Good Tuesday, folks. An area of low pressure continues to spin across the bluegrass state today, leading to additional showers and storms. This system slowly moves away, but another one is ready to replace it by Friday.
If you’re looking for some springtime weather, hang tough, it’s coming for Kentucky Derby week. 🙂
As mentioned, today’s weather isn’t the best looking in the world. Locally heavy rains will be noted from time to time. Outside the rains, a few rays of sunshine will be noted. Track the drops:
Highs today will generally range from the upper 50s to low 60s. Those numbers may come down a bit on Wednesday:
From there, a big upper level system dives in from the northwest for Friday and Saturday:
That brings chilly showers our way, to go along with gusty winds. The high ground of the Appalachian Mountains may see some snowflakes out of this setup.
The chilly air will quickly be replaced by a major warm up, and that may start by Sunday. This leads us into Kentucky Derby week, with a big ridge of high pressure controlling our weather:
Temps can make a run at the 80s, but that trough in the west is going to try and kick east later in the week. That may mean a stormy pattern unfolds by Kentucky Derby weekend.
Have a great day and take care.
