The Easter weekend is not off to the greatest start. Showers and mist have been off and on so far today as temperatures continue to fall. A stubborn low and even peskier upper-level low will hang around the Ohio Valley into Saturday. This will keep more of the same in the forecast. Things will unfortunately get worse before they get better. But the improving conditions will arrive when it counts.

Can’t sugar coat this one, Saturday won’t be the prettiest of days. It’s going to be raw, gray, and breezy as wrap-around showers move through the Bluegrass. Highs will struggle to climb even a few degrees into the mid 40s. Best to move any Easter egg hunts indoors, or delay them until Sunday afternoon. The showery conditions will finally taper off Saturday night. Easter Sunday will be a literal ray of sunshine. It will still be cloudy and brisk for sunrise services. All and all the showers will dry up, clouds will part for late-day sun, and temperatures will return to the mid 60s.​
