A Cold Front Moves In

Good Friday to one and all. We have a cold front on top of the state today, bringing some showers and thunderstorms to the region. A few of the storms may even be on the strong side. The air coming in behind this is nothing short of magnificent for the weekend.

Gusty winds and small hail will be the primary players with any storms that go up. In addition to the local severe threat, heavy rains may cause some high water issues.

Track away…


The cold front responsible for the storms will push in here tonight and may slow down into early Saturday. This could keep a few showers and storms in the mix across the south.

Here’s where the NAM says will see the best chance at some rainfall…

The Canadian is a little more robust with the Saturday rain chances…

Outside of any showers or storms, the air feels much, much better than in recent days. Highs will generally run in the low and middle 80s.

Temps on Sunday will be in the 80s with mostly sunny skies and gusty winds. Those winds are ahead of a weak cold front dropping in here from the northwest. That brings a broken line of showers and storms in here by Sunday night and early Monday.

The setup for the middle of next week will try to turn pretty steamy once again, but another northwest to southeast stormy setup looks to evolve across the Ohio Valley. Last week it was right on top of us. This week was barely to our north. The models for the  next few week have the next setup right on top of the region…

That certainly fits the wet pattern this summer across our region. The drought worshipers are hating this…

Don’t worry… The Agenda driven “Drought Monitor” will always show us in some kind of a drought. 😉

Have a great Friday and take care.

    Thanks Chris. The past two days have certainly been ‘summery.’ I am in and out all day so I appreciate those whose jobs require them to be out in the heat. While this has not been prolonged, it can still be dangerous! Tomorrow sounds like it will be a good day for a day trip or to work in the flower garden. We will see. Have a great Friday everyone! Stay cool!

    Thanks Chris, After reading your blog this morning and studying the models you presented, I have come to this conclusion that the cold front will weaken, and maybe die before it reaches our area. This is just my opinion. It may lower the dew point this weekend, but the humidity will still be there. I don’t expect much in the way of showers either. On the other, I remember the drought that occurred back in the late 1980’s. Being in the nursery business,it was a real chore to keep thousands of plants irrigated and cost was a major factor in keeping my nursery going. I and my nursery survived the drought which lasted from 1988-91 with minimum damage. This type of drought will occur again, but nobody knows when. Have a great day everyone.

    Everyone has their own agenda.

    I sure would like to see some of that forecast rain here in Lexington. Nothing is reaching us, it seems. Summer Dome!
    Maybe we’ll get lucky this afternoon and/or evening but the likelihood seems to be dropping.

      No such thing as a dome.

        Check out the radar loop right now. Good little cluster coming east on I-64. Some good red in there. Made it to Versailles and then – poof! Disapaited into thin air. Don’t tell there’s no dome. I just watched it.

    Chris, your agenda is to be the best meteorologist you can be.

    Soooo I’m visiting some friends in Stafford VA on vacation. Been under a heat advisory for the past two days completely miserable outside. Temperature at 1pm is 93 dew point 74 blazing sunshine not at all fun being outside.

    Ralph, Please quit the rude remarks on my comments. I’am getting sick and tired of it. If you continue,
