A Few Storms Start To Show Up

Good Saturday, everyone. The first full weekend of April is off and running on a very nice and mild note. As the weekend wears on, a few showers and storms will begin to develop. That action will increase a bit early next week, before bigger changes continue to show up from late in the week into next weekend.

Temps out there today general range from the upper 60s to middle 70s with a mix of sun and clouds. A scattered shower or storm will be possible across the western half of the state…

The threat for scattered showers and storms will then increase across the state on Sunday as a front washes out near us…

Temps Sunday will likely come down a few degrees compared to what we have today, especially in the north.

The numbers climb again for Monday through Wednesday and should be deep into the 70s. Unfortunately, the chance for a few showers and storms will also be on the increase…

We will have to be on guard for a few strong storms during this time.

A cold front offers a glancing blow of cool weather by Thursday and Friday, but the pattern after that looks more like something we would see in the winter months. The EURO is showing a deep trough across the eastern half of the country…

Look at that blocking over Alaska and Greenland. Where the heck was that a few months ago? Ugh.

That may fire up another big storm that unleashes cold air behind it…

We have had April flakes many times before, so it’s not entirely out of the realm of possibilities.

Enjoy your day and take care.

Milder Weather Before Changes

Good Friday to one and all. Temps continue to climb and those numbers will rise through the weekend into the first half of next week. Eventually, some showers and storms will also be showing up. Later next week into the following week, we are seeing the models trending toward a colder look.

Let’s begin with today and roll ahead. Temps are generally in the mid and upper 60s for many, with a local 70 in the west. Skies show a mix of sun and clouds.

Temps this weekend will range from the upper 60s to the middle 70s across Kentucky. A couple of showers and storms will be possible from late Saturday into Sunday…

Temps early next week will be deep into the 70s and that looks to carry us through Wednesday. The threat for a few storms will increase during this time…

A potent cold front looks to arrive by Thursday, knocking the temps way down. We may see another cold front showing up by next weekend.

Check out the temp anomalies from the EURO…

This trend toward colder is also showing up on the various ensembles. The EURO ensembles for the next 7 days…

The Euro for the following 7 days…

Blah.

Have a happy Friday and take care.

Better Weather Blows In

Good Thursday, everyone. It’s a better weather day rolling into the Commonwealth of Kentucky and that’s a sign of things to come. Much milder air is on the way this through the weekend and into early next week. A little taste of May looks to be with us again during this time, but changes try to show up later next week.

Temps out there today recover to about 60 in the east with mid and upper 60s in the west. A mix of sun and clouds will be noted.

Milder air presses in here for Friday with most areas hitting 65-70 with a similar looking sky.

Our weekend forecast hasn’t changed with windy and mild conditions and the chance for a shower or storm. The best chance for that comes Saturday night into Sunday. Daytime highs range from 70-75 for the most part.

The threat for showers and storms will increase early next week…

Any day featuring more showers and storms will find high temps closer to 70. Any day that features more sun can really crank the numbers…

The models are keying in on a strong cold front arriving during the second half of next week. That could really knock the numbers back down…

Rainfall over the next week or so is highly dependent on any thunderstorm action that flares up. The Euro is showing the streaky nature of any storm action…

Make it a great Thursday and take care.
