Short term: Weekend forecast


I’m back from AMS. A great learning experience and I’d never thought I would see so many meteorologists in one building before.  My thinking on Sunday’s severe is the instability did not have enough time to advect into the region to make it a more significant event. overall after that the forecast last week went wrong and that’s why forecast thought should be updated every few days at least.

1. Friday with the departing system we’ll have slowly clearing skies after starting out in the mid 30’s highs should range from the low to upper 40’s, maybe 50 south. No fog as winds will be from 5-10 mph.

2. Saturday a week front will pass through the region I suspect WAA ahead of the front keeps temps up in the low to upper 30’s Saturday morning. A week front may bring a very small chance of light rain or flurries with mostly cloudy skies  as well. Highs will be from 40-45. Windier conditions are expected.

3. Sunday a shortwave tracks north of the Ohio river. This increases clouds once again perhaps bringing a rain or snow shower for northern and eastern KY Lows will range from the mid 20’s north to 30 south with highs in the 40’s.

4. read below for a bleak long range.

    Hey Mitch,

    What are your thoughts on this upcoming spring? Everybody’s saying a warm January equals a cold spring but I’m not sure that will be the case for this year as the snow pack in Canada is diminishing. I’m thinking warm and dry.

    Thinking more normal analogs right now would be 1957,1973. Should be a continued active storm track. Still could go cold for the first part of march think 2008 then go back to warm. we’ll see.
