Scattered, strong to severe thunderstorms are developing across the southern half of our area, early this afternoon.  Hail has already been reported in parts of Owsley, Morgan and Harlan Counties.  Storms will slowly drift east at 15-20 mph, with potential for hail to 1" and winds to 60 mph within the strongest parts of these thunderstorms.  Later today and into the evening and overnight, additional thunderstorms will be possible farther north, even into northern parts of our area as a disturbance approaches from the Midwest.  A new front will arrive from the northwest on Wednesday, and it will slowly cross the area on Wednesday and Thursday, producing a more widespread round of showers and thunderstorms that will slowly shift south on Thursday.  Temperatures will trend downward, with highs in the lower 60s on Thursday.  Good Friday should be dry and cool in the Bluegrass Region, but a lingering shower or two could occur in southeastern Kentucky early in the day.  Saturday will be a beautiful, partly sunny day with highs near 70 degrees.  Easter Sunday will begin dry, but some spotty thunderstorms will accompany a fast-moving front, most likely in the afternoon.  Cooler air will return on Monday of next week, with highs in the middle 60s and isolated shower and thunderstorms still possible.
