Summer Sizzle and A Few Storms

Good Tuesday, everyone. Summer temps are back in the bluegrass state and we are sweating out the numbers here in the middle of September. These steamy temps will bring an increasing threat for a few thunderstorms in the coming days. That’s especially true later in the week as a cold front approaches from the west.

Let’s start with today and roll forward. Temperatures are generally in the upper 80s and low 90s for many areas with more humidity in the mix. A few showers and storms will also pop during the afternoon and evening hours, but this isn’t going to be terribly widespread. Here are your tracking tools…

The threat for showers and storms will then increase on Wednesday as temps stay very steamy with a similar setup for Thursday.

The setup for later this week continues to feature a cold front dropping in from the northwest with some kind of tropical system off the southeast coast. That doesn’t mean this is going to become a full blown depression or named storm, but it has a chance as it crosses Florida and into the Gulf…

That front will produce showers and storms as it moves into the state. This tropical system is one of several being monitored by the National Hurricane Center…

If this system gets in the Gulf, there’s a good chance it brings rain into our region early next week. Here’s the GFS…

Some of the other models are showing a much more organized system…

There could very well be another tropical system following that up late next week. That one could make a run at the southeast. Looking at the overall pattern, the setup is primed to try and deliver a major trough into the eastern part of the country not too long after.

Wouldn’t it be something if we go from 90s this week to an early season frost threat a few weeks from now?

Have a great day and take care.
