Good Thursday, folks. Milder winds are slowly kicking in out there, and this will blow a serious surge of spring into our part of the world. Mild weather will turn downright warm as we head into next week.
Highs on Thursday will be in the upper 40s to near 50, with partly sunny skies. Gusty winds might be the only weather complaint of the day.
Friday looks like a flat-out awesome weather day, with sunshine and highs in the low 60s:
The only drawback to the forecast comes later Saturday, with some scattered showers developing. This happens as a weak upper-level system passes through:
Highs Saturday will be in the 60- to 65-degree range and should really take off by Sunday. As skies become sunny, highs range from 65 to 70 in most areas.
Highs in the low to middle 70s then sweep in early next week:
There could be a shower or thunderstorm entering the picture by the middle of the week, and that might knock the temps down a few degrees. That could mean highs drop into the “chilly” upper 60s for a day.
No sweat; the 70s move back in later in the week ahead of a potent storm system:
It’s not too crazy to think about this pattern throwing an 80-degree reading somewhere across Kentucky.
The aforementioned storm will then move our way next weekend, wiping out our spring fling:
Winter is not dead. I keep trying to make this point, but it’s easy for people to get caught up in just how warm it has been of late. I get that. But, this isn’t a pattern that typically makes a seamless transition into “true” spring.
Have a great day and take care.
