Chilly, drizzly, and gray - not the best adjectives for the first Saturday of spring. Temperatures took a big hit following yesterday's strong cold front. Yesterday afternoon we were sitting in the 70s. Today temperatures struggled to climb out for the 40s. The stubborn clouds will break apart overnight and many of us will see temperatures dip below freezing, even into the upper 20s. Frost won't be a big issue because of the lingering high clouds and some mixing near the surface thanks to a light northeasterly wind.
Sunday will be milder with highs in the lower 50s around the Bluegrass, near 60° down south. Unfortunately sunshine will be limited and dry time will limited as our next system will quickly approach from the west. Clouds will return and showers will soon follow by the late afternoon. Scattered showers will linger through the first half of Monday. Then we catch another break before a more widespread round of rain and storms moves in Tuesday. The middle of the upcoming week will give us several opportunities to head outside and get some fresh air. Temperatures will also warm up with highs returning to the 60s and 70s. Storm chances will tick back up next Friday and Saturday.
