Good Wednesday to one and all. Our temperatures are FINALLY starting to warm, with readings heading toward late May levels for a few days. Let’s make sure to enjoy it, because storms and colder weather are ready to crash back in. Sigh.
Temps out there today will be in the 60-65 degree range for many. Skies should feature some clouds and sun battling it out.
Low and middle 70s settle in for Thursday, with Friday looking even warmer. That’s when temps make a run at 80 on a strong southwesterly wind. That wind is ahead of a potent storm system rolling into Kentucky for the upcoming weekend.
The upper levels are loaded with energy and may very well close off on top of us this weekend and early next week. The end result at the surface is for two potent storm systems to develop. The first hangs to our west, dragging a front into the region later Saturday. That may have strong or severe storms ahead of it. As the upper levels close off, another low develops near us, keeping the heavy rain threat going:
That could be a big time wind maker for our part of the world! You can also see how the cold air comes in behind that system by late Sunday or Monday. There’s a chance for a few flakes to fly around here during this time:

The rest of April continues to look active with cold shots dueling it out with increasing shots of spring. The end result could mean additional big storm systems.
Make it a wonderful Wednesday and take care.
