Good Sunday everybody. What a weather weekend we are wrapping up. The temperature spread on Saturday was nothing short of crazy with a nearly 40 degree spread from north to south. Large hail producing storms slammed a few parts of the state as the day wrapped up. The upcoming week is going to be dominated by warm temps and rounds of storms.
Today will feature another nice temp swing across the state as a warm front slowly works back to the north. There will be the threat for a stray shower or thunderstorm as the warm air FINALLY begins to win the battle.
This will set us up for temp pattern that may threaten record highs before the week is over. As a matter of fact… it’s not out of question that a few spots can hit 90 degrees. Yep… I said it. Take a look at the numbers coming off the GFS…
The other thing to keep an eye on will be the thunderstorm threat this week. It’s an environment that is ripe for a few rounds of booming storms and some of these can be strong or severe. The SPC has far western Kentucky in a slight risk today and carries that risk a little farther north and east on Monday…
This same pattern looks to continue into the upcoming Kentucky Derby Weekend. I will be talking more about that forecast over the next few days.
Have a great Sunday and take care.
