Good Sunday, folks. It’s been a very nice, albeit cooler than normal, spring weekend in the bluegrass state. Temps out there today will continue to run below average, but it’s mainly dry. All that changes later tonight into the final week of the month, as rainy weather settles back in.
Highs today are generally in the low and middle 60s with clouds increasing. Showers and some thunder will develop across the west and south during the afternoon. That action overspreads the region tonight into Monday. Here are your radars to follow the drops:
That’s from our southern system working through the region, with another system coming in behind it for Tuesday and Wednesday.
The models continue to increase the rain numbers showing up:
Some local high water issues can’t be ruled out, especially in the west and south. Temps through the duration of the two events will run blow normal.
Speaking of below normal, the end of the week into the weekend continues to look crazy chilly for the end of April. This comes from a deep trough digging in here, bringing another round of showers and wind with it:
That’s one ugly setup, with flakes potentially flying not too far from here. We will have to watch and see how it all evolves in the coming days.
Temps still look to recover as we head into Kentucky Derby week. My early impression is for a nice warm up, with thunderstorms making an appearance. At some point this may, we are likely to blow the lid off on this severe weather season.
Have a great Sunday and take care.
