A great start to Derby weekend

Good Friday, folks. Much better weather is back in the region, and the timing on this is absolutely wonderful. The weekend ends on a much different note, but we will take some of the good stuff when we can get it.

Here’s a breakdown of the big weekend:

  • Some morning clouds and leftover showers will finally pull away from Eastern Kentucky. Sunny skies will take over in the afternoon, with highs in the upper 60s to near 70.
  • Kentucky Derby, Saturday, is a mainly dry and very warm day. Highs will reach 75 to 80 in most areas, with a mix of sun and clouds.
  • There is a threat of thunderstorms late in the day, but most of the action holds off until Saturday evening.
  • Scattered storms will be around into Mother’s Day, with highs in the lower 70s.

The simulated radar from the NAM shows the action from late Saturday into Sunday:


Next week is a mainly warm week with rounds of thunderstorms threatening the region. We need to watch for some strong to severe storms at times. Keep an eye on Tuesday and Wednesday, when some bigger storms are possible:

Make it a great Friday and take care.
