Scattered Storms and Steamy Temps Keep Rolling

Good Thursday, folks. It’s another day with scattered showers and thunderstorms blowing up across the bluegrass state. This is a trend likely to carry us through the big Labor Day Weekend that is just about upon us. This scattered action will also come with more in the way of VERY steamy temps. Moral of the story: It’s more of what we have seen for much of the summer.

Our cold front is slowly working across the state today, firing up scattered showers and thunderstorms along and ahead of it. The best threat for some boomers is across the south and east, where some storms can put down very heavy rains…

As I mentioned, a scattering of showers and storms take us through your unofficial end of summer that is your Labor Day Weekend. This action will be more prominent during the afternoon and evening hours…

There is no reason to cancel any outdoor activities, but have a backup plan just to be on the safe side. Temps over the weekend are well into the 80s for highs, with the high humidity making it feel toastier than that.

Temps next week may wind up similar to what we’ve had this week. It’s going to be a super tropical feel during this time, as we watch the Gulf of Mexico to see if a tropical system can develop. The GFS is catching on to something and taking it toward Texas…

That’s an interesting look and track, keeping us in the heat and humidity with scattered storms around.

There’s a little bit of 2002 in this pattern as we roll into September.

Have a good one and take care.
