Good Saturday to one and all. Temps out there today are more typical of late June than the middle of May, with readings deep into the 80s. This air hangs tough for several more days as showers and storms slowly increase.
Highs today will reach the middle and upper 80s for most of central and eastern Kentucky. Skies will feature a nice mix of sun and clouds, but the weather looks mainly dry. That said, I can’t rule out a stray storm getting into northern parts of Kentucky. This is an area closer to a severe weather setup later today:
That action tries to sink a little farther south on Mother’s Day as temps continue to run on the steamy side. Highs are back into the middle and upper 80s with an increase in humidity.
The best chance for a late day storm is across the north and northeast, but we will need to be on guard for some of that action getting a little farther south. The Storm Prediction Center has a small risk for severe storms into parts of the state:
The setup for next week continues to look very warm and humid, leading to rounds of showers and thunderstorms. A boundary sets up shop across the Ohio Valley, with a deep supply of moisture coming at us from the south:
Some strong storms and heavy rains are very possible in that setup.
Make it a great day and take care.
