Our first weekend of April isn’t looking too bad across Kentucky and Southern Indiana, despite a weakening front dropping into the area on Saturday. High clouds should increase through the afternoon with a few isolated showers possible during the evening and overnight. Afternoon highs will once again be right around the 70-degree mark, which is slightly above average for this time of the year. A bit of cloudiness and a few sprinkles may linger into Sunday but hopefully we’ll a few peeks of sunshine late with highs either side of 70 degrees. The boundary will drift to the south over the weekend, then surge to the north as a warm front late Monday so expect even warmer air to move into Kentuckiana. We could see a few spotty showers to begin the week as the front arcs northward with afternoon highs into the mid-70s.
By Tuesday, our area will be south of the warm from so it will feel a bit more like summer with warm temperatures and a bit more humidity. Scattered showers and thunderstorms will be possible both Tuesday and Wednesday with highs into the mid and upper 70s. A cold front will make a run through the Ohio Valley into Thursday bringing slightly cooler air in, but nothing off the charts for early to mid-April as highs back down a bit into the mid and upper 60s with dry weather expected late next week. Have a safe weekend, stay healthy and don’t forget about social distancing if you have to be out.
