Good Friday to one and all. We’ve mad it to the start of the weekend and it looks like mother nature is going to throw us one very nice day and one not so nice day. After the run we’ve had… who cares. This has been flat out awesome.
Today features a partly sunny sky with highs in the middle 70s for many areas. I will be watching southeastern Kentucky for the chance for isolated late day and evening showers going up. It’s a small chance, but a chance nonetheless.
Saturday looks even milder with highs in the upper 70s to around 80 degrees. Winds will gust up a bit as clouds roll in during the afternoon and evening. Those clouds are ahead of a cold front that pushes in on Sunday with scattered showers and a few thunderstorms. This is NOT going to be a washout of a day!
Cooler winds will below behind this front with temps heading back into the below normal range early next week…
Just how cool things can get remains to be seen, but a few days in the 60s for highs will be a good bet into the first half of the week.
As you know, I’ve been watching the Gulf of Mexico for the past week or so and talking about the need to keep watching it into late September and early October. The models have been throwing us a lot of head fakes in developing a tropical system down there. The GFS is doing it again…
Why have I been watching this region so closely? Because 1979 is one of the better matches for the pattern we’ve been in for the past few months and it produced a storm that impacted our weather…
I’m am NOT saying something like that is going to happen… it’s just one of those interesting things I like to watch for. 1979 was also a very slow Atlantic hurricane season similar to the one we have going on now.
That said… 1979 is slipping a little bit on my analog list as a few other years are trying to jump over it.
Have a great day and take care.
