Good Thursday, folks. We are dealing with a gorgeous March weather day out there, but big changes are lurking for the weekend. A winter storm system will target parts of the state this weekend, with more winter weather on tap for early next week.
Let’s start with the good then focus on the bad. Highs on Thursday range from 65 to 70 with a mix of sun and clouds and gusty winds.
Clouds will quickly increase Thursday night as showers develop ahead of a strong cold front. That zips in early Friday with the potential for a snowflake to mix in:
Afternoon skies will clear, with highs in the 40s.
Our weekend system continues to target the southern half of the state.
The current runs of the European and GFS models are similar, with the greatest chance of snow across southern Kentucky into northern Tennessee. Here’s the European model:
The GFS is similar, although just a smidge farther north compared to its earlier run:
We aren’t done with winter after the weekend. This next system diving in late Monday and Tuesday continues to get my attention. This can put some snow on the ground for many people:
Make it a great day and take care.
