Plenty of sunshine will mix with some thin cirrus clouds today. Highs will climb to near 66. Tonight will be cool with lows around 48 under partly cloudy skies, and a stray sprinkle or two may occur to the south and west. Friday will be warmer with highs near 77, and while the day will begin very pleasant, scattered, strong to severe thunderstorms will return to the Bluegrass during the late afternoon and evening. Severe weather is possible across central and northern Kentucky. The cold front sparking the late-Friday storms will exit to the east on Saturday, and some leftover showers may linger into the early part of the weekend. After only a temporary break, another round of showers and thunderstorms will be possible late Sunday and Monday as temperatures soar through the 70s and to near 80 at the start of the workweek. Another well-organized storm system with a cold front will arrive on Tuesday, producing widespread showers and thunderstorms. Cooler air will return with a few lingering showers on Wednesday of next week.
