Good Saturday to one and all. We have a very interesting Easter Weekend kicking off across central and eastern Kentucky. Two systems are set to impact our weather and one of them could bring a touch of snow for some.
On this final day of March, we have some decent weather showing up for a while. Highs may hit 60 in many areas, but clouds and showers quickly move in from the northwest by evening. Track the action:
That front will then put the brakes on across the southern half of the state on Easter Sunday. We will get several dry hours during the day, but a wave of low pressure puts a quick end to that later in the day.
That low will bring rain and a swath of snow across the northern part state through Sunday night:
That can drop some light accumulations across the northern half of the state and that ain’t no foolin’. Here’s the latest GFS snow map:
The NAM is now seeing the same thing:
If anything sticks, it’s likely to be on grassy and elevated surfaces.
That system moves away quickly Sunday night and early Monday, with temps surging behind it. We hit the 50s on Monday, with readings that can reach the low 70s by Tuesday. This is ahead of a VERY strong cold front marching into our region Tuesday night. That may bring high winds and a line of strong storms through here:
Temps drop big time behind this front, as cold air floods back in.
The pattern next weekend has a very interesting look to it, with winter air controlling much of the country, and an active jet stream. Don’t be surprised if we are tracking a huge storm system into our part of the world.
Have a great Saturday and take care.
