June Keeps Bringing The Good Stuff

Good Wednesday to one and all. We have another pleasant air mass taking shape across parts of the state today, but it’s full steam ahead toward some warmer temps by the end of the week and a few storms for the weekend. Those storms are ahead of another cold front dropping in from the north.

Today’s weather starts with a some clouds and a stray shower or storm in the east. That’s along a boundary bringing more in the way of nice air for this afternoon. Highs are back in the 70s with gusty winds and skies becoming partly sunny.

Another cool night is ahead of us with readings heading into the low 50s for many in central and eastern Kentucky. A few spots may drop into the upper 40s…

Temps by Thursday afternoon should recover quickly. Temps will be back into the 80s for central and eastern Kentucky, with 90 in the west.

Friday may find many thermometers flirting with 90 degrees. That’s ahead of a system diving in from the northwest for the weekend. Showers and thunderstorms will increase during this time.

The models are trending toward a bigger dip in the jet stream later next week. Watch how the European Model is going toward a deepening trough…

That’s more of a look we had back in March and April and may be one trying to become established for much of June. Check out the European Model Ensembles as we start calendar summer later this month…

The GFS Ensembles are also going toward a deepening trough…

The 2014 and 2004 analogs show up with that look.

Make it a good one and take care.

    Thanks Chris for the update. Enjoying the bright sunshine and the cool nights. This weather pattern is more like what would occur in the Northeast. Usually, the backdoor cold fronts are well to our east and the Ohio River Valley is in a stagnant high pressure system built in the upper levels. I’m sure we will eventually return to our familiar Ohio River Valley summer pattern sooner or later. Enjoy the great weather while we have it and everyone have a great day.

    Nationally, hottest May ever. Based on percentages 83.49% was ‘very warm’. I am confident the report will show a blow out number over the second hottest May.
