Monday, April 2nd, 2012:  Front Stalls, We Remain Unsettled...

Good Monday morning, folks!  We've closed the book on the #1 warmest March in Lexington, Jackson and London, and the 2nd warmest March in Frankfort.  We will remain a bit above average through the middle of the first week of April before a step down into cooler air.

Things will remain unsettled over the next few days, with a front stalling across Kentucky today and into Tuesday.  Areas to the southwest will be warmest - mid to upper 70s near Lake Cumberland today will contrast with lower 70s in the Bluegrass Region and 60s for highs in northeastern parts of our area.  The front will waver a bit to the northeast on Tuesday, opening the door to near 80° warmth in Lexington.

Today's storms will likely be less widespread than what we had in the morning and early afternoon Sunday.  Here are the two most significant local storm reports from Sunday.

 

-

This morning's activity was a bit more widespread around 5 or 6 AM in eastern Kentucky, and showers are decreasing in coverage and intensity.  This afternoon, the most likely locations for isolated thunderstorms will be in southern Kentucky.  A few of the storms in southern Kentucky could become a bit gusty.

-

Here is the latest GFS forecast for precipitation between 2 PM and 5 PM today.  While we shouldn't take it too literally, it does have a "reasonable" look, given today's weather situation.

Stay weather-aware over the next couple of days, as the unsettled weather continues to breed occasional thunderstorms.  We'll have updates on ABC 36.
