Awesome Weather Before Changes

Good Saturday to one and all. Our weekend is off and running on a very nice weather note, with a taste of September filling the air. This nice weather hangs around for much of the weekend, but some wet weather is on the way by late Sunday into next week.

Highs out there today are generally in the upper 70s to low 80s with a mix of sun and clouds. This comes after starting the day with temps in the upper 50s. Enjoy!

Sunday will see a mix of sun and clouds, with temps and humidity levels coming back up a bit. This increase will be ahead of a developing upper level low slowly working in from the northwest. The map I made several days ago still looks to hold up…

Rounds of showers and storms will kick in from Monday through the middle of the week…

I can’t rule out a few strong storms during this time, but the heavy rainfall will be the biggest player.

Much cooler than normal air will be noted during this time, with a few days in the 70s for highs…

Make it a great Saturday and take care.

A Nice Weekend Before Soggy Weather Returns

Good Friday, everyone. We have a cold front working across the state early today, bringing a broken band of showers and thunderstorms, and some much better weather. This nice air will be with us to start the weekend, but some ugly stuff is lurking early next week.

The early day showers and storms will slow a bit across eastern Kentucky, with the rest of the state seeing a dry afternoon with humidity levels and temps running on the pleasant side. Here are your radars to help track the line in and out of town…

Saturday continues to look awesome with temps in the upper 50s to start and upper 70s to low 80s by the afternoon. Humidity is low and skies are mostly sunny, so soak it up!

Sunday will find temps and humidity levels increasing a bit ahead of a pretty wet setup. This comes courtesy of another slow-moving upper level low. Rounds of showers and storms will become common into early next week…

Locally heavy rains and much cooler than normal temperatures are likely with that kind of setup. That’s the look as we end July and say hello to the month of August courtesy of this deep trough…

Some models are also indicating a second system bringing additional rains our way later next week into the following weekend…

This continues to be part of our cooler than normal second half of summer and the CFS shows this well. Check out the overall departures through the first week of September…

Make it a fantastic Friday and take care.

A Cold Front Moves In Tonight

Good Thursday, folks. We have a cold front working into the state later tonight, bringing some very nice weather behind it. As nice as the weather is to start the weekend, things look to take a turn toward the ugly by later Sunday into early next week. That’s when another big upper level low spins into the region.

Let’s begin with today and roll ahead. Windy and warm weather will be noted ahead of the front, with isolated showers and storms trying to pop. A broken line of showers and storms will be along and ahead of the front moving into the region this evening. Track away…

Friday starts with a broken line of showers and storms working across the east, with drier and cooler air coming in behind the departing line. Highs on Friday will be in the upper 70s and low 80s, with humidity levels coming down.

Temps by Saturday will drop into the 50s to begin the day and rebound into the upper 70s and low 80s by the afternoon. Skies will be gorgeous, so enjoy!

Sunday temps will bounce back some as late day showers and storms increase. This action kicks off an extended period of showers and storms into the first half of next week…

This comes courtesy of another upper level low which will keep out temps MUCH below normal…

Highs under that may be way, way down…

After little rebound late next week, some of the Ensembles are forecasting another deep trough…

Enjoy your Thursday and take care.
