Good Sunday, everyone. We’re wrapping up the weekend with very warm air pushing back into the bluegrass state. This air is going to take up residence in the state for the week ahead, and I don’t think too many people will complain.
Highs today top out in the middle 70s for much of central and eastern Kentucky. Skies should continue to run on the sunny side of life:

Monday’s temps will make a run at 80 degrees with a mix of sun and clouds, and a gusty southwesterly wind. That wind cranks up ahead of a weak cold front dropping in here on Tuesday. This front should be able to touch off a scattered shower or thunderstorm:
That will knock the temps down just a bit, but the warm air takes control again by the end of the week.
The Lexington Legends home opener is on Thursday and the Blue/White spring game for the football Cats is Friday. Things look warm for both:
Rounds of severe storms will begin to target the plains states for the week ahead, then slowly shift back into our region the following week.
This trend shows up well on the 2 week rainfall map from the GFS:
Have a sensational Sunday and take care.
