Good Tuesday everyone and thanks for dropping by KWC. Summer has decided to take a prolonged vacation and it shows no signs of returning any time soon. Today will be another below normal day for much of the state and we have even cooler air taking aim on the bluegrass state by the weekend.
On a site related note, some changes are taking place and that means a page or two will be down from time to time. You will like the changes.
A weak area of low pressure is working across the Ohio Valley today and is dragging a cold front across Kentucky. Scattered showers and thunderstorms will be possible in central and eastern Kentucky and some of that may carry us into the afternoon hours. Your regional radar will help you out today…
Areas in the west will see a drying trend setting in as the day wears on. Temps will be tricky due to the clouds and scattered storm threat. Mid 80s in the west and upper 70s in the east look like a decent bet.
Wednesday and Thursday look like very nice days as our temps rise. Readings Wednesday will range from the low 80s east to 90 west. Thursday should feature highs in the 90s across the west and mid 80s east.
Our cold front arrives on Friday with showers and thunderstorms increasing. Some of these could be strong, but it is all about the timing. Temps will come down into the high 70s and lower 80s as cooler air works in.
The weekend continues to look cool and borderline chilly. Look at how far below normal the numbers from the GFS Ensembles are…
Our summer of extremes continues and there is a good shot that August ends of cooler than normal for several cities across central and eastern Kentucky.
Have a great Tuesday and take care.
