Good Friday, folks. We have a strong cold front heading toward the bluegrass state and this will bring an increase in showers and storms. This kicks off a very active and wet pattern through the middle of next week. The good news in all this? It’s turning MUCH cooler.
Any shower or storm this morning into this afternoon looks scattered. Outside of the storm action, temps are still well into the steamy 80s.
As the front gets closer, a broken line of showers and storms will roll our way this evening and some of those could be on the strong side. This may impact some high school football games.
The Storm Prediction Center has our region in a low-end Severe Storms Threat:
That front then slows down right on top of the region into the weekend, bringing more rounds of rain and much cooler air into the state through Monday:
Heavy rain producing showers and storms continue Tuesday and Wednesday as another powerful front drops in from the northwest:
You will also notice something spinning off the southeast seaboard. I talked about that a few days back.
Two more systems dive into our region late next week into the following weekend. Each will bring more rain, with cold air coming in behind the two:
Temps go MUCH colder than normal during this time, with the potential for an early season frost.
Before we worry about that, I’m becoming more worried about more high water issues. All of these systems passing through here over the next week will put down a ton of rain. Look at the numbers from the European Model:
I have you all set for some Friday storm tracking:
Make it a great day and take care.
