All right gang, it’s forecast time. We’re off to the home of the University of Kentucky for our forecast today.
At 1154AM, ET, Lexington was reporting clear skies and a sultry 91 degrees, with a dew point of 73 degrees. A cold front is moving through the northern Great Lakes, and some prefrontal instability was leading to bands of clouds in the eastern Great Lakes. The strongest prefrontal trough has started to touch off some deeper convection over northern Indiana and Ohio.
The boundary itself will arrive in northern Kentucky around midday on Friday, and through that time, this afternoon and tomorrow morning, there will be a threat for some showers and storms. A strong area of high pressure is building in behind the boundary, and a quick turn towards sunny skies after the Friday morning showers is expected. Saturday in particular looks fantastic.
