Record highs before a severe storm threat

Good Friday to one and all. This is about as wild a spring weather day as you will ever see across our region. Record highs will give way to a severe weather threat rolling into town later in the evening.

Lexington’s record high for the day is 71 degrees from 1944. We should break that mark by noon, with highs reaching the mid- and upper 70s later in the afternoon. This could be one of the five warmest winter days on record for the city. Wow!

A cold front moves in Friday evening with a squall line of strong to severe thunderstorms racing eastward. Damaging winds and isolated tornadoes will be possible.

Much colder air moves in for Saturday, with the threat of a few snow flurries. Highs will only be in the upper 30s to low 40s.

I have you all set to track Friday’s weather:
