STILL WARM BUT TURNING UNSETTLED:
Our April Fools Day Tuesday gave us our warmest temperatures of the year so far, soaring into the upper 70s to near 80 with loads of sun and breezy southwest winds! We’ll stay warm through the end of the work week but things are about to turn wetter, and at times, stormy. A warm front pushing slowly northward over the region today may touch off a few widely scattered showers and thunderstorms. Rain chances increase late tonight into Thursday as more disturbances ride eastward into the area. Rainfall could be heavy at times under some of the stronger storms, with small hail possible. Highs today and Thursday will reach the 70s with mild overnight lows only around 60.
As low pressure and a trailing cold front advance through South-Central Kentucky early Friday, there will be potential for some storms to be strong to severe late Thursday night into early Friday morning. A SLIGHT RISK for storms containing gusty winds and large hail is up for much of the region during that period. We’ll dry out Friday afternoon, with highs around 70 to close out the work week.
At this time, Saturday and Sunday look dry but cooler. Highs will be in the lower 60s with overnight lows in the lower 40s.
Another storm system moving northeastward out of the Deep South may send more rain back into the region Monday. Highs remain in the lower 60s early next week.
