Tracking Heavy Rain Into Kentucky

Good Friday to one and all. We have a lot of rain moving into the region over the next few days. This comes via an area of low pressure working slowly across the region. Much cooler temps will accompany this system, but a MAJOR surge in temps will follow into next week.

A cold front has put the brakes on across the state today, allowing for additional showers and storms to develop. This action will increase as the day wears on with quite the temps swing setting up from north to south. A few of the storms in the south may be strong…

Additional rounds of heavy rain and storms will then swing eastward tonight through Saturday. Rain totals through the weekend may average from 1″-3″…

Local high water issues are a possibility.

The showers will continue into Sunday, but some breaks in the clouds and rain may appear in the west and far north. This shows up well on the forecast high temp map…

Things will turn warm very quickly early next week as temps head toward the low 80s. A few thunderstorms will then roll in here toward the middle of the week, but a hot pattern looks to take over by the end of the week into next weekend…

Folks, I could see temps flirting with 90 degrees in this kind of setup! That setup will also fire up thunderstorms and potential severe weather from the plains into our region…

Have a great Friday and take care.
