Good Thursday, everyone. A slow-moving storm system across the Deep South will throw moisture into parts of Kentucky today. There will be a few showers on the move. Things look to improve for the weekend, but a stormy pattern appears to be taking shape for next week.
The rain today will be more likely the farther south you live. A shower or two might drift as far north as the Interstate 64 corridor, but much of the action will be across southern and southeastern sections of the commonwealth.
Highs will be milder in the north, with 50s, than the south, with 40s. Track it all:
The showers will move out late tonight and early Friday, leaving us with improving conditions as the day wears on. Partly sunny skies will be with us for the opening day of the spring meet at Keeneland. That will boost highs into the upper 50s to near 60.
Saturday looks like a fantastic day, with highs in the 60s with plenty of sunshine. Highs might approach the 70-degree mark by Sunday, but I can’t rule out a late-day shower or thunderstorm.
The pattern into next week looks much warmer, but that might come with a price. A stalled-out front will be just to our north and west, and that might allow for rounds of thunderstorms to roll in. Here’s the setup by Tuesday:
The low across the Southern Plains will slowly work into our part of the world by Wednesday and Thursday. That might set the stage for strong storms and heavy rainfall.
Make it a wonderful Thursday and take care.
