Another Surge Of Summer

Good Sunday, everyone. Much milder air is blowing into the bluegrass state today and that mild will turn downright warm as we head into the week ahead. Another taste of June temperatures takes up residence on the area by Tuesday and Wednesday. Could there be a healthy price to be paid for that? Probably so.

Let’s start with the good stuff we have out there today. Highs will warm into the 70-75 degree range with partly to mostly sunny skies. The hum of lawnmowers may fill the air.

Temps hit the upper 70s to around for Monday and Tuesday with a slight chance for a scattered shower or thunderstorm.

Temps will surge into the low and middle 80s for Wednesday and Thursday as another monster storm develops to our west. That will head toward the Great Lakes by Friday and will drag another powerful front across the state. Check it out…


That is likely to lead to a severe weather outbreak from the plains to the east coast. That’s what usually happens when your high temps drop by more than 30 degrees from one day to the next in April…

Warming Temps This Weekend

Good Saturday, everybody. Our weekend is off and running on a chilly note, but warmer temps will surge in before we move close things out. That will likely set the stage for another huge temperature swing and severe weather threat next week.

Temps today will hit the upper 50s to low 60s under mostly sunny skies. Much milder air blows in for Sunday as many areas head into the lower 70s.

Early next week will find our thermometers in the upper 70s and low 80s for highs. That should last until we get into the middle of the week, before it all comes crashing down by Friday. To get from point A to point B… we may have to deal with rounds of strong or severe thunderstorms.

The GFS is a tad quicker…

The amount of cold air across North America continues to be very impressive and it continues to bully spring around.

Have a great Saturday and take care.
