Sunny and warm through Friday, watching weekend storms

Lows tonight will range from the low 40s north, to near 50° south, with an east wind 10-15 miles per hour. A normal April day would have a high near 80 but this Monday the high could be in the upper 60's. It has a great radar built in, and alerts you to severe weather warnings, lightning, or even nearby rain. Enjoy today because some stormy weather is on the way as our next storm system is set to move in on Friday. The Storm Prediction Center has areas along and west of Hwy 63 under a slight risk for severe weather. We aren't expecting any early day development to become severe. By afternoon more intense thunderstorms will form to the west over eastern MS in response to strong dynamic forcing, and those will move through our state late Saturday afternoon and Saturday night.

Christenson says this week is so important, especially with severe weather season right around the corner. So our western counties need to be ready for very windy conditions to take place again on Friday.

Sunday will bring a potent cold front into the area. Highs for Thursday and Friday should reach the 70s for much of central and eastern Kentucky. Be prepared for heavy rainfall.

If you don't already have it, download our free weather app, "ANN Weather" on the google play/iTunes App store.

However as we saw last weekend an isolated tornado will be possible as well.

In addition to the severe weather threat, the state's southeast half could see up to 6 inches of rain between Friday morning and Saturday evening. Temperatures will be falling through the 60s, and bottom out overnight in the middle and low 50.
