Good Sunday to one and all. As a cold front continues to press to our east, frigid temps are blowing back into the region. This cold sticks around into the start of the week, but a mild and storm look settles in for the second half of the week.
Our day is beginning with showers exiting eastern Kentucky and a few of the showers may actually contain some wet snowflakes:
Temps behind the rain drop into the 20s to start the day, with only 40s for highs. Gusty winds will make it feel much colder, but we will see the sun.
Temps this morning will reach the 20s in several areas. Skies will become partly to mostly sunny as the day wears on with temps in the 40s. A hard freeze is likely across the entire region tonight and Monday morning as temps reach deep into the 20s:
Temps begin to moderate by the afternoon and that continues through the week. Highs by Wednesday and Thursday may make a run at 70 as winds become southwesterly.
This takes us into a pattern that will feature storm systems rolling from west to east across the country. The first one arrives late Thursday into Friday and brings showers and storms with it:
That moves away very quickly, but the next system is right behind it for late Sunday and Monday:
That brings more showers and storms with it, and you can see the next system ready to follow out of Texas. This is the warmer and wetter than normal pattern I’ve been talking about for April. It can bring quite a bit of thunderstorm action our way, with an increased chance for severe weather.
Have a great day and take care.
