Eastern Kentucky Weather

Spring starts warm but turns cold very quick

Spring starts Thursday, but temperatures will feel more like winter by the end of the weekend.


Clouds were very stubborn across Eastern Kentucky this Tuesday, but they finally moved out as we entered the late afternoon.  However tomorrow the clouds will return by Wednesday and a few showers will cross the region in the early afternoon.  The NAM simulated radar product is picking up on the showers quite well.


 

 The good news is the front driving those showers our way is not that strong.  Temperatures will rebound into the mid 50s on Thursday and mid 60s on Friday.  Saturday a much stronger cold front will enter the Ohio Valley.  This is the leading edge of a massive pool of arctic air that is going to dip back into the eastern half of the United States.    Check out the cold showing up on the GFS Ensemble models.

That is some pretty cold air for March standards around here.  Here's a look at the 7-day Forecast.  


Winter is not over just yet.
