Good Friday to one and al. We are rolling into the weekend on a steamy note, with rounds of thunderstorms ready to develop. These storms come at us in waves this weekend, and could bring some heavy rains back into the bluegrass.
Temps today surge into the mid and upper 80s for much of central and eastern Kentucky, with a 90 showing up in a few spots. Low 90s are possible across the west. A few showers and thunderstorms may fire up later this afternoon into the evening, especially in the north. There is even an outside chance for a few strong storms. Here’s the Severe Weather Outlook from the Storm Prediction Center:
As out cold front settles farther south on Saturday, additional showers and storms will fire up across the bluegrass state. Some of those could be strong or locally severe:
I’m more concerned about the heavy rain potential this weekend into early next week. There’s a lot of moisture available for these storms to tap, so cloudbursts are a possibility once again. We will also need to be on guard for repeat storms moving over the same piece of real estate:
The pattern in the longer range continues to look much cooler, with a deepening trough developing across the eastern half of the country for the second half of June:
As usual, I have you all set to track any of the scattered storms that go up across northern Kentucky today:
Have a fantastic Friday and take care.
