Busy Pattern Keeps On Rolling

Good Saturday to one and all.  Harvey’s leftovers continue to impact our weather today, with gusty showers and very cool temps. The rains out there today shouldn’t add to the flooding woes across the western half of the state, but will continue to add some nasty to the air.

Showers slowly wind down from west to east today as the center of circulation weakens and moves to our east…

Highs will range from low 70s in the far west to the upper 50s in the east.

Sunday looks much better, but we need to be on guard for a sneaky shower in the north and east. Labor Day should be mainly dry with temps around 80.

Enjoy it because another fall cold front drops in here on Tuesday with widespread showers and storms that linger into Wednesday. Here’s the European Model…

The GFS is similar, but keeps a few showers into Thursday…

The air coming in behind this is super cool and hangs around through the rest of the week into next weekend. Look how far below normal the numbers are…

That’s impressive and could give us a few days in the 60s with lows deep into the 40s, potentially approaching record lows.

Hurricane Irma is a powerhouse in the Atlantic and you’re going to be hearing a lot of it in the coming week and change. Here’s the latest from the National Hurricane Center…

Next weekend could find a major hurricane threatening the southeastern coast of the United States…

The GFS takes this into the Mid-Atlantic as a monster…

Have a great day and take care.

    What happened to the 3-5″ deluging rainfall we were supposed to get in central ky? Only 1.7″ total in my rain gauge had more rainfall then this a few weeks ago during a 30 minute thunderstorm.

    Ricvice the center of the storm was right on top of central Ky.
    That is where the dry slot is in the storm. It’s the outer circle that gets most of the wrap around rain.

    Another couple days to get a handle on the features that’ll be steering Irma..Trough is the key..Most canes that form in that region recurve and go OTS.. 9-10 days away so a lot will change..

    Here’s the latest forecast and discussion on Hurricane Irma: http://www.nhc.noaa.gov/text/refresh/MIATCDAT1+shtml/310844.shtml

    Here’s a public advisory on Hurricane Irma: http://www.weatherstreet.com/hurricane/2017/Irma.htm With the expected strengthening of the High pressure ( The Bermuda High ) to the north of Hurricane Irma, she will likely continue to move west, southwest and not northwest toward the southeast coast. A very strong possibility of another catastrophic event. Where, and how strong Irma will become is the real danger.

    The rainfall is nearly over…but my preliminary reading from Aug. 31 through this morning is 4.46″ in Valley Station 1 mile north of Gene Snyder freeway @ Stonestreet rd

  7. Schroeder., says:

    Hurricane Irma, is now expected to become a major hurricane and is heading toward the Lesser Antilles. In the mean time, west of the Antilles, conditions are favorable for the hurricane amplification.

  8. MarkLex says:

    Had 2.16 in my rain gauge here in northwest Lexington. That met the 2 to 5 forecast. On the low end, but it still was a good forecast.
    I really hope that Irma does curve to the north and stay away from land.
