Good Saturday, everyone. We are a week away from the Kentucky Derby and frost is in the forecast. Green thumbs are on high alert Sunday and Monday mornings as another spring chill settles in. Once this leaves… We may go straight into a summer feel for Derby week.
Temps out there today and Sunday will be well below normal, with several areas struggling to get to 60 degrees:
There is a tiny chance for a shower on Saturday, especially in the east. Much of the weekend will feature a great looking sky.
A GREEN THUMB ALERT is out for Sunday morning as temps drop toward freezing or below:
Another kiss of frost is likely Sunday night with temps dropping into the middle 30s for many.
After this, temps take off. Highs on Monday reach the low 70s, with 80 degree highs possible by Tuesday. This strong southwest flow is really going to boost our temps. Don’t be surprised if we hit the middle 80s by Wednesday and Thursday. The models are trending in this direction…
Humidity levels will also increase, leading to the threat for showers and storms. Storm chances increase by the end of the week and into Kentucky Derby Weekend:
Some of the storms may be strong or severe.
Make it a great Saturday and take care.
