A weekend straight out of Summer

Good Friday to one and all. Mother Nature has decided to skip the rest of spring and go straight into the heart of summer. The setup this weekend through next week is more typical of late June.

To complete the summer setup, a few thunderstorms will be noted.

A corridor of thunderstorms will be working across the Ohio Valley today, but much of the action is to our north. Still, we need to watch northern and eastern Kentucky to see if some of those storms slip a littler farther south. Here’s today’s Severe Weather Outlook from the SPC:

Here are your radars to keep you company:

Temps today will be deep into the 80s with humidity levels on the rise. The steamy numbers continue into Saturday with a few storms going up during the afternoon…

A cold front in the plains slowly heads our way on Sunday. That brings a broken line of showers and strong storms from west to east across the state. The very warm setup continues through next week, with another front making a run at us by the middle of the week. That should bring another chance for big boomers.

Here’s how the GFS sees it from Sunday through next week…

Have a fantastic Friday and take care.
