Good news, our morning and early afternoon now look to be safe from showers until late today. Bad news, these showers late today will turn into a Sunday severe storm threat.
Showers Late Today Dampen Evening Plans
Outdoor events look to be mostly safe from showers until the mid-to-late afternoon in the shelter of some dryer air that has slid in over us.
Temperatures today will summit from a chilly morning low of 50 to the comfortable upper 60’s for afternoon highs under cloudy skies which will be perfect for running, baseball, football, lawnwork, etc. until that pesky rain moves in.
The rain will grow heavier as we enter the evening hours due to a rocking and roaring low pressure system heading our way from the Gulf of Mexico.
Sunday Severe Storm Threat
Our severe threat will begin around midnight with the greatest concerns being damaging wind and flash flooding from the heavy rain totaling 1-3 inches by tomorrow afternoon.
More severe thunderstorms are possible tomorrow morning and afternoon with a greater likelihood of damaging winds, hail, and an isolated tornado spinning up in the lines of storms.
Windy conditions are likely even in the breaks between the storms as temperatures reach the humid low 70’s before the strong cold front finally moves through in the mid afternoon.
Cool Down for Early Next Week
The rain ends tomorrow night behind a dramatic cold front. I’m talking pull out the winter coat again for Monday morning because its going to be in the upper 30’s.
Highs Monday will remain chilly in the upper 50’s with sunshine. Quiet and warming weather pervades the extended forecast until Friday which is just the break we need in this wild April of Kentucky weather.
