Good Saturday everyone. We have a few showers and storms kicking off a much warmer weekend across the bluegrass state. This action is on the leading edge of a warm front that is lifting northward across Kentucky today and this means quite the temp spread before the warm wins the battle.
The greatest threat for showers and storms today will be across the northern half of the state. You can track this action on regional radar…
The temp map today may look fairly wild with a 20 degree temp spread from north to south possible into early this afternoon. The warm air will eventually win the battle and balance things out with temps across the north warming up by late today.
That wills set the stage for a warm Sunday with highs heading toward the lower 80s under partly sunny skies.
As our temps warm… the plains states will likely see one heck of a tornado outbreak today. That stuff will stay well to our west through the weekend. That storm will work into the Great Lakes on Monday and will drag a cold front across Kentucky. This front will touch off scattered showers and thunderstorms during the afternoon and evening and a few of these could be strong.
Temps will dip closer to normal behind this front on Tuesday before warming back up again for the middle and end of next week.
Have a sensational Saturday and take care.
