April starts with more wild weather

Good Sunday and Happy Easter! April is off and running, but you may get it confused with March. That’s because the overall weather pattern really hasn’t changed much. We have a lot of wild weather on the way, with the potential for a little late Easter snow for some areas.

Morning showers will give way to a few dry hours, but another system rolls in here later today into tonight. This is mainly a cold rain for many, but areas across the north may have a brief period of slushy snow. Here’s the area having the best chance for that:

Temps rise on Monday with a few more showers ahead of a warm front. That unleashes a WARM day for Tuesday:

If we can get enough sunshine, temps will make a run at 80 degrees on a strong southwesterly wind. This all comes crashing down behind a cold front arriving Tuesday night. High winds and strong thunderstorms are possible:

Temps drop more than 40 degrees into Wednesday, with the potential for a few snow flurries or snow showers on a northwest wind:

Let’s review… snow Sunday night, 80 on Tuesday, with more snowflakes on Wednesday. Kentucky weather is crazy and I’m not just talking about the dude on twitter. 🙂

Lows by Thursday morning may cause some damage to vegetation. Readings may drop into the low and middle 20s:

Notice all that bitter cold up in Canada? That has to go somewhere, and it works into the country by the weekend. That’s when another system then moves in here late Friday into Saturday, and may take on a winter look:

Lows behind that have a chance to flirt with the teens next weekend, with below zero numbers showing up as close by as Iowa on the GFS:
