Good Tuesday to one and all. We are dealing with a couple of systems affecting the region over the next few days. These will bring a few showers that introduce a blast of chilly air. If you’re fan of spring, no worries; it comes back in a big way this weekend.
Our day starts with a slight chance for light rain and light snow in the north, but that quickly moves away.
Our southern system then zips eastward, bringing some showers across the southern half of Kentucky. Farther north, the chance is smaller, with a mix of sun and clouds. Highs should range from the upper 40s to low 50s:
Winds will be gusty as colder air then filters in behind a cold front overnight. Highs Wednesday should be in the upper 30s to near 40, with a snow flurry possible.
That cold will not hold and will get booted out of here very quickly. Highs by Friday might hit 60 degrees, and it’s up, up and away from there.
The only drawback could come Saturday, with enough moisture to create a shower or two:
Highs will hit the 60s Saturday, then surge toward the 70s for Sunday and Monday. That happens with a big ridge of high pressure into the region:
Record highs could be threatened during this time.
The jet stream takes a big dip in the west, and that trough rolls eastward into the middle of next week. Several models now cut off that upper level system, instead of bringing the full trough in here:
If that is indeed the case, it would lead to unsettled weather, with showers and strong storms, but the mild weather would continue.
Have a terrific Tuesday and take care.
