Good Wednesday, folks. We’re inching closer and closer to the big Easter weekend and the weather is looking great… For now. A slow-moving storm system looks to change all that later in the week into the start of the weekend.
Your Wednesday weather looks amazing with highs from 75-80 and a mix of sun and clouds. Southwesterly winds are going to crank as a storm system inches closer to Kentucky.
This system arrives late Thursday into early Friday and brings the potential for showers and storms. The best time for storms holds off until the evening and that’s when a few strong to severe storms will be possible. Here’s the latest Severe Weather Outlook from the Storm Prediction Center:
The extent of that severe threat depends on the exact evolution and timing of our cold front from the west. It appears we will have a fair amount of sun into Thursday afternoon, so that may aid in the development of some pretty good storm action.
The GFS and Euro are both indicating this:
The upper level low spinning in behind this will be right on top of us Friday into Saturday. That could lead to additional rounds of gusty showers and a few storms:
Chilly temps will be noted under that upper low, but milder air moves in quickly as it pulls away. That means we should see much better weather for Easter Sunday as temps could reach 70.
Have a great day and take care.
