70s Stick Around, Storms On The Horizon

The mild air has arrived and will stick around into the first half of the weekend. A frontal boundary will stall over the Commonwealth on Friday, which will keep showers and a few thunderstorms in the forecast, especially for central and northern Kentucky.  Expect morning lows in the 60s and afternoon highs in the 70s for most of the state. 

The aforementioned front will begin to lift north as a warm front Friday night into Saturday.  Expect breezy winds out of the south on Saturday with highs in the upper 70s to lower 80s.  Although an isolated storm will be possible, most of the rain will hold off until late Saturday into Saturday night.

A cold front will plow across Kentucky Saturday night.  A few storms may be strong ahead of the front, especially in western Kentucky.  The air behind the front will be cooler with highs in the 60s on Sunday.  It will also be windy Sunday with gusts between 30 and 40 mph.  Temperatures will cool further next week with rain returning Tuesday and Wednesday.
