Good Thursday, everyone. We have a big blast of winter air taking up residence across the Bluegrass State. This taste of winter will last all of one day before spring surges back in for the weekend.
Our day starts with some light snow and flurries, with temps in the 20s. Watch for a slick spot or two on area roads, especially bridges and overpasses. Afternoon sunshine takes over, with highs ranging from the upper 20s to the low 30s:
Temperatures Thursday night will drop into the teens for much of the region:
That cold gets wiped out by Friday afternoon as southwesterly winds kick into high gear. That means temps take off and could hit 50 to 55 before the day is over.
That sets us up for another spring fling for the weekend. Highs should easily hit the 60s:
Saturday could feature a scattered shower or thunderstorm, with an increased chance of showers and storms by the end of Sunday. That’s when a cold front drops in from the north:
Chilly air comes in behind, with cold air lurking just to our north. Energy from the southwestern part of the country then ejects northeastward early next week and tries to merge with the cold from the north:
We will need to keep a close eye on that trend. Have a great day and take care.
