Good Friday to one and all. We’ve finally made it to the weekend and things are about to finally warm up. Mother Nature will throw more humidity into the mix and this should be enough to give us some scattered boomers. The warm temps try to become hot into early next week as our pattern grows more active.
The short term weather for this Friday holds on to the mainly sunny skies, but increases the temps into the middle 80s. You will notice a touch more humidity out there and this might fire up an isolated storm or two. The best chance for that will be across the south and southeast.
Temps and humidity levels continue to rise into Saturday with highs hitting the upper 80s. A scattered shower or thunderstorm will be possible across the entire state.
The chance for showers and storms will climb as we roll into Sunday and Monday as a weak front approaches from the northwest. This front never makes it through here, but will act as a focusing mechanism to get some storms popping. The NAM simulated radar for Sunday afternoon:
The pattern for next week looks busy and may feature the hottest air of the year, so far. Readings by Tuesday and Wednesday may hit the lower 90s for much of the region. The heat shows up well on the European Model:
There is also a push of cool air showing up across the high plains by the middle of the week. That air looks to have ticket for the bluegrass state by next weekend. Getting from hot to cool may spawn some decent thunderstorms.
Have a fantastic Friday and take care.
