As expected Tuesday was somewhat of a mixed bagged day with rain showers for about half of the region north to south, if you live in southern Kentucky it rained all day but in northern Kentucky in only rained during the evening hours. Either way, everyone saw some precipitations. Today we’ll start the day off with cloudy cover but slowly thin out the clouds throughout the day.
Hope you were able to enjoy the amazing sunshine we had Monday! Why you ask? Because clouds have moved in overnight as an area of low pressure pushes towards the Bluegrass Region. Along with the cloud cover is a fair amount of rain showers. Lexington will be right on the rain line, this mean that about half of the viewing area, north to south, may not see rain today. It could be a case where if you have a friend in Richmond they have rain all day but Lexington just gets sprinkles.
A warm front pushed through Friday and has continued to bring summer like temperatures to the Bluegrass Region. Highs for Saturday has moved into the upper 70s to low 80s, unfortunately with the warm weather we do expect severe weather later tonight. The Storm Prediction Center has highlighted central Kentucky for a Slight Risk for severe weather, and a Marginal Risk for severe weather into eastern Kentucky.
A warm front has push north across the Bluegrass Region and brought a warm southerly flow. Temperatures have continued to climb all day with some spots reaching the low 80s. If Lexington does hit 80 degrees it will be the first time since October 21st 2019. Temperatures are expected to reach the low 80 for Saturday.
After a few scattered light rain showers across the Bluegrass and a lot of lingering stratus clouds around the Bluegrass Region a lot of people were left thinking, what happened the mostly sunny sky day? Well a low pressure center in combination with a surface trough were suppose to continue to push off into the Atlantic but end up slowing so the low pressure center end up pushing wrap around cloud cover and even some spot showers into Kentucky.
After a few morning rain showers ahead of a slow moving cold front the humidity and warm air built its way back into the Bluegrass Region and temperatures moved into the low 70s. Cooler and drier air will move in late tonight into Saturday morning with a nearly 40 degree temperature drop from Fridays high to Saturdays morning low.
It’s been a gloomy day across the Ohio Valley with overcast skies and showers for much of the day. Temperatures have been on a steady rise too with highs in the upper 60s to low 70s. The showers throughout the day have kept the temperatures a bit cooler than expected but if you’ve been outside today you have certainly felt something you haven’t felt in some time….. Humidity.
It’s been a gloomy day across the Ohio Valley with overcast skies and a few hints of sunshine throughout the day after some morning rain showers but the bulk of the rain moved in during the afternoon and evening and continued for much the rest of the day. Temperatures were fairly mild as a warm front lifted across the region.
There were some showers in the morning with mostly cloudy skies most of the day. Temperatures were in the upper 40s to low 50s, storms will continue to affect the Ohio Valley this week as mild air moves into the region.
It was a cool and wet day across the Bluegrass Region with showers starting in the late morning and continuing throughout the entire day. Rain showers have been heavy at times; however rainfall amounts have not added up into impressive number, the Bluegrass Region less than one inch of rain.
After a busy night of severe weather and showers and thunderstorms our Friday as been calm and cool. Temperatures have been in the mid 50s with locations in eastern Kentucky reaching the lower 60s.
Warm moist air filtered its way into the Bluegrass Region making it really feel like Spring. Temperatures were in the upper 60s to low 70s with dew points moving into the 50s so for the first time this year we has a somewhat muggy afternoon.
After some morning fog/mist across the Bluegrass we’ve been left with mostly cloudy skies and highs in the upper 50s and low 60s. There are some very spot showers in southern Kentucky but it looks like the Bluegrass Region may stay dry.
It was the start of a very unsettled week weather wise with showers likely all every day, but the seven day forecast looks worse than it is. Rain showers have been the focus today as a cold front moves through the Bluegrass Region.
Today was a reality check for everyone in Kentucky, just reminding us that it is still winter after all. Don’t worry though the cooler weather will only last today. With that said, it was gloomy, with a few flurries along with windy conditions.
We’ve seen a mix of sun and clouds all day along with warm temperatures. All together this has given us a taste of ‘Spring’ in the atmosphere. We get a reality check tomorrow with a brief shot of cold air and snow showers too.
We started Wednesday with mostly sunny skies; however, some cloud cover has moved in the a few scattered showers. The only issue is the atmosphere is extremely dry so the showers are only occurring in the upper atmosphere and therefore we are not actually seeing any showers at the surface.
After some scattered storms overnight and evening in the morning the clouds did finally clear out and the sunshine popped out as high pressure gained control of the weather.
On March 2nd 2012 a severe weather outbreak swept across the Ohio Valley, spawning off several tornadoes. Over 20 people were killed and dozens more were injured causing millions of dollars in property damage.
It has been a mixed bag weather wise today with snow showers in southeast Kentucky. Periods of sunshine in central Kentucky but everyone will see snow later this evening.
