A touch of winter on the way

Good Wednesday to one and all. We are dealing with another windy day as our fight between spring and winter continues. It’s spring now, but winter moves in for a brief visit Wednesday night and early Thursday.

The pattern continues to be very active and could produce a little snow around here from time to time. The first chance comes late Wednesday and early Thursday as a system zips across the Bluegrass State. Watch how the system turns into a major snowstorm along the East Coast:

That has a chance to put down some light accumulations Wednesday night and Thursday morning:

Here’s your regional radar to watch the action:

With lows dropping into the 20s, slick spots could develop on roads to begin the day. Highs Thursday afternoon will be in the upper 20s to low 30s, with lows by Friday morning dropping into the teens in some areas:

Euro 2

Southwesterly winds will quickly increase Friday as highs return to the 50s. That will set the stage for temps to surge well into the 60s this weekend:

That’s ahead of a cold front that could develop another line of showers and thunderstorms:

Euro 4

Energy cuts off in the southwest and tries to come out and merge with a northern branch system by the middle of next week. That could lead to an interesting storm system. If you’re a fan of winter, the GFS is your model starting with that system:

Enjoy your Wednesday and take care.
