Good Thursday to one and all. We have a taste of summertime moving into the bluegrass state over the next few days. These toasty temps will take us through the weekend and may roll through much of next week.
A few showers and thunderstorms may accompany this taste of summer from time to time.
Let us begin with today and move ahead. Temps are in the 75-80 degree range with a mix of sun and clouds. Even warmer air pushes in here tonight and Friday and that could be introduced by a few rounds of showers and storms.
The best chance is across the north and east and this is the area the Storm Prediction Center is highlighting for some potential strong or severe storms:
Highs will be deep into the 80s for much of the state as humidity levels ramp it up a bit. As we head into Saturday, temps continue to run well into the 80s with a slight chance for a few storms going up. You can see that action ahead of our plains storm system:
That system to our west will roll into the area on Sunday bringing a much better chance for showers and thunderstorms. A few of these storms could be strong or severe:
After that blows through here, things turn much better for Monday as our warm pattern keeps going. But, another cold front heads our way by later Tuesday and Wednesday. That could bring another round of big boomers our way.
Here are your radars to track the storms just to our north:
Have a great Thursday and take care.
