Good Thursday, everyone. Another round of rain is on tap for parts of central and eastern Kentucky today. This comes along with temps that continue to run much chillier than normal. That’s a pattern that takes us through the weekend, before a warm surge settles in next week.
Today’s showers will target southern and eastern Kentucky, with better weather the farther north and west you live. The models are spitting out some pockets of decent rains in the southeast by Friday morning:
Here are your radars to track the showers:
As you can see, the farther north, the better in terms of your Thursday weather. Highs will stay in the 50s for areas getting rain, with upper 60s outside the drops. Normal highs are now creeping into the low 70s.
Another cold front drops in late Friday, bringing a broken band of showers and thunderstorms. Winds will be rather gusty, with… Wait for it… Wait for it… another shot of chill for the weekend. Watch how the temps continue to run much colder than normal:
As a matter of fact, a frost is likely by Sunday morning. There is even the chance for temps to head below freezing and that’s showing up on the GFS:
Temps hit the 70s by Monday, with the potential for 80 degree highs by Tuesday and Wednesday. This will also likely kick off a pattern conducive for thunderstorms to develop. Those storms may be something we have to deal with in the lead up to Kentucky Oaks and Kentucky Derby days.
Make it a great day and take care.
