A Toasty Weekend Before A Rain Threat

Good Saturday, folks. It’s another warm weekend here in the bluegrass state and we have plenty more warmth to go through before we can get to true fall. That may not happen until we are deep into October. Between now and then, it’s more of the same with a few exceptions. One of those comes Sunday night and Monday in the form of a cold front.

I will get to that front in a bit, but let’s start with the weather out there today. Highs are deep into the 80s and should manage 90 for some with a mix of sun and clouds. Blah, blah, blah.

Sunday looks like a very windy and warm day as clouds increase in the afternoon and evening. Those clouds are ahead of our cold front that will have a line of showers and thunderstorms with it. This looks like the first of two systems set to impact our region next week. The second arrives around Thursday. Watch how the models handle these systems…

Canadian

That run of the Canadian actually shows three systems bringing, at least, some rain into the state. Temps look much better during this time, but those numbers won’t stay near normal for long. A heat wave is likely to develop for the last few days of September into early October. As we bake, the west turns very cold…

That pattern can produce record highs around our part of the world.

Earlier this week, I broke down some of the prior years that match up well with this hot and mainly dry fall pattern. Out of all those, 1939 looks to take control with the early October heat.

Make it a great day and take care.
