It’s going to feel more like early June instead of late April on this Wednesday as we see a surge of warm air here in Kentuckiana for the mid-week. Temperatures this morning are pleasant in the upper 50s and low 60s and we should see a nice warm-up later today. With a south wind at 10 to 15 miles per hour with higher gusts ahead of an approaching cold front to the west along with plenty of sunshine, afternoon highs should reach the mid-80s. The cold front will sweep through Wednesday night and Thursday morning with showers and storms possible early before we dry out with highs in the low 70s. The front will work back northward as a warm front on Friday with more showers and storms possible late day and into early Saturday. This could have an impact on the KDF Great Balloon Fest and the KDF Marathon/Mini so we’ll keep an eye on that. Highs will be in the low 80s on Saturday and Sunday before another cold front brings rain and storms to end the weekend. A quick shot of cooler air will arrive to begin Derby week on Monday with highs in the 60s but warmer temperatures into the 70s will return pretty quickly. Have a great Wednesday!
