Good Sunday to one and all. Many of the kiddos across our region are out of school on spring break, and it looks as if the weather might act the part. Much milder air is on the way for the next several days!
After the past few days of wintertime conditions, we certainly need it. Lexington hit 19 degrees Saturday morning, and that was the lowest temperature this late in spring since 1964. That’s 51 years ago.
Highs Sunday will reach the mid 50s, with partly sunny skies and some clouds on the increase. Winds will be very gusty and could approach 30 mph at times. These winds are ahead of a cold front that could spit out a few showers across the region this evening.
Those will work quickly to our east on Monday as some afternoon sun takes over. Highs should be back into the middle and upper 50s.
Tuesday and Wednesday could find thermometers getting closer to 70 degrees with a mix of sun and clouds. Our next threat of a shower or thunderstorm comes Wednesday night and Thursday. That might open the floodgates to a very warm Friday, with highs reaching well into the 70s.
This will be ahead of a strong storm system pushing in later Friday and Saturday. Rounds of showers and thunderstorms will be possible with this bad boy:
Highs behind that system will then drop into the 40s Saturday and Easter Sunday.
Make it a great day and take care.
