Good Tuesday to one and all. A big time blast of spring air is rolling across the state today and this could set the stage for thunderstorms later tonight. The spring fling won’t last long as Old Man Winter makes his return by late Wednesday.
Highs today will make a run toward records across the bluegrass state. The record high in Lexington is 69 degrees from back in 1975. We have a good shot at breaking that with 70 degrees within reach. 70 degree temps in January are rare. We’ve only had 5 of them in the past 40 years.
Follow the temps:
A cold front will swing through here late tonight and early Wednesday. This will bring a line of strong and severe thunderstorms eastward across the state. The severe weather threat later today includes areas just to our west. Here’s a look:
That threat will be with central and eastern Kentucky early Wednesday. Damaging winds will be the main threat.
Temps early Wednesday will be in the low 60s and then fall into the 30s by evening. Gusty winds will continue to blow the cold air in here Wednesday night and Thursday and may also bring some flurries and snow showers. A better chance of light snow will be noted Friday and Saturday.
Have a great day and take care.
