Spring temps and some storms

Good Thursday, everyone. It’s a windy and mild day across the region, but a few thunderstorms are on the move. These storms won’t last all day, but the potential is there for a few to be strong. The best chance for that appears to come during the overnight hours.

Once we get into the weekend, much better weather blows in here.

Let’s begin with today and roll forward. Temps can easily reach the 70s with a mix of sun and clouds and gusty southwest winds. A shower or storm will be possible once again.

The chance for severe weather increases late this evening into the overnight hours, especially across western and central Kentucky. Here’s the Severe Weather Outlook from the SPC:

Damaging winds, large hail and a few tornadoes will be possible in this region.

That risk area focuses farther east, but in lower fashion for Friday:

Temps will head toward the 70s ahead of the Friday front.

The weather behind all this looks much better for the weekend. Highs will be in the upper 40s to low 50s for Saturday with a mix of sun and clouds. Temps look even better on Sunday as we keep some sun.

The pattern returns to rather mild and stormy for next week and beyond. Check out the Euro Ensembles 10 day temperature anomaly average for the final 10 days of the month:

This warm pattern is likely to spawn additional severe weather opportunities.
