Good Sunday to one and all. Our wild weather pattern is set to return to central and eastern Kentucky in the days ahead. This will likely lead us into a pattern ripe for another outbreak of strong thunderstorms to be followed by a bigger blast of winter.
Highs out there today warm into the upper 40s to low 50s with a partly sunny sky. Overall, today is a pretty good day for the end of February.
Showers return to the region on Monday as warmer air fights back in. A rumble of thunder is even possible by Monday night.
This sets the stage for another big plains storm system rolling toward the Ohio Valley by Wednesday. Heavy rain and strong thunderstorms will likely increase ahead of this low:
This signal has been pretty strong for a while and is definitely something for us to watch closely.
Much colder air then surges in here behind that system with a clipper trying to dive in here by Friday:
As that moves away, temps should warm quickly ahead of another surge of winter temps trying to push in late next weekend into early the following week.
It’s terribly ironic to see March looking more like winter than what we’ve actually seen this winter.
Have a great day and take care.
