It takes a day like Wednesday to remind me that this type of weather scenario is exactly what I enjoy most! Everything covered in white and the stillness of a good snow might be near the top as well. I think I can wait on that until next season though! The comfort zone is here... it's not too hot or cold. Mainly, these highs aren't too warm. As long as I don't sweat a 5 gallon bucket full walking from my car to the door here at the station I think I am in pretty good shape. Those days are coming soon I am afraid!
Daytime highs have been a little surprising. I knew that we would be extremely warm, but near 80 degrees in southern KY on Wednesday wasn't at all what I expected. Mid 70s I saw coming, but near 80 really ruins my forecast confidence for this time of year.
These are only the highs at the Mesonet locations. Here are some official highs.
I see these getting a little bit warmer each day this week. The weekend will bring the temps back down a few degrees. It won't be a level that we'll find as uncomfortable... actually rather pleasant!
In my last post I was debating the rain chances for Saturday and since then I have been convinced that the rain will start on Saturday evening. The data is trying to make this system fall a part rather quickly though.

We'll see how this looks with some of the later runs.
As far as the mystery I was talking about for next week... we'll keep it at that for now. I'll review again on Thursday!
