Good Thursday, folks. We have a big warm-up on the way, just in time for the weekend. It will be followed by another surge of arctic air moving in early next week. Between the two, it might get a little bumpy.
We will feel the milder air today, with afternoon readings in the upper 40s to near 50. Some clouds will increase Friday, and I can’t rule out a shower or two as highs hit the low 50s.
The real warm-up begins Saturday with 60-degree highs possible on a gusty southwesterly wind. This moist flow might bring a shower or two our way. That will be ahead of a potent storm system developing in the Plains. It will roll toward the Great Lakes by Sunday night and drag a cold front across Kentucky:
Showers and thunderstorms will increase late Sunday. Heavy rain and high winds will be likely as the front crashes in.
Highs Monday will begin to fall and stay in the 40s in the afternoon, with gusty showers continuing.
Arctic air then dives in Tuesday:
Have a great day and take care.
