Good Wednesday to one and all. We have a much milder day taking shape across central and eastern Kentucky. This air is ahead of a strong cold front rolling our way for Thursday, with showers and thunderstorms leading the charge.
Temps today will start in the 30s and end close to 70 degrees. Winds will become rather gusty ahead of our next storm system.
Showers and thunderstorms return to the region late tonight into Thursday morning and continue into Friday morning. Some of the storms could be on the strong side and produce heavy rainfall. The NAM shows a general 1″-2″ during this time:
Temps will spike toward the low 70s by late Thursday afternoon ahead of the front. Behind that front, readings drop through the 50s on Friday.
Another weak system arrives from the northwest on Saturday and could produce a shower or two. Colder winds will blow behind this system. Check out the temperature departures for the weekend:
A hard freeze is possible by Sunday morning with temps dropping into the middle 20s.
After a brief spike into the 60s for Monday, another cold front arrives Monday night and Tuesday:
This will bring another shot of below freezing temperatures by Tuesday.
Make it a great day and take care.
