Good Thursday, folks. Springtime in Kentucky can often mean some ugly stuff, and that’s exactly what we have out there for the next few days. Colder air and even the potential for a few snowflakes highlight the ugly forecast.
Colder air is blowing across the region Thursday, with a few gusty showers on the move. It’s not going to rain all day, but you don’t want to be caught outside without the umbrella. Highs will have a tough time getting out of the 40s.
If you’re heading out to watch the Lexington Legends season opener, it looks chilly with the chance of a shower.
A similar setup is there for the opening of the spring meet at Keeneland. Winds will be very gusty, with scattered showers and highs only in the low and middle 40s.
If we are to see a few snowflakes, the most likely chance would be Friday night and early Saturday as another system dives in from the northwest:
Check out how far below normal this air is for Saturday:
Highs should range from the upper 30s to the low 40s. As skies clear Saturday night, lows will again drop into the low and middle 20s.
Milder air moves in late Sunday and Monday. That’s ahead of another storm system with additional showers and thunderstorms:
That should send our temps back into the below-normal range:
Make it a terrific Thursday and take care.
