Historic temps start the day

Good Wednesday, folks. Our history-making blast of winter weather continues out there today. Temps this morning are likely the coldest temps ever recorded this early in the season for Lexington and the entire state.

Temps to start the day are in the single digits and low teens, breaking all kinds of records for the date. Wow!

After the current arctic cold pushes east, temps moderate but are still skewing colder than normal for the rest of the week.

The overall pattern looks very blocky with systems cutting off across the eastern part of the country this weekend into early next week. Can we get some kind of merger to take place? That’s something we need to be on guard for. Check out the Canadian upper levels to see what I’m talking about:

That would form one heck of a storm along the east coast with the potential for another system to pop in our region by early next week:

The Canadian brings a little rain and snow to the area by Monday and Tuesday. The ICON has a similar evolution:

The Canadian then digs another deep system into the east later next week:

With so many systems on the map, look for some fairly wide model swings in the coming days.

Make it a great day and take care.
