A beautiful Easter Sunday on tap for Kentucky and Southern Indiana

With abundant sunshine, afternoon highs should head into the 70s beginning Sunday and continue into next week

LOUISVILLE, Ky. — After a beautiful start to Easter weekend across Kentucky and Southern Indiana, the delightful weather will continue for Easter Sunday and beyond. With high pressure continuing to dominate our weather, it should dry and a bit cool for Easter sunrise services early Sunday. The remainder of the day looks beautiful with abundant sunshine and afternoon highs topping out into the low 70s, so conditions look ideal for any Easter egg hunts through the day. Heading into the first full week of April, our warming trend will continue with afternoon highs into the mid-70s as the dry conditions persists.

Heading into the mid-week, our weather gets a bit more active as a storm system makes a run at the Ohio Valley from the west. The best chances for rain and storms look to be Wednesday night and into Thursday. While it’s still several days away, we’ll have to keep an eye on the strong storm potential as we get a little closer to that time frame. A mid-level wave will spin through to end the week keeping a few showers around as afternoon highs back down slightly into the upper 60s.
