Strong storms and high wind

Good Thursday, gang. We have a bumpy weather day taking shape across Central and Eastern Kentucky. A strong cold front will touch off some strong thunderstorms as much colder air moves in over the next 24 hours.

Highs ahead of the storms will spike into the upper 60s to low 70s across the east, with highs in the middle 60s in the central areas. Winds are going to be very gusty and could reach 40 mph at times.

Lines of showers and thunderstorms will then increase from west to east in the afternoon and evening. These storms could be strong to locally severe, with damaging winds the primary threat. I will have your tracking tools in a bit.

Colder weather moves in for Friday, with highs struggling to get out of the 40s. There’s even the chance of some morning sprinkles or snowflakes.

Easter weekend is looking better and better. Saturday will find highs in the middle 60s with mostly sunny skies. Our storm system for Easter Sunday might not arrive until Sunday night:

GFS 2If that is the case, highs on Easter might spike close to 70 degrees! That would be exactly what most people would draw up for a perfect holiday.
