Thursday, May 17, 2012: A Beautiful Stretch for Most, Isolated T-Storms South...

Good Thursday morning, folks!

We had a few light rain showers in the Bluegrass Region last evening, and early this morning, a few showers remained in parts of Elliott, Morgan, Carter and Lawrence Counties.  At midmorning, the entire area is dry as a slow-moving cold front continues to drift south across south-central and eastern Kentucky.


Behind the front, we'll have a three beautiful days with more sunshine than clouds across central Kentucky.  Highs will be near 76° today, 82° on Friday and even 84° on Saturday.  The front will eventually stall just to our south, and isolated t-storms will remain possible in far southern and southeastern Kentucky.  All areas near or north of Berea should remain dry until at least Sunday.


The coverage of any TN / VA border showers and thunderstorms will be very limited, and generally confined to the 3 PM to 10 PM time frame over the next three days.


As far as the Thursday and Friday storms are concerned, here is the latest GFS forecast for total precipitation.  You'll notice the coverage will be SLIM, and all areas north of Highway 80 (London, Somerset, Hazard etc.) should generally stay dry.

Enjoy this fantastic stretch if nice, warm weather.  You may want to be poolside this weekend, if there's a pool open early, in your neighborhood!
