Spring Is Almost Here

Posted at 2:38 PM, Mar 19, 2019

Spring will arrive tomorrow evening and with it a surge in temperatures due to a nice southerly wind flow. Today has been chilly, but nice with abundant sunshine before things begin to change. Temperatures have warmed nicely into the 50s for most of the state after a bitter morning low in the 20s. Everyone is running a little warmer than yesterday and we should end in the mid-50s for afternoon highs.

Changes will begin tomorrow with more cloud coverage and a boost in temperatures. We should reach the upper 50s if not low 60s by Wednesday afternoon, thanks to a southerly wind. Showers should arrive with a moisture-starved cold front early Thursday morning for the Bluegrass and through the late morning for the south and east portions of the state. Rainfall amounts will be minor with the front, and generally below a quarter of an inch. A few sprinkles or light rain showers will fall Thursday morning and be finished by the afternoon. Clouds will decrease shortly thereafter as more high pressure builds into the Ohio Valley. Sunshine will be available again for the end of the week as we continue to climb the high temperature ladder into the 60s for the weekend.
