Rain is likely for Easter weekend

Good Thursday, everyone. We’re finally beginning to see temperatures on the rise across Kentucky, and this trend will take us into the big weekend ahead. Unfortunately, the milder air might come with a price. The threat for showers will be on the rise.

Temps today will head into the upper 40s to low 50s across Central and Eastern Kentucky. Skies will be partly to mostly sunny.

More clouds will roll in on Friday as milder air pushes into the western half of the state. These clouds might even produce a scattered shower or two during the afternoon and evening, especially in the west.

Saturday looks like the mildest day, with highs in the upper 50s to near 60 degrees. Winds will increase, and we might have a late-day shower or two. A higher chance of showers will move in for Easter Sunday as a cold front sweeps in from the northwest. This doesn’t look like an all-day rain, but you might need the umbrellas on occasion.

A much colder pattern moves back in early next week. Here’s the chilly look from the European Model:


That’s also a pattern that can produce a surge in late-day showers for Monday and might throw some rain and snow our way Monday night and early Tuesday.

The GFS also on board with the mid-week cold snap:



Spring breakers aren’t going to be happy with that pattern.

Make it a terrific Thursday and take care.
