Good Thursday, folks. We have a fantastic day taking shape across Central and Eastern Kentucky. While our temps take off, the threat of scattered showers and thunderstorms will work in for Friday. That’s part of an active setup that takes us into next week.
Highs Thursday will hit 70 degrees under mostly sunny skies. A few clouds will roll in from northwest to southeast later Thursday night. That’s when a few showers and thunderstorms develop across Indiana and Illinois.
Those showers and storms will then slide in here early Friday. Here’s the NAM future radar for Friday morning:
Highs Friday will be in the 60s, with gusty winds blowing across the state. Those winds will blow much warmer air in for the weekend. Highs will hit the mid- and upper 70s for Saturday and Sunday. Can we see 80 degrees? That’s certainly a possibility.
A strong cold front moves in on Monday and will bring showers and thunderstorms our way. This will also being a change to much colder air behind it for Tuesday and Wednesday:
That’s a very chilly blast of air coming in behind the front and could bring frost and freezing temps our way.
Enjoy the great weather and take care.
