Good Monday to one and all. Temps out there today will be flirting with a record high as we go back into a super mild spring pattern. The same setup leading to this warm stuff will also lead us into a stormy look over the next few weeks.
Fog will start the day, but should lift later in the morning. That leaves us with partly sunny skies and temps nearing records in the low 70s. The record today is 72 degrees set last year.
Mild weather continues into Tuesday and Wednesday, but scattered showers and thunderstorms may come into play:
A potent storm system then develops in the plains states and works toward the Great Lakes and northern Ohio Valley on Friday. This could bring some big time thunderstorms to the region…
This storm is likely to setup a classic seasonal battle between spring and winter. The seasonal transition toward spring will be met with Old Man Winter firing deep cold shots into the Midwest and plains states. Kentucky may go back and forth between the two and that spells some busy times:
Big storm systems will fire up in the battle zone and that can bring lots of different conditions our way, based on each individual storm track. Severe weather and snow chances are there, depending on where each system goes. One thing is for sure, we are in the line of fire for heavy amounts of precipitation over the next few weeks. The European Ensembles precipitation show that flow right out of the western Gulf of Mexico:
Have a great Monday and take care.
