Good Saturday and welcome to the weekend. Things have been awfully soggy across our part of the world over the past week. That pattern is slowly fading and giving way to one that will feature a lot more in the way of dry weather. That’s the good news. The bad news? Possible record lows and frost will blow into town by Sunday night.
The first of two cold fronts will cross the state early today. This will give us some clouds and a possible early day shower before some clearing moves in.
Temps today should hit the 60-65 degree range into the afternoon hours.
That’s when we watch the next front diving in from the northwest. There may be a small band of showers along this boundary as it slides in. The big news will be the amount of cold air that moves in behind this.
Mother’s Day will start with temps in the upper 30s and end with upper 50s.
It’s Sunday night when we are likely to see the coldest air moving in. Thermometers will drop into the low and mid 30s for much of central and eastern Kentucky. This could crank out some frost and record lows. The record for Lexington is 37 degrees and that’s in serious jeopardy.
The shot of cold won’t last long as we flip the switch back to May by Wednesday:
Showers and storms will slip back into the weather picture by the end of the week.
Have a great day and take care.
