Big weather changes for the weekend

By  | 

Rounds of showers and thunderstorms will continue to rule the weather across the bluegrass state over the next few days. That’s the focus of the short term weather. The longer term is dominated by a huge blast of cold air swinging in for late weekend into early next week.

Additional rounds of showers and storms will go up this afternoon and evening. Locally heavy rain and a ton of lightning will be possible.

A cold front enters the picture on Friday with a little more widespread shower and storm action. We may also run the risk of some strong or severe storms.

The next front that arrives on Saturday will touch off some isolated stuff, but it’s the cold air coming in behind it that steals the show. Temps for Mother’s Day into Monday will have a hard time getting out of the 50s. Monday morning may start with record cold and frost across the region.

The good news is the cold will be short lived and temps will take off by the middle of next week.
