A brief taste of winter

Good Friday, folks. It’s a tiny taste of winter rolling into the region today, but this is not going to stick around very long. The overall pattern looks to trend much milder than normal through the rest of the month. It’s also a pattern looking much wetter and stormier.

Speaking or storms, the new Kentucky Weather Podcast features a lot of severe weather talk:

Now, let’s talk a little about the winter weather out there today. A Winter Weather Advisory is out for far southeastern Kentucky and only includes Harlan and Letcher Counties. Cold northwest winds blowing in behind a potent cold front. That will cause snow showers and flurries for much of central and eastern Kentucky.

Light accumulations are possible in the east and, especially southeast. A few inches may fall along the Virginia border counties. I can’t rule out some hit and run coatings all the way back into central Kentucky.

The better weather quickly returns for the weekend with sunny skies taking over. Temps hit 50 Saturday with 60-65 for Sunday!

That kicks off a VERY mild pattern. Check out the average 7 temp anomalies from the Euro for next week:

That warm pattern also turns stormy with rounds of showers and storms targeting the region. Rainfall during that time could become an issue:



This looks like the dominant pattern of the spring… Warm and stormy.

Have a fantastic Friday and take care.
