Milder temps come with a stormy price

Good Thursday, everyone. It’s a much milder pattern taking hold for the next several days, but it’s coming with a wet price. It’s not a total washout, but rounds of showers and thunderstorms will take aim at the region through the weekend and into early next week.

Thursday’s showers and thunderstorms should be fairly scattered, but keep the umbrella to be safe. Highs will head into the mid- and upper 60s in many areas, with 70 possible.

Here are your Thursday rain trackers:

Showers and storms will increase as we head into Friday. This happens ahead of a weak cold front dropping in from the northwest. This action could affect some high school football playoff games across the region.

Speaking of football, leftover showers and storms will linger into the weekend. I have my UK poncho ready to roll for the Cats and Rebels on Saturday at Kroger Field. I’m not expecting wall-to-wall rain, but it just takes one shower or storm to cause problems.

A strong cold front moves in with showers and storms on Monday:

That front then puts the brakes on, allowing for the potential for very heavy rain to setup on top of us. The setup features a ton of cold air across the northern half of the country into Canada and a warm pattern across the south:

A lot of rain may fall across the state next week. The European Model is blowing up:

This wet pattern has been well telegraphed for a long, long time.  Our region is likely to be the target for some big rain and snows through the upcoming winter.

Make it a great day and take care.
