April starts on a chilly note

Good Monday, folks. April is off and running on a very chilly note, but milder times are on the way. The forecast for the rest of the week brings an increase in temperatures and an increase in thunderstorms. That increase may be just in time for the opening of the spring meet at Keeneland.

Let’s begin with today and roll forward. Temps are in the 20s this morning and will warm into the upper 40s to low 50s this afternoon. Skies will stay partly to mostly sunny.

A storm system is developing off the southeastern seaboard today and rolls up the coast on Tuesday. It may get close enough for a shower in the southeastern part of the state.

After that, temps hit the 60s on Wednesday and may surge to near 70 for that first day in Keeneland on Thursday. This is ahead of a storm system moving in from the west that will throw some showers and storms in here. Those may last into Friday:

Temps stay mild behind that system as we clean the sky up for Saturday into early Sunday. But, the next system shows up with the potential for more showers and strong storms…

Over the next few weeks, the Gulf of Mexico become wide open for business. You can see that from the Ensembles 2 week rain forecast…

That’s a stormy look as we head into the beginning of the true severe weather season.

Make it a great Monday and take care.
