Good Friday everyone. A strong push of cool air is working across the bluegrass state today as a cold front slides in from the west. This front doesn’t have much moisture to work with, but should be able to touch off a couple of stray showers or thunderstorms.
Temps ahead of the front will hit the upper 70s to low 80s and then drop quickly as the front passes. The shower and thunderstorm risk isn’t the best in the world with only isolated stuff likely. The Friday edition of tracking toys:
Most high school football fans should stay dry this evening as much of the shower action pushes east. I can’t completely rule out a leftover shower or storm in the east. Here’s your gridiron outlook:
Temps by Saturday morning will hit the upper 40s and low 50s as the cool air continues to filter in. The rest of the day looks great with highs from 70-75 under partly sunny skies.
Moisture begins to increase from the southwest by late Sunday as a few showers begin to push in. Showers and storms will then become more widespread on Monday and Tuesday as a colder shot of air heads in from the northwest. This is the first of several blasts of air that will move across the eastern half of the country over the next few weeks.
It’s a pattern that will give us several shots of chilly air that can lead to an early season frost threat. Stay tuned.
Happy Friday and take care.
