A big blast of relief for the weekend

Good Friday to one and all.  A strong cold front is working across the state today, bringing some big changes for the weekend. Much cooler and drier air is on the way for Saturday and Sunday, and this is exactly what we have been waiting for.

To get there, we have some thunderstorms to go through today. These storms will be more common through the early afternoon and a few could be strong. Just like the past few days, we are on guard for local wind damage. Here are your tracking tools:

Showers and thunderstorms will rumble through from north to south today, with some of the storms possibly being strong or severe. Just like the past few days, damaging winds will be the main player. In addition to that, storms will put down a tremendous amount of rain, leading to local high water issues. I will have your tracking toys in a bit.

Humidity levels will crash tonight into Saturday. That dry air allows temps to bottom out in the 50s for some by Saturday morning. Highs are generally in the lower 80s.

Enough low-level moisture hangs around southern Kentucky for a stray shower or thunderstorm to go up during the afternoon:

That same moisture plume showing up across the deep south and Tennessee Valley lifts back to the north on Sunday, bringing some showers and storms with it:

Even in a cooler and drier pattern… we can’t fully shake the rain chances. This year is absolutely remarkable in terms of the amount of precipitation.

Additional rounds of showers and storms kick in on Monday and may be with us on and off through the week. Some of the medium range models are also trying to develop something off the east coast:

Make it a fantastic Friday and take care.
