Good Sunday to one and all. The month of April is about to run out of days, and we are sending the month out on an appropriately chilly note. Hang in there because a major warm up is on the way to begin the merry month of May.
Our Sunday starts with frost and temps in the 30s. Sunny skies may not do very much at all to boost our temps very much. Normal highs today are into the low 70s, but we may stay more than 10 degrees colder than that:
Another frost is likely Sunday night and Monday morning with temps back into the 30s:
That’s an appropriate final morning of a very cold April. This has been one of the coldest March-April combos you will ever find across Kentucky.
Monday afternoon starts the warm up with highs reaching 70-75 for many. 75-80 shows up on Tuesday, with highs hitting the 80s by Wednesday and Thursday. That’s on a strong southwest wind that will also make it feel a little humid around here.
The threat for thunderstorms appears to hold off until late Thursday, as much of the action stays in the plains during this time:
Our best chance for showers and strong storms looks to come on Kentucky Oaks Friday:
The models are trying to push that front through here by early on Derby Day, which would give us improving skies and cooler temps. Still, it’s going to be a close call.
Make it a sensational Sunday and take care.
