Late-spring Feeling

Posted at 8:00 AM, Apr 23, 2019

Tuesday starts with quiet and mild weather around Kentucky. High pressure continues to sit overhead, keeping most of the clouds away. Temperatures are in the upper 50s and low 60s this morning, and we should drop down about 5 more degrees before the sun comes up. Pollen counts are running high again today and will affect those with tree allergies.

We remain in a calm holding pattern thanks to a ridge of high-pressure overhead. Skies will start mainly clear and temperatures are nice and mild this morning, thanks to a southerly wind. As the ridge breaks down some today, the skies will fill with clouds through the day. Still, there will be sunshine around making it a nice one. An incoming frontal boundary looks to bring in a chance for showers and t-showers late in the day. These will affect mainly northern and Bluegrass counties. As the front sags over the state, showers and a few t-showers will continue to fire, especially through the day Wednesday. A connected low will bring in the best chance for rain and storms this week around the Thursday evening time frame. These showers and storms will continue into Friday as the chain of low pressure continues.
