Good Friday, folks. June is off and running with some pretty good weather, and the forecast for the weekend is looking much better. Still, changes are coming for late this weekend and next week. These changes will lead to a cooler brand of air.
In the short term, things look awesome. This is great news for the NCAA regional baseball tournament in Lexington. Our Cats are playing at noon Friday, and we should see temps in the middle 70s for the first pitch, with mostly sunny skies.
The rest of the day will see highs in the upper 70s to low 80s under mostly sunny skies. There is just the smallest chance of a storm in the south:

Highs in the upper 60s are possible for a few days in the middle of the week.
Enjoy your Friday and take care.
