More steam and storms this weekend

Good Friday to one and all. Our weekend weather looks a whole lot like the pattern we have been seeing for the past week or so. Steamy temps and rounds of storms continue to dominate the pattern across the Commonwealth.

Highs Friday range from 85 to 90 in most of Central and Eastern Kentucky. Muggy air will make it feel a few degrees warmer than that. There will be isolated showers or storms from time to time:

I’m going to be on guard for a complex of storms going up Friday night and early Saturday. That’s not set in stone, but similar patterns have been known to fire up such a system.

Highs on Saturday will be similar to Friday, near 90 for most of the area.

Storms will then become widespread as we head into Sunday and early Monday. That’s when a strong cold front moves in from the northwest:

A few of the storms might be strong and could put down torrential amounts of rain. Given the recent rounds of heavy rain, additional high-water problems are possible in some areas.

Much cooler air then comes for early next week, with highs in the upper 70s and low 80s.

A tropical system might develop in the Gulf of Mexico. If that is the case, it would have a big impact on the overall pattern for the country.

Have a great Friday and take care.
