Good Friday to one and all. It’s the final day of the spring meet out at Keeneland and, wouldn’t you know, the weather is finally cooperating. Enjoy it because we have another shot of chill coming this weekend. It may be cold enough for frost and freezing temps in some areas.
Highs out there today reach the mid and upper 60s with gusty winds and a mix of sun and clouds. There’s the slightest chance for a shower or storm to develop:
This is ahead of a cold front, with a secondary front arriving on Saturday. That one may also spit out a light shower, but it’s unleashing some pretty cold stuff for the end of April:
Check out the well below normal temps showing up through Monday morning:
Temps by Sunday morning can drop below freezing, setting up the potential for a light freeze:
Sunday afternoon looks absolutely gorgeous, but temps will be slow to respond. Highs may not get out of the 50s for parts of central and eastern Kentucky:
That may set us up with another frosty morning on Monday:
Temps will warm into the 70s on Monday, and may push 80 by Tuesday and Wednesday. That’s when a warm southwesterly wind kicks up across our part of the world. Beyond this, things look to become pretty active with showers and storms on the increase as we get closer to Derby weekend.
Strong to severe storms may develop later next week into the big weekend. Following that, temps are likely to go below normal once again.
Have a great day and take care.
