Ugly Weather Wraps Up April

Good Thursday, everyone. It’s been a wetter than normal and cooler than normal month, so it’s fitting for April to end with chilly showers. As we flip the calendar to May, our temps get set to soar this weekend. That’s the good news. The bad news is… it won’t last for long.

Let’s begin with today and roll forward. Winds are very gusty from the northwest and may reach 30mph at times as temps range from the upper 40s to middle 50s. Numerous showers will be around for many, especially central and eastern Kentucky…

It’s not the perfect setup, but I’m wondering if we can get a cold air funnel out of this? Hmm

Clouds will slowly break up from west to east on Friday and there could even be a leftover shower early. The high temps for Friday are up a bit on the Euro…

What would have been Kentucky Derby Saturday looks awesome with plenty of sun and temps that are very warm…

Sunday could be even warmer with the potential for 80-85 degree temps showing up for a little more of the state…

That will be on a gusty southwest wind ahead of our next system working in here late Sunday into Sunday night. This could bring a line of strong storms to town…

Temps rebound behind that, but the next system quickly zips in by the middle of the week. That one may bring more ugly our way later next week…

The pattern continues to be skewed colder than normal into the middle of May and could set us up for a late season frost threat at some point. The GFS Ensembles are skewed way colder than normal…

There are really only two weather patterns that upset me… Cold in the spring and warm around Christmas. Guess I’ve been upset a lot lately, huh? 🙂

Have a great day and take care.
