Mild temps ahead of a few storms

Good Saturday, everyone. It’s the first weekend of April and it’s off and running on a very pleasant note around here. The awesome temps out there today will continue into early next week, but a few storms look to join in on the spring party.

Once into late next week, the whole pattern looks like it wants to flip around to something more typical of winter. Ugh.

Let’s start with today and move ahead. Highs today are in the upper 60s to low 70s across central and eastern Kentucky. A few clouds will show up, but any shower or storm will stay just to our west:

The threat for scattered showers and storms will then increase across the state on Sunday as a front washes out near us:

Temps Sunday will likely come down a few degrees compared to what we have today, especially in the north.

The numbers climb again for Monday through Wednesday and should be deep into the 70s. Unfortunately, the chance for a few showers and storms will also be on the increase:

We will have to be on guard for a few strong storms during this time.

A cold front offers a glancing blow of cool weather by Thursday and Friday, but the pattern after that looks more like something we would see in the winter months. The EURO is showing a deep trough across the eastern half of the country:

Look at that blocking over Alaska and Greenland. Where the heck was that a few months ago? Ugh.

That may fire up another big storm that unleashes cold air behind it:

We have had April flakes many times before, so it’s not entirely out of the realm of possibilities.

Have a great day and take care.
