Good Friday and welcome to the end of the week. We are rolling into the weekend on a cooler note as a cold front blows across the state today. This front will knock our temps down to near normal readings for a few days and may also deliver a shot of showers and storms for some. A taste of September is looming for early next week and the tropics are looking a bit like September, as well.
Highs today will reach the low and middle 80s across much of central and eastern Kentucky with the west being warmer. The front will also fire up scattered showers and storms and it appears that the east will have the best chance of getting in on the action. Your regional radar will help you with today’s tracking…
Saturday looks like a gorgeous day across the state. Highs will be back into the low and mid 80s for central and eastern Ky with slightly warmer weather out west. Sunny skies will dominate.
Sunday will flirt with becoming hot as temps hit the upper 80s and low 90s for many. Winds should gust up ahead of our next front that swings in by Monday. That front will have the usual scattered showers and storms with it. The big news is what’s coming in behind it. Below normal temps and low humidity levels will give us several awesome weather days. A few of those days should stay in the 70s for highs and our lows will threaten to dip into the upper 40s. Wow! I can handle that.
September is usually a busy month in the tropics, so it stands to reason this September pattern has the tropics alive and well. Hurricane Chris formed in the north Atlantic Wednesday night and that’s something you seldom see in June. That bad boy was awfully far north, but with a name like Chris, it had to be a little quirky.
The Gulf of Mexico is the prime spot for our next system to crank up. Debby should be born over the weekend and may grow into a hurricane and threaten the gulf states next week. Here’s the latest from the National Hurricane Center…
Have a great Friday and take care.
