Good Friday to one and all. Our Kentucky Derby weekend is officially off and running and it looks like some storms may become an issue out of the gate. Scattered showers and thunderstorms will fire up across the state today and some of these bad boys may be strong or severe into this evening.
This is a warm and humid pattern that may repeat itself into Kentucky Derby Saturday. Some thoughts:
- A few rounds of storms will work from northwest to southeast across the region later today into this evening.
- Some storms could be strong or severe with hail and high winds.
- Highs today will generally run in the low and mid 80s. Storms and clouds will play a big role in local temps.
- Derby Day looks similar with some more scattered action around. Let’s hope it all avoids Churchill Downs.

I will have updates as needed and send out quick thoughts via twitter. Happy Oaks Day and take care.
