Cold Fronts Highlight The Week

Good Monday, everyone. It’s the first full week of August and things are starting out in pretty normal fashion, but that is about to change as a series of cold front settle in. These fronts will increase the rain chances and decrease the temperatures, with some shots of the good stuff blowing in.

Showers and storms drenched parts of southern and western Kentucky over the weekend, but today shouldn’t find as much action. Still, isolated showers and storms will be noted in some spots with temps ranging from 85-90 for many. Humidity levels continue to run on the “not bad” side.

Our first cold front rolls in here late Tuesday into Wednesday, bringing an increase in showers and thunderstorms…

Temps come down with this front then come down a little more with the next front arriving by Friday…

Temps will feel pretty good with that, but bounce back up a few days later. That’s ahead of another cold front by the middle of next week…

This setup is courtesy of those deep troughs digging┬áinto the eastern half of the country. These troughs will bring some VERY pleasant temps with them, taking the numbers below normal for this time of year. All of this is happening just in time for the start of the school year. Speaking of… How many of you teachers are already wondering when the first snow day will be? ­čÖé

I leave you with your isolated shower and storm tracking toys…

Have a great Monday and take care.
