Storms increase this weekend

Good Friday, everyone. Our weekend is looking like a stormy one across Central and Eastern Kentucky. Rounds of boomers look to increase, and that’s not the best of news for folks heading to the Kentucky Speedway on Saturday.

Let’s start with where we are now and roll forward.

Scattered storms will be possible Friday, with highs hitting the upper 80s. Track away:

Locally heavy rainfall will be possible during this time, and that could lead to some local high-water problems. Highs will run in the 80s.

Scattered showers and storms will continue early next week. That’s when a cold front nears the region from the northwest. The air behind this front looks fairly cool for this time of year, and the models suggest a cooler than normal Fourth of July:

 

Euro1I can handle that!

Make it a great Friday and take care.
