Good Thursday Night,
Rain and storms are starting to surround our area, with pockets of very fast moving storms in the southern part of the state (some moving 80mph!). Some of these storms in the south have had 1″ diameter hail in Kentucky as they race towards us.
There is a line of storms to our west that will move in after midnight through about 3am to our far east. Winds will really pick up as we head into daybreak on Friday.
Expect winds to start out of the southeast at 15-25mph, but increase out of the west later tonight at 15-30, with gusts pushing 45-60mph. This will make for a difficult travel morning on Friday for high profile vehicles. Winds will gradually decrease through the day on Friday with skies slowly thinning out. Highs will be in the upper 50s.
Winds relax, skies clear late Friday night with lows in the lower 40s. Saturday will see mostly sunny skies and a warm day again ahead of our next cold front with highs near 70. Rain will return overnight Saturday night and into early Sunday morning with the front. Temps will get back into the upper 50s on Sunday with clearing skies.
Monday will be our coolest, but most seasonal day, with highs in the middle 50s with tons of sunshine. We will have a few more clouds on Tuesday with highs in the middle 60s. Our next front approaches on Wednesday with rain showers, which will move out early Thursday morning. Behind the front, it will feel like early March instead of early April with highs in the upper 40s.
