Mild & Breezy Thursday

Most of Kentucky will be around 10 degrees, or more, warmer than yesterday.  This will especially be true for far northern Kentucky, which will be close to 20 degrees warmer.  Our skies will start off with scattered high clouds early today, but those clouds will grow in coverage, leaving us mostly cloudy by the end of the day.  Winds will be breezy from south, occasionally gusting to around 30 mph.

Tonight, most areas will be dry up through midnight.  Then, late tonight showers will be possible for areas in northern and western Kentucky, close to the Ohio River.  Lows will be mainly in the lower 50s.

On Friday, rain chances will increase from west to east through the day.  Areas from near Lexington and points east may not see showers until Friday late afternoon and evening.  Temperatures will continue to be very mild, reaching the lower and middle 60s for highs.

Saturday will be the warmest day with central and eastern Kentucky likely reaching the lower 70s.  However, we’ll be watching for the potential for stronger thunderstorms Saturday midday and afternoon.
