Happy Tuesday Kentucky! We're kicking off the day with mild temperatures and breezy conditions along with the chance for isolated showers. Unfortunately, the warmer temperatures will come with a price, and that is more clouds and some occasional showers as early as late today and then continuing on and off through early Friday. Rain areas will become more organized through the day Thursday. Chances of precipitation drop to 60 percent Thursday evening.
The winds on Tuesday will also aid in bumping up temperatures along the Rocky Mountain Front. Higher amounts were reported south and west with 12 inches in Franktown, 7 inches in Highlands Ranch, and 7 inches in Evergreen. Activity is expected to begin late afternoon in the eastern South Plains and will continue through the early overnight hours on Tuesday.
However, at least the temperature is still warming up we are in the mid-50s at 2 p.m. Saturday morning lows are forecast to be in the lower 50s with daytime highs anticipated to be in the mid 70s. It will be a lot like today with a little bit more in rain activity expected.
Our next storm system will introduce an extended period of scattered showers, probably holding off until almost Midnight Tuesday night.
Gunmaker Remington officially files for bankruptcy
Panic sales that drove revenue for gunmakers ever higher evaporated with President Donald Trump's arrival in the White House. Remington, based in North Carolina, has been making various handguns, rifles and shotguns since 1816.
Friday will also be showery and cloudy, and we'll add a gusty wind to the forecast. Moderate to at times heavy rain is possible in the morning through midday before ending in the evening.
High pressure will bring in dry weather for Saturday and we look slightly cooler, but still near the norm for the last day of March (which goes out like a lamb). The front will pass through Friday morning, bringing an end to showers.
EASTER SUNDAY: Partly cloudy, a better chance for a shower. Monday: Risk for a shower or two, high in the upper teens.
