A warming trend commences Friday, returning us to well above normal temperatures by this weekend, with highs from the middle 70s to near 80 degrees Saturday through Monday. As winds increase, fire danger will be heightened mainly for western Kentucky from the Land Between the Lakes eastward. As the high moves southeastward through Friday, we will enter into an active pattern with multiple chances of showers and storms. Saturday looks sunny for most of the day with highs in the mid 70’s.

Other than an isolated shower Saturday night, Easter Weekend looks to stay mostly dry and warm. Instability will increase on Sunday, but the best chances for rain and storms will be along a cold front that will approach Monday and make passage sometime Monday night into Tuesday. Locally heavy rain is possible with the storms. The parameters are certainly favorable for severe weather potential but it is too early to pinpoint the locations affected. Behind the cold front, colder air arrives with lows falling below freezing again Tuesday night and Wednesday morning.

A Thought: Fill your life with adventures, not things. Have stories to tell, not stuff to show. Be somebody who makes everybody feel like somebody. One of the best lessons you can learn in life is to master how to treat someone with kindness. Learn how to walk God’s path uprightly, how to sleep well and be at peace at night. As the winds howl, face the storm on your own two feet without fear. Treat everyone fairly but only give your moments of trust and peace to the one willing to hold your hand and walk with you through the storm. But…If you have to hesitate choosing between me and someone else…pick them. Onward and Upward.
