Friday Evening Update

Good evening and welcome to the final weekend of April. We are ending the month with a good looking sky, but the temps could be better. The numbers drop over the next few days, with the potential for frost and a light freeze. From there, May looks to start with soaring temps and the increasing threat for thunderstorms.

Speaking of, isolated showers and storms may be noted this evening, but most stay dry…

This is with a cold front dropping in from the north, ushering in a late April chill to the air. Highs this weekend will be well below normal and may struggle to get to 60 in some areas…

There is a tiny chance for a shower on Saturday, especially in the east. Much of the weekend will feature a great looking sky.

A GREEN THUMB ALERT is out for Sunday morning as temps drop toward freezing or below…

Another kiss of frost is likely Sunday night with temps dropping into the middle 30s for many.

After this, temps take off. Highs on Monday reach the low 70s, with 80 degree highs possible by Tuesday. This strong southwest flow is really going to boost our temps. Don’t be surprised if we hit the middle 80s by Wednesday and Thursday. The models are trending in this direction…

Humidity levels will also increase, leading to the threat for showers and storms. Storm chances increase by the end of the week and into Kentucky Derby Weekend…

Some of the storms may be strong or severe.

Enjoy the rest of your evening and take care.

Frost Before A Warm Derby Week

Good Friday, everyone. Our week is ending on a fairly nice note, but a blast of chill is on the way for the weekend. That will bring another frost threat into town, with even the potential for a light freeze. Hang in there, my friends, a warmer pattern continues to evolve for Kentucky Derby Week.

Temps today are generally in upper 60s and low 70s. Enjoy!!. There is the slightchance for a shower or thunderstorm, but most will stay dry…

This winds will really crank on Saturday, with a push of colder air moving in during the afternoon and evening. This MAY touch off isolated showers in the east, but the big news is the cold air coming in behind this. Lows by Sunday morning head toward the low 30s…

Green Thumbs are on high alert. Highs on Sunday may not make it to 60 across the central and east, even with nearly full sunshine.

This air is cold enough for some flakes to fly as close by as the high ground of the West Virginia Mountains…

Following another frost threat to start Monday, temps rebound quickly and really take off. This comes from a big warm ridge of high pressure across the eastern half of the country…

Temps may hit the 80s across Kentucky, with summer temps just to our south and east…

Rounds of showers and thunderstorms will then fire up by the second half of next week. Will those hang around to impact the Kentucky Oaks and the Kentucky Derby? That depends on just how quickly this front moves east.

I will have another update later today. Make it a good one and take care.
