A nice Easter weekend on tap for Kentucky and Southern Indiana

After another freezing start Saturday, milder air will be on the way with highs back in the 60s through Easter Sunday

LOUISVILLE, Ky. — FREEZE WARNING UNTIL 10 AM EASTERN SATURDAY MORNING

Despite another unseasonably cold morning on the way Saturday, the upcoming Easter weekend should feature some delightful weather across Kentucky and Southern Indiana. With cool high pressure sitting over the region along with clear skies and light winds, you’ll need to protect those tender outdoor plants one more time as temperatures drop into the upper 20s and low 30s by Saturday morning. For the 3rd straight night, a Freeze Warning is out for the entire area until 10am Eastern Saturday. Once the sun comes up and gets cranking, a southwest wind will pick up, driving afternoon highs all the way back into the low to mid-60s. 

It shouldn’t be as cold for Easter sunrise services early Sunday with lows in the low 40s with a beautiful afternoon on the way for Easter egg hunts as highs climb into the mid-60s. Our tranquil weather should continue into the early part of next week along with rising temperatures. Monday and Tuesday look really nice with additional sunshine and highs into the mid-70s. By mid to late next week, our weather pattern gets more active as a slow-moving system brings our rain and storm chances back, especially on Thursday and Friday as temperatures stay above average into the upper 60s and low 70s. 

FORECAST:   

TONIGHT: Another freeze, but calm. Low: 32°. Wind: Light South.

SATURDAY: Mostly sunny, breezy and milder. High: 64°. Wind: SW 10-15 mph.

EASTER SUNDAY: Very pleasant. High: 66°. Wind: SW 5-10 mph.
