorms will crank and some of those storms may be on the strong or severe side. The Storm Prediction Center has a slight risk for severe weather for much of Kentucky:
- Wind gusts Tuesday into Tuesday night can reach 40mph-50mph at times.
- As the front swings through, temps drop nearly 40 degrees by Wednesday morning. That’s when readings hit the 20s and likely stay there for the rest of the day. You can see that cold moving in:
- Some wraparound snows will be possible on Wednesday.
Once the cold moves away by early Friday, temps should soar once again later that day into Saturday. That will be ahead of another potent system that can bring round 2 of the spring verses winter fight:
Have a great Sunday and take care.
