Good Friday everyone. Our weekend kicks off later today on a much warmer note and that’s a sign of things to come over the next few days. The warm temps will eventually come with a price as we increase the risk for showers and thunderstorms by late weekend.
The showers and storms will then kick into high gear into the first part of next week. More on that here in a bit.
The weather today will feature a cool start in the 50s with a warm end in the 80s. Most of central and eastern Kentucky will reach the 80-85 degree mark. Our skies look to be partly to mostly sunny.
Saturday looks even warmer as our temp soar into the middle and high 80s. I’m wondering if Saturday will turn out to be the warmest of the weekend. Why is that? Because Sunday may end up featuring an increase in clouds and some scattered showers and thunderstorms firing up.
There is a heck of a moisture plume lifting northward out of the Gulf of Mexico this weekend. Some of that moisture arrives late Sunday and you can see that on the NAM Simulated Radar:
That juice may keep our temps down a degree or two from Saturday’s highs. Of course, if the clouds are a little late, we could flirt with 90.
Showers and thunderstorms will become more common by Monday and Tuesday and some locally heavy rains will be possible by this time.
Enjoy your Friday and have a wonderful weekend. Be sure to check back for updates and take care.
