Good Thursday, everyone. Mild air has taken control of the pattern for a few days, but my focus is now on the weekend and the increasing storms threat. It’s a setup that could bring a lot of wind and rain to the bluegrass state.
Before we get to that, temps hit the 70s today and Friday on a strong southwesterly wind. Gusts may reach 40mph at times.
Saturday continues to look mild, but a huge system will be working slowly in from the west. This will touch off the potential for strong to severe storms Saturday into Saturday night:
Our weekend storm system will bring the first round of showers and storms into western Kentucky by Friday night. Strong to severe storms are very possible. That line works eastward into Saturday morning, with additional heavy rain and storms developing later in the day. That action continues into Sunday:
We will need to be on guard for the potential for high water issues developing. Check out the rain numbers now showing up on the GFS:
Winds will also be a huge player through the entire weekend.
Much colder air then comes into play late Sunday into Monday. That strong northwesterly wind may also spit out some rain and snow showers on Monday:
Have a great Thursday and take care.
