It’s Another Busy Weather Week

Good Monday and Happy Labor Day. Today marks the unofficial end to summer for most folks, but it’s safe to say summer ended long ago. The pattern has been in hyperactive mode and the week ahead looks to feature more of the same. I’m tracking another big fall cold front, and the potential for a powerful hurricane to impact the east coast.

Our Labor Day will feature party sunny skies with temps in the upper 70s to low 80s. Winds will be very gusty and there is a small chance for a shower or storm to go up…

Our cold front arrives Tuesday with gusty showers and thunderstorms along and ahead of it. Lingering showers may carry through the rest of the week as one huge trough dives in here…

Temps coming in behind this are about 6 weeks ahead of schedule. Check out these anomalies…

Pot of Chili, anyone? 🙂

At the same time, powerful Hurricane Irma is barreling toward the southeast coast of the United States. Here’s the latest from the National Hurricane Center…

The latest model forecasts for Irma are frightening. Here’s the latest GFS…

This was a southward shift when compared to the prior run of the same model…

It’s interesting to note, both tracks have basically the same outcome for Kentucky, with Irma coming our way.

The Canadian model does too…

If the model consensus is right, Irma could impact our weather into early next week. This is not the most common of tracks to bring rain into Kentucky, but it has happened before.

There will still be a lot of shifts in the track of this storm in the coming days.

Have a great Labor Day and take care.
