The Ups and Downs Of The Pattern Ahead

Good Wednesday to one and all. We have a cold front dropping from north to south across the state, bringing a better brand of air and a few storms. This continues our pattern evolution toward a cooler look to the second half of summer.

Humidity levels drop from the north today with highs mainly in the low and middle 80s, with higher numbers in the west. The slow movement of the front means scattered showers and storms may linger, especially across the southern half of the state…

Thursday looks like a very nice day with highs in the 80s and low humidity levels. That changes on Friday as highs reach the upper 80s to around 90 for many, with low 90s west. Humidity is also on the increase. That may fire up isolated storms here or there.

Saturday looks steamy with highs in the low 90s for many across the state, but with isolated  boomers blossoming. The threat for showers and thunderstorms will really increase late Sunday into early next week ahead of a big push of cooler air…

The air behind this front will knock the numbers way down for much of the country. It’s not just the operational models showing this, the Ensembles continue to be locked in. Here are the European Ensembles 5 day average…

The evolution of this pattern continues to be one toward a cooler than normal second half of summer for much of the region.

Have a great day and take care.

    Why did the storms not form along the front last night ? No rain at all in Northeast Ky.

      Hurricane Chris is pulling down drier air from the north into the Ohio Valley. This may be the reason you didn’t have showers and storms.

    Thanks Chris for the update. Just checked the water vapor loop and Hurricane Chris now has a well defined eye. Movement of Hurricane Chris is projected to be northeast well away from the eastern seaboard. The weather model ensembles are locked in for drier cooler rest of the summer ? We will have to wait and see if that pans out and I hope it does. Have a great day everyone.
