Tracking two cold fronts this week

Good Monday, everyone. We’re coming off a spectacular weekend across the Bluegrass State. The week starts nice, but we are going to see a much more active weather pattern settling in. A couple of cold fronts will bring showers and thunderstorms our way.

Clouds and winds will increase Monday as the first front nears from the west. Highs will be back in the 70s, with the threat of a shower or thunderstorm moving in Monday evening. Scattered shower and thunderstorms are likely to work in for Tuesday. Here’s what the high-res NAM radar is forecasting:

Much colder air will filter in behind this front and that could send our temps toward frosty readings by Wednesday morning:

GFS 3Highs Wednesday look to be around the 60-degree mark, with mostly sunny skies. Warmer air will surge in for Thursday and Friday, with highs well into the 70s. This warm-up is ahead of another cold front scooting our way for Friday. That should bring another round or two of showers and thunderstorms.

The pattern for the weekend into the final week of April looks unsettled and could turn ugly. That’s not what we want to hear as we roll closer to Kentucky Derby week.

Have a great day and take care.
