Stormy days ahead

Good Wednesday to one and all. April is underway with more nice weather across Central and Eastern Kentucky. The mild and sunny weather will soon be replaced by some showers and thunderstorms.

A very weak cold front pushed through overnight and is allowing for slightly cooler air to filter in. Highs Wednesday will generally run in the mid- and upper 60s under sunny skies.

Scattered showers and thunderstorms will slowly increase Thursday as highs surge into the 70s. The hi-res NAM simulated radar shows what I’m talking about:

A few of those storms could be on the strong side. An increased threat of showers and thunderstorms will be with us Friday. That’s when a strong storm system rolls across our part of the world:

 

EuroWidespread showers and thunderstorms should be around for the opening day of the spring meet at Keeneland. Again, a few of the storms might be strong.

Gusty winds also will be a big problem, with gusts that could top 40 mph at times. Much cooler weather then moves in for Saturday, with highs in the lower 50s. Easter Sunday continues to look nice, starting in the upper 30s and ending in the low 60s.

Very warm and stormy conditions will be likely for the following week.

Have a great Wednesday and take care.
