Good Wednesday to one and all. We have a great-looking weather day in progress across the Bluegrass state. This nice stuff will be fleeting as we track some showers back into the region for Thursday. As that leaves town early Friday, it’s all eyes on a much milder pattern.
Temps today will hit the low to mid-50s after a cold start in the 20s. Skies will be partly sunny with some late-day clouds a good bet.
Low pressure will scoot across the Gulf Coast states later tonight and Thursday. This system will throw some showers all the way into Kentucky. The heaviest rain will stay well to our south, and you can see that on the GFS Rainfall forecast through early Friday:
Thursday will be on the chilly side, and highs will struggle to get out of the 40s for highs. Some clouds and spotty showers might hang around into Friday morning, but skies look to clear out for opening day at Keeneland.
That surge of warmth will really kick into high gear early next week as a more typical spring pattern takes hold. This same pattern is likely to become stormy, and we might have to deal with some strong or severe storms before the week is finished.
Make it a great Wednesday and take care.
