Tracking snow and weekend storms

Good Friday, folks. Much of the region is starting the day with a wet snowfall. This is likely to cause some travel issues, leading to cancellations and delays. Beyond this, temps rise and we have the threat for strong thunderstorms on Saturday.

A Winter Weather Advisory is out for parts of Kentucky to start the day:

By the afternoon, temps begin to climb with a few showers taking over and highs making a run at 40.

As we head into Saturday, a potent plains storm system rolls eastward toward the Great Lakes. That will bring the potential for late day strong thunderstorms to much of the region. The Storm Prediction Center is even monitoring parts of Kentucky for a few severe thunderstorms:

With or without thunderstorms, winds are going to be a big player over the weekend. Gusts may reach 50mph at times Saturday evening into Saturday night.

Sunday looks windy, but mild and dry.

Another big storm system will threaten the region with more strong storms and heavy rain during the middle and end of next week.

I leave you with your tracking toys for the day:
