A Flash Flood Watch remains in effect across most of eastern and southeastern Kentucky until 2 AM on Thursday Morning.
Thunderstorms are strengthening and expanding this afternoon, drifting slowly to the east across the region. Most, if not all areas, will receive at least one thunderstorm. Some of today's storms will bring additional hail, straight-line winds and potential for additional flash flooding, with the strongest storms in southeastern Kentucky. Highs will peak near 74 degrees today. We'll take another big step down into the cooler air tonight as lows fall to 45 degrees in Lexington. Thursday will be a bit cooler with highs near 60 as scattered showers and t-storms continue, especially to the south of I-64, along a stalled front. High pressure will return on Good Friday, and we'll see partly sunny skies with highs near 60. Saturday will be mostly sunny with a high in the upper 60s. On Easter Sunday, a fast-moving but moisture-starved cold front will arrive from the west, and it may be just enough to spark a few showers and scattered thunderstorms. A second and stronger cold front will arrive on Monday, producing more showers into Monday and Tuesday, but they will not cover much ground. Tuesday will begin a stretch of unseasonably chilly weather.
