Good Saturday to one and all. It’s another very steamy day across the bluegrass state, but changes are on the way. As we make the transition into a cooler brand of air, we will have to be on guard for severe storms late in the weekend.
Let’s begin with today and roll forward. Highs out there on this Saturday will be around 90 for many areas with a heat index in the low 90s. Partly sunny skies could spawn a storm or two at any point:
A strong cold front arrives late Sunday with an increase in showers and storms. Some of these storms could produce damaging winds and large hail. The Storm Prediction Center has much of the region in the severe risk for Sunday:
In addition to the severe threat, very heavy rains will be noted and we could be seeing some flash flooding. A general 1″-3″ of rain will be possible later Sunday through Monday.
Temps behind this front will really come down with highs on Monday only in the 70s:
Nice weather moves in for Tuesday with upper 70s and low 80s and mainly dry skies. Storms may return into the middle of next week as hot temps try to return:
Something tropical may try to develop in the Gulf of Mexico during this time.
Make it a great Saturday and take care.
