Looking For Rain Chances

Good Friday, folks. The number of dry weather days continues to add up for the bluegrass state, but there are signs of a subtle pattern shift in the coming days. It’s a small shift, but it’s one that will bring the best threat of rain many of us have seen in a month or so. A bonus of this shift will also be temps coming down some, but still averaging above normal.

Our Friday will find temps from the upper 70s to low 80s across the central and east with middle 80s west. A mix of sun and clouds will be noted and, just like the past few days, a spotty shower or storm may go up. Most of the state is dry, but your regional radar MAY pick up on a blip or two…

Our weekend looks VERY warm and rather windy, so abide by local burning restrictions. A cold front will then work in here Sunday night and Monday, bringing the potential for showers and storms. Here’s how the NAM sees it arriving Sunday night…

Here’s the Canadian through Monday night…

This isn’t likely to be a full blown soaking rain, but we will take whatever we can get at this point. Temps will be very pleasant and near normal behind this front.

The pattern continues to look a little active behind this boundary and could throw one or two more rain chances at us later next week…

After we get through whatever comes at us next week, the setup for the final few days of September into the first week of October looks super toasty. Folks, this is a very warm pattern that will continue through the middle of October. The setup is there for a bad forest fire season in our neck of the woods.

I’ll talk more about the rain threats and will look at more fall and winter stuff this weekend, so check back. Make it a fantastic Friday and take care.
