A few strong to severe storms could come in the wee hours of Thursday.
Damaging winds and large hail are the main players, but we will also have to watch the local flash flood threat. A corridor of 2″-4″ rains may try to set up somewhere across our region. Parts of the state are under a Flash Flood Watch.
This action clears out for a cooler Kentucky Oaks Day with temps in the 60s for many. Kentucky Derby Day is looking warmer now with temps upper 30s to low 40s to start and low and middle 70s during the afternoon. Derby Day will be a winner.
Temps spike to around 80 by Sunday and into early next week as humidity enters the mix for the first time this spring. The resulting pattern should turn stormy with rounds of thunderstorms a good bet.
