Normal For The Weekend

Good Friday, folks. It’s the final weekend of July and it’s kicking off with temperatures getting closer to normal. That trend will take us through the weekend, but changes are already showing up that will try to knock the numbers back down next week.

Let’s begin with today, the 4th straight day to start with temps in the 50s across, at least, some of Kentucky. This is much more anomalous than the heat and humidity we had a week ago, but it won’t get the attention because it doesn’t fit the narrative of some in the local weather world. If it ain’t heat or drought, it just don’t count. I think I may coin the phrase. 🙂 Don’t worry, I’m not going off on a rant… It’s Friday and I have a strict no rant policy on a Friday. 😉

Highs today are in the low to middle 80s with a slight uptick in the humidity. Those numbers climb into the weekend as a slight chance for a shower or storm gets into the mix.

There’s a much better chance for showers and storms early next week as a slow-moving system works in here. That will be accompanied by another round of cooler than normal through the start of August. Here’s the GFS…

After a bit of a rebound, the model sees another shot of cool behind that…

The GFS Ensembles have been all over this of late and continue to trend in the same direction. Here’s the average temperature departure for the first 10 days of August…

Have a fantastic Friday and take care.
