Good Thursday, everyone. We have one more day of scattered showers and thunderstorms before a big change blows into the Bluegrass State. That change will usher in a refreshing, cool air mass for the Memorial Day Weekend.
The cold front will swing in from the northwest late today into the evening. This front will have the usual showers and storms ahead of it. These will crank up during the afternoon and evening. These storms should not be as strong as what we’ve had over the past few days.
That action will end quickly this evening. That’s when the actual front blows through here and sweeps the air clean. Much colder air moves in behind this boundary. Check out how far below normal we look to be on Friday:
Readings by Friday morning will drop near the low 40s as skies clear out. A mix of sun and clouds will be with us during the day, with highs making it only into the 60s.
Saturday morning could be even colder: upper 30s to low 40s in many spots. Ouch. Sunshine will then boost highs into the upper 60s.
We will warm toward the low 70s by Sunday as we hang onto the sunshine. Memorial Day will see highs closer to the normal middle 70s, with a small threat of a shower or thunderstorm:
