Good Sunday evening, I hope everyone is having a great weekend as it winds down. Just wanted to share another weather update with you guys because compared to my last blog, models & data has changed so I want to keep you all up to date with the latest weather trends and forecasts as we go into this new week,
First things first, the big weather story for this week is about ice. The latest data and model trends are now leaning towards no major ice accumulations locally here in South Central KY as they were last week. We do still have just a slight chance of seeing around 1/10" of ice depending how this system comes through this week, Now folks to our North in the Ohio River Valley vicinity could definitely see ice headed their way. More than likely for our local area, any precipitation that we see from mid week til Thursday will be rain, it will just be too warm for anything else.
The second weather story I am watching for the latter part of the week into this coming weekend will be below freezing temperatures - high temperatures & low temperatures both.
We will "enjoy" high temperatures this week ranging from the low to upper 40s, almost at 50 a few days then by Friday, those high temperatures will top in the low to mid 30s. Low temperatures this week will range from low to mid 30s through Wednesday night, by Thursday night lows will be in the mid 20s.
Let's take an extended and detailed look at your forecast for this week even into your week so you can see the trend I am talking about.:
Tonight - Mostly Clear; Lows in the low 20s.
Monday - Mostly Sunny; Highs in the upper 40s.
Monday Night - 20% Showers; Mostly Cloudy; Lows in the mid 30s.
Tuesday - Mostly Cloudy; Highs in the upper 40s.
Tuesday Night - 30% Showers; Mostly Cloudy; Lows in the mid 30s.
Wednesday - 50% Showers; Cloudy; Highs in the upper 40s.
Wednesday Night - 80% Showers; Cloudy; Lows in the mid 30s
Thursday - 90% Showers; Cloudy; Highs in the upper 30s to low 40s
Thursday Night - 50% Showers (possible freezing rain); Cloudy; Lows in the mid 20s.
Friday - AM Chance of possible freezing rain; Mostly Cloudy; Highs in the mid 30s
Friday Night - Mostly Cloudy; Lows in the mid teens.
Saturday - 20% Snow showers/freezing rain; Mostly Cloudy; Highs in the low 30s.
Saturday Night - 20% Snow showers/freezing rain; Mostly Cloudy; Lows in the low teens.
Sunday - Partly Sunny; Highs in the mid to upper 20s
So as you can see by the latter part of the week, we will be dealing with colder weather which will last numerous days in a row for high temps and low temps.
This forecast continues to change daily and I will continue to keep an eye on model and data trends as well as the forecast and update with any major changes that we can expect.
PLEASE do not believe the hype of those who are sharing/telling that this is going to be a major ice storm or that there are multiple inches of snow forecasted because that is not true!
I do my best to pass on the most reliable weather information that I can not only here but on-air & also to our Facebook page and even my personal Facebook page.
I will update you guys as needed!
