We’re jump starting the weekend with lots of sunshine and warming temperatures Saturday, as highs climb into the low to mid 80s across the Bluegrass state. Showers and storms should hold off through the afternoon and evening, as another stormy system slowly marches toward Kentucky from the west.
That system is poised to arrive in the form of a cold front late Sunday night into Monday. Ahead of the boundary, warm moist air continues to surge in from the south increasing dewpoints Sunday. This pattern will lead to widespread showers and a few strong thunderstorms for Father’s day. Storms will begin to lose strength once the sun sets, but the wet pattern is back for the day on Monday.
Storm chances will carry us through the beginning of the work week, with isolated to scattered chances for rain and thunder on Tuesday as well. Then the sunshine returns just in time for the end of the week and more importantly, the weekend!
The front will not have much of an impact on temperatures. In fact, there’s not much change in afternoon highs over the next few days. We’re staying in the mid to lower 80s range through the start of next weekend.
