Strong storms possible late today

Good Sunday and Happy Easter. We have a windy and very warm day taking shape across central and eastern Kentucky. Throw a cold front into the mix, and you can get a setup to produce some showers and strong storms later today.

Colder air moves in for Monday with highs mainly in the 50s. We rebound quickly toward the 60s on Tuesday as we get set for a stronger system to impact our region later in the week. This could throw some strong storms our way from late Wednesday into Thursday:
