Good Sunday, everyone. We’re wrapping up quite the weather weekend here in the bluegrass state. High winds caused all kinds of problems on Saturday, and a hard freeze starts our Sunday. This wild weather may get a little wilder in the week ahead, with a taste of winter showing up.
This morning’s temps in the 20s will warm into the upper 40s and low 50s this afternoon. Skies will stay partly sunny, so we have that going for us.
A strong cold front zips in here on Monday with gusty winds and a few showers and thunderstorms. Temps will briefly spike into the 60s before much colder air slams in Monday night. Readings by Tuesday morning will be back into the hard freeze range.
A much stronger system works our way on Wednesday with an increase in showers and thunderstorms. Gusty winds will also be a big player as temps tank on Thursday:
An upper level system dives into the region late Thursday into Friday and could produce snow showers and flurries…
Highs on Thursday drop through the 40s and may not get out of the upper 30s by Friday. Wow! If skies can clear Friday night… LOOK OUT. Record shattering temps would be possible…
To put that in perspective, there have only be 3 times Lexington has ever hit the teens during the month of April. 1982 and twice in 1875.
Enjoy your Sunday and take care.
