It’s Active For August

Good Wednesday, folks. The first in a series of cold fronts is pressing across the region today, bringing a few storms and cooler air with it. We have two more fronts on the tarmac and waiting for the runway to clear so they can glide on into the bluegrass state.

Today starts with scattered showers and storms, but ends on a better note as dry air takes control from west to east. Temps will generally be in the low 80s with a mix of sun and clouds this afternoon.

The next front will then drop in here from the northwest late Thursday into Friday. This front look continues to look fairy active, but still isn’t washout material. Storms will fire up by Thursday evening and continue into Friday and there’s the chance for a few strong or severe storms.

Here’s the Thursday Severe Weather Outlook from the Storm Prediction Center…

Here’s the Friday risk area…

Once that gets out of the way, the weather for Saturday into the first part of Sunday looks really good as our front slows down to our south. That boundary may try to inch back to the north by late Sunday and Monday, touching off a few northwest to southeast moving thunderstorm clusters. This will be ahead of the next front set to arrive a few days later…

That will knock the temps back down for the middle and end of the week. Looking at the overall pattern, I highly doubt we make it through August without one more heat surge.

Let’s get back to the weather of the day. Here are your middle of the week tracking tools…

Have a great day and take care.
