A Blast Of Fall Temps Ahead

Good Sunday, folks. We have a very exciting week ahead of us with a once in a lifetime eclipse, the threat for strong thunderstorms, and a big blast of fall air to follow. So settle in and buckle up for the ride ahead of us. 🙂

Let’s start with Eclipse Day. Odds continue to favor a fair to good view of the solar eclipse across Kentucky. Still, I’m concerned about some clouds getting in the way at times, and I can’t rule out a popcorn shower or storm. Here is the Hi Res NAM…



A major dip in the jet stream then takes place Tuesday into Wednesday, sending a potent cold front into the state. Strong storms are possible during this time as the front slams in from the northwest…

Temps on Wednesday are in the upper 70s for highs as we head into a very cool period. Highs may stay in the 70s for several days in a row. Check out the GFS Ensembles average temperature anomaly in Celsius for a 5 day span…

The tropics are likely to have a say in the overall pattern beyond that time frame, but the pattern continues to be skewed cooler than normal. The CFS continues to lead the way. Check out the 5 day average around Labor Day weekend…

Here’s another 5 day average toward the middle of September…

Make it a great day and take care.

    Twice in a lifetime- because there is another one in 7 years giving us about the same coverage. This one is 95% for Lexington and the one in 2024 is 96% coverage.

    You have to be in the path of complete totality to really study the solar eclipse. Scientist, will study and record any solar flares that may occur during this event, and also sun spot activity. Many, scientist believe that after the year 2020, the sun will enter into a Maunder minimum and plunge the earth into the beginning of a second Ice Age. Here’s a link for future paths for the 21st century. I notice that Lexington, Kentucky is not in the path of complete totality for the rest of this century. http://www.postregister.com/articles/solar-eclipse-featured-news-daily-email/2017/08/19/future-eclipses-21st-century

    That strong cold front predicted to past through the state beginning late Tuesday and Wednesday, will only lower temperatures in the eastern part of the state. Central and western Kentucky will still have highs in the 80’s, but hopefully lower dew points. http://www.weatherstreet.com/states/kentucky-max-temperature-forecast.htm

    • Prelude says:

      Nope that’s completely incorrect

      • Prelude says:

        Normal high temperatures for central and western Kentucky are around 88-89 degrees for this time of year. Temps will struggle to hit 80. Normal low temperatures is 66 degrees, temperatures forecast to drop into the 50’s for lows.

    Here’s the three day severe weather outlook: http://www.weatherstreet.com/severe-weather-forecast.htm

  5. Schroeder., says:

    I’am correct, you need to explain further. I don’t think you understood my post Prelude. I wasn’t discussing average highs and lows, but what this cold front is going to bring. Here’s the average Highs and Lows :


    • Prelude says:

      I did explain that in the above post. What normal temperatures are and what the expected temperatures are expected to be.

    • Andy Rose says:

      According to the map you posted Schroeder, the temps will not be in the upper 80’s. You made one statement then showed proof of the opposite being true. Day 4-7 temps no higher than for anybody in western KY according to your link.

  6. Schroeder., says:

    Here’s the jet stream winds showing high pressure to our east in the Atlantic, and to our south. In my opinion, I don’t see any kind of cold front going too far south, but we will find out next week. http://www.weatherstreet.com/states/gfsx-300-forecast.htm

    So, I made a mistake. Please let this go. Peace
