Stormy setup ahead

Good Wednesday to one and all. It’s another gorgeous day in the making for central and eastern Kentucky, but stormier times are just around the corner. We’re tracking two different systems ready to impact the region from Friday through Monday.

As always, let’s begin with the precious present. We have a mix of sun and clouds across the region today as temps reach the upper 60s to low 70s.

Southwesterly winds kick into high gear on Thursday, boosting temps into the upper 70s to near 80. The day is a dry one, but that changes Thursday night and Friday morning when a cold front arrives. This will have a band of showers and storms along it. Winds will also be a big player and could reach 40mph at times.

Things clean up pretty quickly Friday afternoon and evening and this nice weather lasts into much of the daylight hours Saturday,

but a much bigger system rolls in quickly later in the day and takes us through the rest of the weekend. Showers and storms arrive from the southwest late Saturday and that may impact Thunder Over Louisville.

This is a very potent storm system:

After a brief cool down by Monday, temps rebound in a hurry by the middle of next week. Another 80 degree run is possible ahead of the next big storm:

As mentioned, this is a rather stormy setup taking shape.

Have a good day and take care.
