8am: 59° 9am: 62° 10am: 64° 11am: 66° Noon: 70° 1pm: 74° 2pm: 75°

A STORMY SATURDAY:
While it won't rain all day, we will have period of showers and thunderstorms, with the late-day storms expected to be the strongest. First, a warm front is lifting northward into Central Kentucky this morning setting off the first round of showers. Around Midday, some sunshine may break through as highs reach into the mid to upper 70s. This will help increase instability by late afternoon as a cold front approaches. There is a slight risk for severe storms this afternoon and evening with the potential for locally damaging winds, large hail, heavy downpours, and even a few tornadoes. The rainy, stormy weather will move out by early Sunday morning.

CLOSING OUT APRIL:
Cooler-than-average temperatures will be the story through much of next week. The only real shot for rain shows up Wednesday. Early week highs will top out in the 60s before some warming late in the period.
