Good Friday to one and all. We have a cold front blasting the region today, bringing more rounds of showers and storms. The big news is what comes behind this front for the final few days of May and the beginning of June. Temps are going to be absolutely awesome during this time.
oday’s showers and storms are scattered early, but may come together into more of a line this afternoon and evening. There’s still a low end threat for a strong or severe storm going up. Here’s the current Severe Weather Outlook from the Storm Prediction Center:
This action sweeps through pretty quickly this evening, then it’s game on toward some fantastic weather. Saturday highs are in the 70-75 degree range for many with a mix of sun and clouds. That sets the stage for lows in the 40s by Sunday morning across central and eastern Kentucky:
Highs on Sunday may not make it above 70 in some areas. Lows by Monday morning may flirt with a record or two for the first day of June:
Temps are back to around 70 in the east and upper 70s west.
Temps begin to warm on Tuesday and most of us are deep into the 80s Wednesday. That will be ahead of a weak front dropping in from the north. That boundary may make it into Kentucky then slow down as a big heat ridge builds into the plains and Mississippi Valley. The Euro wants to put our region on the cusp of the real deal heat late next week into the following weekend. That could put us in the ring of fire for big thunderstorm complexes dropping in from the northwest:
