A milder and wilder weather pattern for the weekend

By  | 

A milder and wilder weather pattern is taking shape across central and eastern Kentucky. This all gets started on Thursday as winds, clouds and temperatures increase. Highs will hit the low 50s on a gusty southwesterly wind.

A cold front works toward the region on Friday. This will put the brakes on as it nears the Ohio River. Showers and gusty winds will be common as temps head toward the high 50s.

A deepening area of low pressure will develop along that front on Saturday. This will roll across the western Ohio Valley and produce heavy rain for much of the region. Winds will really gust up and could top 40mph at times. Thunderstorms will grow Saturday night into Sunday morning and some of those could be strong.

Much colder air filters in late Sunday into Monday. Temps early Sunday will be well into the mid and upper 60s. By Monday morning, readings will be in the middle 20s.
