A thick frost this morning but it is going to be a very nice day across the Valley. We expect a mix of sun and clouds with afternoon temperatures in the lower 50s…..some 17-18 degrees above average.
Meanwhile, a major storm system is producing heavy snow and lots of wind in the middle of the country:
As this comes east, it will draw Gulf moisture northward and a Spring-like outbreak of severe weather is likely by this evening across the Tennessee and lower Ohio Valleys.
RAIN AND WIND TONIGHT
No severe weather here but there will be a good slug of rain overnight and winds can gust to 35-40 mph.
Rain totals will average 0.50″-0.75″ with some places perhaps getting an inch.
Temperatures will spike into record territory after the rain tomorrow. The record is 55 but we think readings will make it into the lower 60s!
REST OF THE WEEK
Back to reality Thursday behind the cold front. Clouds, seasonable temperatures and maybe a flurry or two.
Friday will be sunnier and a bit warmer.
It’ll be a nice one! Some sunshine both days with above-average temperatures.
Winter is not over. Still looks like there will be a significant (although fairly brief) outbreak of cold air toward the end of next week.
