Gusty Showers Continue

Good Wednesday to one and all. We continue to deal with the remnants of Irma as showers and gusty winds continue across the region. This system slowly moves away by Friday, leaving us with improving skies and warmer temps.

Today is flat out ugly with periods of showers and rumbles of thunder working through the state. Locally heavy rains will be possible, and winds will continue to gust up…


Temps may struggle to get too far away from 60 degrees for much of the day.

Leftover showers and a rumble of thunder will be possible on Thursday, especially across the east. Highs will hit the upper 60s to low 70s.

Friday’s weather looks good with highs general in the 70s.

Much warmer air then moves in for the weekend. Daytime highs should finally be able to crack the 80 degree mark, kicking off a warmer overall look to the pattern. We have an extended streak of highs in the 80s on the way.

Each of the past several months were skewed cool, but featured a week to 10 day stretch of above normal temps. September looks to be no different.

We are still going to watch Jose to see if this thing can make a run at the east coast. The GFS is back to showing this threat…

The Canadian puts a scare in the northeast…

Enjoy your wet Wednesday and take care.

    Looks like at the present, there is an upper level low pressure system over central Kentucky. If this was February or March, this event would produce heavy wet snows, as there is allot of cold air aloft. We will have to wait on what this winter will bring. Meteorologist, will have to determine several factors, like what phase the North Atlantic oscillation is in, and the Arctic oscillation. The westerlies across Canada are they weak or strong, and lastly ENSO, will we have a weak El nino, a ENSO neutral or a La nina present latter this winter. At the present we are in an ENSO neutral phase. If this continues, we could have a repeat of last winter’s pattern. It is a confusing and difficult call at this time.

    Since, we are in meteorological Autumn now, NOAA has release their 90 day long range outlook. I normally take long range outlooks with a grain of salt, but I must agree on the temperatures, but we will have to see on precipitation, as October is our driest month. For most of Kentucky they are calling for equal chances on precipitation, next 90 days. http://www.cpc.ncep.noaa.gov/products/predictions/long_range/seasonal.php?lead=1

    So, I stumbled over a article about if mets like the newer GFS weather model. Pretty much across the board the new GFS model most mets not impressed with at all. Not sure if CB feels the same?

    Good news, Hurricane Jose is undergoing wind shear from upper level winds to the northwest. He still has a lot of convective energy, and is expected to loop around to the north. At this time, Hurricane Jose is expected to move toward the east coast ( no land fall ) and then out to sea. Bad news, looks like a new tropical storm will develop off the coast of Africa, and conditions in that area of the Atlantic look favorable for storm development. We will know in a few days.
