It warms before it storms

Good Monday, everyone. Our work week is kicking off in gorgeous fashion as warmer air is pressing back in here. This warm air will soon be joined by rounds of showers and thunderstorms, with the potential for a few severe storms later in the week.

Let us begin with our Monday and roll forward. Highs today are in the low and middle 70s across eastern Kentucky, with 75-80 in the bluegrass region. Enjoy!

Highs over the next few days should be able to reach the 80-85 degree range. A few middle 80s will be possible across the state:

The threat for a few showers and storms will move back in on Tuesday, mainly in the west and north. This sets the stage for rounds of thunderstorms to target the region later Wednesday through Thursday night. This continues to have the look of a severe weather producer from the Mississippi Valley into the Ohio Valley and points south:

Much cooler air is likely to move in behind that, kickstarting a cooler than normal period for much of the central and eastern part of the country. Check out the GFS Ensembles into next week:

The threat for rain and some storms may return as early as this coming weekend or early next week.

Have a great day and take care.
