Good Tuesday everyone. We are enjoying a very pleasant weather day across the bluegrass state as a push of September air blows it. This nice stuff isn’t going to last very long as a massive heat wave blankets much of the state by the end of the week. That will put Kentucky squarely in the mix for 100 degree temps and record setting heat. Ugh
Today is a nice one with highs in the upper 70s and low 80s across the central and east. The west and far south will be a little warmer. Everyone gets in on a big blue sky with plenty of sunshine.
Wednesday will see temps into the low 90s across the west with upper 80s to near 90 for everyone else. The heat wave will kick into high gear on Thursday and carry us through the upcoming weekend. The heat ridge on the European Model looks NASTY…
What does all that mean? How about highs topping out around 100 degrees or better on more than one day across much of the state. WOW. This may be the hottest blast of June air since 1988 and this has an outside shot at breaking all time monthly high temps for a few spots.
Can we get a drop of rain? There is a very small threat for a shower or storm over the weekend. Do your best rain dance and let me know how that works for you.
Please enjoy the weather we have today because it’s about to get ugly in a hurry. Have a great Tuesday and take care.
