Irma Gives Way To A Big Warm Up

Good Thursday to one and all. The remnants of Irma will continue to impact the bluegrass state today, but a surge of summer air is about to take center stage. We are heading into an extended run of temps deep into the 80s over the next week or so.

Let’s start with today and roll forward. Gusty showers and isolated storms will be noted, especially across central and eastern parts of the state. This won’t be as widespread as what we had on Wednesday…

Friday’s weather slowly improves with temps climbing back into the 70s for the entire state.

From there, it’s game on for the 80s to return. Highs this weekend will be from 80-85 in many areas as we keep a mix of sun and clouds. Those numbers are above normal…

While things look dry, I can’t rule out isolated afternoon and evening storms going up. The GFS is spitting out some rainfall this weekend…

This warm setup carries us into next week. This is also a time we will watch the east coast to see just how close Jose can get. The new European has the northeast with a super close call…

Make it a great Thursday and take care.

    Forecast and discussion on Hurricane Jose: The Atlantic, still looks very active, even though we have past the peek in tropical storm development.

    Winter predictions?

    I stumbled across this site a few days ago. It was on a linked to from a British newspaper’s web site. It is a really, really neat visualization of various weather paterns and models. Check it out – you won’t be sorry!;-76.8;3&l=temperature-850hpa&t=20170912/21

      MIKE! – So weird that you posted this. I was watching a YOUTUBE vid of someone using this site….I saw ventusky and looked it up. It’s really cool. This was just last week. I immediately bookmarked it.

    Backloaded summer! 😉

    Tropical storm Jose is forecast to strengthen over the next few days. Then Hurricane Jose will interact with a trough in the Mississippi valley, sometime late Friday. The southeast coast, looks to be in it’s path. Quite a change from yesterdays forecast. All could change, lets hope so.

    • Prelude says:

      Schroeder your findings are wrong about Jose. Jose suppose to possibly skirt the mid-Atlantic states, Jose is forecast to stay out to sea no landfall is expected at all to the SE coast. If any landfall would occur looks to be mid-Atlantic and points north and that’s highly unlikely.

  8. Schroeder., says:

    Hope your right, as this country cannot afford another disaster, but at this time I don’t have a good feeling about this storm.

  9. Mike S says:

    The Euro model has shifted Jose a bit more westward and NHC does too, but impacts look to be just wave-related along the east coast. However, from the Outer Banks of NC to Cape Cod, I’m sure residents will be chewing a few finger nails if a westward trend continues.

    • David in Gtown says:

      Seems like the hurricane trends go more toward the left on the cone 5 days out. Getting a bit concerning from the outer banks and north.

  10. Schroeder., says:

    All models are not in agreement on tropical storm Jose. This is a real problem with forecasting the track. I felt this way with Hurricane Harvey and Hurricane Irma, and unfortunately I was right on with Harvey and Irma. I read the Goes east, and the global earth winds. With not much training in meteorology, I still don’t know how I can read these, and come up with such accurate conclusions. Here’s the latest on Tropical storm Jose:

    Ralph, I reported your rude conduct to Chris Bailey this afternoon. Either you or me will be blocked. I told Chris, it’s his choice.

    I have never seen such immature grown men on a weather blog in my life…my god…Chris should ban all of y’all that has this high school girl drama going on…give it a rest

  13. Chris Mercer says:

    There are two more disturbances behind Jose that the Hurricane Center forecasts to develop in the next five days. Both are forecast to move towards the U.S.

  14. Cold Rain says:

    Well you never know…18z GEFS mean shifted 100 miles west at hour 138..NC-VA border maybe a close call..
