Good Saturday to one and all. The weather since Friday has been just about as ugly as you can get it across our part of the world. After we get through another ugly one today, things turn MUCH better just in time for the Easter Bunny to hop into town.
The core of today’s ugly weather is right on top of central Kentucky and that’s where the heaviest rains will fall and where the coldest temps will be. As I’ve been talking about recently, there’s the chance for a few snowflakes to show up in the heaviest precipitation bands. Here’s regional radar to follow along:
Temperatures will be all over the place today. Areas under the core of the upper low won’t stray too far from 40 degrees. Outside of that, the temps will be several degrees warmer and may even reach the 60s in the west.
Showers move away tonight, leaving us with a much better Easter Sunday. Temps are in the 30s to start the day and will finish from around 60 in the far east, to the middle 70s west:
This leads us into another very warm setup through next week and beyond. A few storms will develop during the week, but the warmer than normal pattern continues to take control. The GFS Ensembles show this going through Kentucky Derby Weekend:
Make it a sensational Saturday and take care.
