The Cats loss hurt, but hopefully this week’s forecast will help to ease the pain.
April will begin shockingly cold. As the wind relaxes and skies continue to clear overnight, temperatures will drop into the mid 20s. A Freeze Warning has been issued for areas south of I-64, where the growing season has already begun. Protect your tender plants and crops tonight. Temperatures will remain below freezing through the middle of Monday morning. Despite plenty of strong March sunshine, the easterly wind will win out keeping us cool to start the new week, and the new month, with highs only near 50°.
Sunshine rules through mid-week and temperatures are on the way back up. We will get “back to normal” on Tuesday. Temperatures will continue to climb as the overall shifts out of the south. Wednesday will be picture perfect. Opening day for Keeneland and the Legend isn’t looking too bad either. Thursday will be the warmest day of the week, but we are tracking the arrival of showers later in the day. It looks now that’ll hold the showers off until the late evening. More rain and thunderstorms will move through into Friday. Next weekend will be a typical one for spring – warm with scattered storm chances.
