Rounds Of Rain On The Way

Good Saturday, folks. As a Friday night shower maker quickly clears the area early this morning, our Saturday is looking pretty darn nice. Unfortunately, that’s not going to last very long because rounds of rain are on the way for the next few days. Heavy rainfall is once again a good likelihood.

Let us begin with today and roll forward. Showers should be to our east before sun up, with temps dropping into the middle 30s where skies clear. Another kiss of frost is likely, giving us back to back mornings with frost.

Clouds will increase from southwest to northeast later today as temps stay in the 50s. There’s even the chance for a little residual cloud cover for much of the day for some, If that’s the case, take the under on the numbers.

What’s left of Pacific Hurricane Sergio is crossing out of Mexico and into Texas early today, with the hurricane models still picking up on the remnant low, bringing it toward us later Sunday…

That’s just amazing to see a remnant tropical low move that quickly (or at any speed) from the Pacific to Kentucky. Folks, these are strange weather times we are living in.

This system brings a surge of rain in here tonight and Sunday, with waves of heavy rain continuing through Monday…

As that system departs, it leaves behind some pretty nice fall weather for later Tuesday through Thursday. Frosty mornings are likely for both Wednesday and Thursday, but the afternoons look really good with below normal temps.

Another system works in from the southwest as we head into next weekend. That will help unleash an even colder air mass…

That cold shot could very well put an official end to the growing season.

The longer range ensembles continue to try to spit out some flakes across our region before the month is over…

We will see how that works out, but it’s interesting to see various runs from different models hinting at that possibility.

Have a great Saturday and take care.
