Warmer air to bring a few storms

Good Thursday to one and all. Much warmer temps are rolling into Central and Eastern Kentucky. This is all ahead of a stormy pattern that looks to be taking shape for early next week.

We might get a small preview of that stormy pattern on Thursday night as a cold front swings in. That will bring a line of showers and thunderstorms across the state from west to east. This is a fast-moving band of boomers that will exit the region by noon Friday.

Highs ahead of the storms will be in the low to mid-70s Thursday on a gusty southwesterly wind. Readings behind the storms also will be in the 70s as sunshine returns by Friday afternoon.

This takes us into the weekend, and things are looking pretty darn good. Highs for Saturday should be in the low to mid-70s with partly sunny skies. That should make for a great afternoon For the Kentucky spring football game at Commonwealth Stadium.

Sunday will find highs again in the 70s, with the potential for some late-day storms in the west. That’s the beginning of our stormy setup that really cranks up Monday and Tuesday. Rounds of strong storms might put down some very heavy rainfall. Check out the impressive rain numbers from the European Model:

Euro 2 That could be enough to cause some problems, and I will be keeping a close eye on that threat.

As the storm threat diminishes, the pattern might turn ugly as we head into the middle and end of next week. A big upper-level low will slowly spin across the region and bring cool and damp weather:

Hopefully, we can get that out of town before the Kentucky Derby.

Enjoy your day and take care.
