Good Friday to one and all. We have a much warmer pattern finally engulfing the Bluegrass State, just in time for the weekend. That’s the good news. The bad news comes with the potential for showers and thunderstorms to increase.
Highs Friday should reach 70 in many areas, with a mix of sun and clouds. Winds will be gusty from the southwest, ahead of a storm system rolling our way. That will increase our thunderstorm threat late Saturday and Sunday:
Highs ahead of the storms Saturday should reach 70 to 75 in many areas. Once the storms shut off Sunday, highs might rebound to 65 to 70 in most areas.
The flow will then throw another round of showers and storms our way later Monday and Tuesday:
This continues to be part of a very warm and stormy setup. Later next week, a deep trough goes into the western part of the country as a ridge of high pressure flexes some muscle across the southeast. This setup could put the Plains and our region in the target zone for rounds of big storms:
Have a great Friday and take care.
