Good Wednesday everyone. I am proud to welcome the most powerful doppler radar in Kentucky to KWC. First Alert Defender is available on our radar page at the top of the blog. Kentucky Weather Center and WKYT are now officially partners, so you will be noticing some awesome changes going forward. You knew it was only a matter of time before I hooked these two up.
Let’s talk a little bit about the actual weather.
Temps today will warm a few degrees compared to the past week. Central and eastern Kentucky will see readings topping out in the low and middle 80s with warmer readings in the west.
I still can’t rule out a stray shower or thunderstorm across the east as some moisture hangs tough.
Thursday looks like the warmest day of the past week and the warmest day over the next week. Temps will hit the mid and high 80s for many with some low 90s west. Clouds will increase during the afternoon ahead of our strong cold front arriving on Friday. Scattered storms develop later Thursday and will become widespread on Friday. Some strong storms and heavy rains will be possible.
Some of these storms may impact the kickoff to the high school football season Friday evening.
Highs Friday will generally run in the 70s and that’s a trend that carries us through the weekend and into early next week. Lows in the 50s will be common during this time. Our northwesterly flow will need to be watched for a stray shower or two at some point.
The overall pattern for the next 10 days should see temps below normal. Blocking near Greenland means a deep trough hanging tough in the eastern part of the country…
I can live with that.
Have a wonderful Wednesday and take care.
