Changes by the weekend

Good Thursday to one and all. It’s another picture perfect spring day across the bluegrass state, but that all changes by the upcoming weekend. That’s when a cold front sweeps into the region and brings a change in temps and showers and storms.

Let us begin with today and roll forward. Highs will top out from 65-70 in most of central and eastern Kentucky as partly sunny skies roll on.

Clouds will slowly increase overnight with the potential for a shower or storm around by Friday morning. That storm chance will carry us through Friday with temps back in the 60s.

Winds are going to increase in a hurry as our weekend system rolls into the state.

Showers and storms will increase on Saturday as our cold front moves in. Leftover showers linger into early Sunday as chilly winds blow back in. There remains a small window of opportunity for some flake action late Saturday night and Sunday morning:

The below normal temps hang around into early next week before a warming trend settles in as we head deeper into the first week of April.

I think this leads us into a warmer than normal April for our part of the world. It’s also likely to become a very busy setup for some big thunderstorms. The new rainfall run of the European Weeklies from WeatherBell show this busy setup:

Have a terrific Thursday and take care.
