Good Wednesday to one and all. It’s another winner of a weather day across central and eastern Kentucky. Temps are mild and it’s dry, but you should take full advantage of both because changes are on the way. These changes mean some winter weather moving in for early March.
Highs today top out between 60 and 65 with a mix of sun and clouds.
Winds will be a little gusty as a cold front drops in from the northwest. That allows for a weak wave of low pressure to develop along this front on Thursday and that should bring a few showers through the region. There’s the chance for a little mix in the north during this time.
An arctic front moves in here for the start of the weekend and that should bring some gusty showers with it. There’s the chance for a few flakes showing up after it blows through here on Saturday.
It’s the system coming in behind this that’s getting some attention. With our storm track setting up to the south, the potential is there for winter weather across Kentucky. The European Model continues to show this potential very well for Sunday and Sunday night:
The Canadian continues to run in lock step with the Euro:
Earlier today, the GFS got on board with this potential, but it jumped right back off this afternoon. The model is back to playing up the Friday and Saturday system before downplaying the Sunday system:
The GFS is a mess and was set to be replaced by the new version of the GFS I’ve been showing, but that new version is performing even worse. So, NOAA has postponed that replacement until it can do more work in the new version. The Euro, regardless of flaws, has always been king and will continue to be king.
Have a wonderful Wednesday and take care.
