Better weather for the weekend

Good Friday, folks. We’ve made it to the end of the week, with the first weekend of spring staring us in the face. The overall weather setup looks to improve as we move into the next few days, but the up and down temperature pattern remains.

Let us begin with today and roll forward. Highs will be in the upper 40s to low 50s with a mix of sun and clouds. Winds will be rather gusty as a weak system passes just to our east. That bad boy may get close enough eastern Kentucky to produce a stray shower.

Here’s regional radar to help ya out:

Saturday starts with temps deep into the 20s and ends with readings in the 50-55 degree range. Skies will stay sunny.

Clouds and winds increase on Sunday as temps head toward the 60-65 degree range. Those clouds may produce a shower or two late, but the majority of the showers arrive Sunday night and Monday:

 

The air behind that is a little colder than normal, but readings should bounce back very quickly by the middle of the week. That’s when temps take off and make a run at 70, but that would only be temporary. Watch how another system introduces some chill back into the mix to close out March and usher in April:

As we look down the road, it appears El Nino isn’t going away and will likely strengthen in the months ahead…

That is forecasting a moderate El Nino to develop this summer into fall. That may temper summer temps, but may do the opposite for next winter.

Have a great day and take care.
