Today has been wonderful with plenty of sunshine to go along with the rebound in temperatures. A breezy southwesterly wind was responsible for the 30-degree jump in temperatures leading us into the low 70s for Central and Eastern Kentucky. The breeze has been a little choppy making 10-25 mph sustained and gusts as high as 30 mph. Overall, not a bad way to spend a Tuesday.

Wednesday brings a very similar weather pattern, except for more cloud coverage. Expect a breezy southwesterly wind again, and temperatures will push into the mid-70s for afternoon highs. The radar stays clear for one more day, but storms are on the western horizon. Thursday looks mainly dry, although a few rogue and light showers are possible through the day. The better chance comes late day or evening as a cold front works closer to us. You can expect Thursday to be a breezy, warm, and humid day. The front will deliver heavy rain and strong thunderstorms overnight into Friday and most of the day as well. Temperatures drop sharply after the frontal passage, so expect much cooler weather for late week and early weekend. In fact, temperatures will be downright cold for both Easter weekend morning. However, the weather improves dramatically for sunlight hours on Easter Sunday.
