Good Monday, everyone. March was a very wild and wooly weather month in Kentucky, and it’s looking more and more like April wants to continue that trend. We have everything from severe storms and 70s, to the chance for flakes and 20s in the forecast.
Let us begin with our Monday and roll forward.
Morning showers will quickly move away, leaving mostly cloudy skies. There is still the chance for a shower during the day, but much of the time looks dry:
Highs this afternoon reach the low 50s, but may climb tonight as a warm front lifts northward through the region. That could touch off a scattered storm or two, but it will also unleash some very mild temps for Tuesday. Highs will reach deep into the 70s on a strong southwesterly wind.
This is ahead of a strong cold front, bringing showers and storms in here by Tuesday night:
Some of the storms may be strong, with a few trying to go severe. The SPC has us in theenhanced risk:
Damaging wind is the primary player, at this point.
Temps drop some 30-40 degrees behind the front into Wednesday, with the potential of a few flakes flying.
This cold air holds tough through the rest of next week into the following weekend. It gets reinforced by another cold front Thursday night. That may produce some rain and snow as it moves in and slows down. That slowing down then allows for a potential big storm system to develop along the front, targeting the Ohio Valley with rain and snow:
Either way, that doesn’t bode well for the opening weekend for Keeneland or the Lexington Legends.
Make it a great Monday and take care.
