Good Monday, everyone. We have another wild week of weather on tap for central and eastern Kentucky. We are starting the week out with a little snow, but will end it with warm temps and a severe weather threat.
Morning snow may leave behind light accumulations, but that will quickly melt away by the afternoon. That’s when temps make a run at 50 in many areas. I will have your tracking tools in a bit.
Tuesday will have one more weak system rolling through, potentially spitting out a light shower or two. Temps will come back down a few degrees.
Wednesday starts to bring us out of our cold weather funk. Highs will hit the 60s with mostly sunny skies and a strong southwesterly wind. Highs by Thursday race deep into the 70s and continue to warm into Friday. Highs may flirt with 80 degrees.
This is ahead of a setup that can bring severe weather our way. Look at the negative tilt showing up on this trough swinging into our region next weekend:
That’s certainly an attention getter and you can see how the models are spitting out some big thunderstorms:
Those kinds of systems will then roll across the country through the rest of the month. Big warm surges will battle with big cold surges and that usually says “watch out”.
