Heavy rain to start the weekend

Good Friday, folks. We have rounds of heavy rain and thunderstorms rolling in to kick off the weekend. This action is courtesy of a slow-moving low-pressure system working on top of the Bluegrass State.

We will have some breaks in the rain Friday, but it will quickly fill back in from west to east into the evening. Highs range from the middle 60s to low 70s, depending on where you live:

Additional rounds of heavy rain and storms will then swing eastward Friday night through Saturday. Rain totals through the weekend could average from 1 to 3 inches:

Local high-water problems are a possibility.

The showers will really decrease quickly Sunday, with areas across the north and west seeing much better weather settling in. This shows up well on the forecast temp map:

Things will turn warm very quickly early next week as highs head toward the low 80s. A few thunderstorms will then roll in toward the middle of the week, but a hot pattern looks to take over by the end of the week and next weekend:

Folks, I could see highs flirting with 90 degrees in this kind of setup! That could fire up thunderstorms and potential severe weather from the Plains into our region.

Make it a great day and take care.
