Good Friday, folks. We’ve made it to the end of the week, with the weekend staring right at us. Unfortunately, that weekend stare has a rather ugly look to it with rounds of rain and gusty winds ahead.
Rounds of rain increase today and I can’t rule out some rumbles of thunder. Winds may gust to 20-30mph at times as temps stay on the mild side. Here are your regional radars:
This big upper-level system helping create the waves of rain is a slow mover and that means ugly weather through Sunday. Heavy rainfall of 1″-2″ will be possible during this time, with a few spots coming in higher. The Hi Res NAM only goes through Saturday, but has a few 2″-3″ spots in central Kentucky:
That model is picking up on a few areas of thunderstorms, so you will see more of the “hotspots” of rain. The GFS is more of a smooth average without storms:
The pattern after that continues to skew mild through the middle of next week. A system dives in by the end of the week to change that, but the real change happens next weekend into Christmas week. A trough deepens across the country, allowing much colder air to come back in. Combine that with an active storm track and you have the chance for some of the white stuff on, or around, the big day.
Check out the new version of the GFS and all the systems it is tracking:
It’s a rather interesting look for the big day and week surrounding it. Keep dreaming and maybe it will become a reality.
Have a great day and take care.
