Eastern Kentucky Weather

Big Warm Up, Before The Big Cool Down

Chief Meteorologist Shane Smith is watching some warmer temperatures before a mid spring chill arrives next week.

Spring in Kentucky, such a fun time of year for Meteorologists.  A little bit of everything can be on the table, and that's the set up we have tonight as I write this blog.  
 

So let's get this buffet of weather over the next week in gear with some really nice conditions tomorrow.  High pressure will dominate our weather, meaning clear skies and highs in the 70s.  A cold front dips into the Ohio Valley on Friday and brings showers to the region off and on through the day.  The rain should move out by Saturday morning.   

 

The weekend forecast in a word... fantastic.  Sunshine both days with highs in the mid 70s on Saturday and upper 70s on Sunday.  It would not surprise me if a few spots in the Cumberland Valley make a run at 80.

Then comes the big cool down.  We've got thermometers set to dip down quite a bit below seasonal average as a very strong cold front is set to enter the area on Monday.  This will knock our temperatures down quite a bit and will also generate a line of strong wind driven thunderstorms.

 

That's some seriously cool for April air showing up on the long range models heading into the middle of next week.  We're talking highs in the 50s, lows in the 30s kind of cold air.

Brr.  I'm tired of the cold.
