Good Saturday, folks. We have a very warm weekend kicking off across central and eastern Kentucky. This warm air will soon be joined by a few showers and thunderstorms sweeping in from the west. It’s all part of a pattern more typical of late April than late March.
Highs today should hit 70-75 in many areas on a strong southwesterly wind flow.
Showers and thunderstorms across western Kentucky will slowly work toward the region by evening. That sets the stage for a stormy night for our region, with scattered storms lasting into Sunday.
Some of the storms could be strong, especially just to our west. I have you all set to track today’s weather:
Once the Sunday storms move away, we will quickly focus on another round of boomers blowing in here late Monday into Tuesday:
Similar systems will then work our way over the next few weeks. This setup continues to feature stormier than normal weather with an increasing severe weather threat. The GFS Ensembles 2 week rainfall forecast shows a lot of action across the eastern part of the country:
Make it a great Saturday and take care.
