Here Comes The Fall Cold Front

Good Friday to one and all. We have a strong fall cold front blowing across the bluegrass state, kicking off a line of showers and storms. This will usher in another shot of way below normal temperatures for the next few days, with more cool slated for much of the net few weeks. Plenty of rain is also likely to fall during this time.

Today’s line of storms could be strong or locally severe, but this doesn’t look like a big event. The best chance for some strong storms will be across the eastern half of the state, with high winds the main threat.

The showers and storms will quickly end from west to east later this afternoon into the evening. Winds are going to be very gusty as temps tank. Highs will be in the 70s but some upper 50s may show up in the north by late this evening. Wow!

Saturday morning lows range from 50-55 with some pockets of upper 40s possible. Highs are mainly in the 70s with a mix of sun and clouds.

If you’re making outdoor plans on Sunday, try to do them earlier in the day. Clouds will quickly increase with showers and storms streaming in from the southwest during the afternoon and evening. This action will take us into early next week and can be heavy at times…

Temps remain below normal with another big shot of rain on the way for the second half of next week…

That’s being pushed by another huge dip in the jet stream…

Guess what that does to our temps? Yep… We stay well below normal, giving us one heck of a negative temperature departure for the first half of August.

Make it a great Friday and take care.
