The calendar says late February, but it has felt more like late April this week here in Kentuckiana and this Thursday will be no exception. Temperatures this morning are mild into the upper 50s so it will be pleasant as you head out the door. Despite more clouds and the chance of a few isolated showers, it will be another warm day with highs into the low and mid-70s! A gusty southwest wind will bring even warmer air in for Friday with highs in the upper 70s! If we reach our forecast high of 78 degrees on Friday, it would tie the warmest February day ever here in Louisville. A strong cold front will move through late Friday and into early Saturday with a few strong to severe storms possible followed by much cooler air for the upcoming weekend. Highs will only be in the mid and upper 40s Saturday and Sunday but it will be dry. Our rain chances will pick up again early next week but so will our temperatures with highs in the 50s Monday and surging into the mid-60s on Tuesday. Have a great Thursday!
