Good Friday, everyone. Our big Mother’s Day weekend is kicking off with a surge of summer air rolling into the region. This air will be more typical of July than the middle of May, and could put us close to record highs.
As the warmer air moves in today, a shower or thunderstorm can’t be ruled out:
Highs are generally topping out in the lower and middle 80s.
Saturday will feature a mix of sun and clouds with temps in the middle and upper 80s for much of the region. Western Kentucky may hit 90.
Mother’s Day temps also surge deep into the middle and upper 80s with some low 90s in the west:
There’s the chance for a late day thunderstorm, but much of the day looks dry. Humidity levels will also climb, making it feel a few degrees hotter than the actual temps.
The steamy temps will stay with us through next week, but the pattern is looking pretty darn stormy. A stalled front may hang out across the Ohio Valley, with deep moisture streaming in from the south. That could produce rounds of storms across our part of the world…
Make it a great day and take care.
