Good Friday everyone and welcome to the start of the weekend. Things aren’t looking the best in the world for much of today, but better weather is in store as we head into Saturday and Sunday. Another nice shot of September air is moving into the state today as a strong cold front moves through.
Showers and thunderstorms will be scattered about many areas today with the best chance in the central and east. A few strong storms can’t be ruled out in the east. The action will taper off from west to east this afternoon and that means it may be a close call for the start of the high school football season.
Temps today will generally run in the upper 70s for highs with an 80 out west. Here’s what you need to track today’s weather…
High temps this weekend should stay in the 70s for most of the bluegrass state as our lows drop into the low and mid 50s. A few upper 40s will be possible on any night that is totally clear.
I am a little more concerned about the chance for a few showers at some point this weekend. The best chance looks to be on Sunday and that’s something we will need to keep an eye on.
The cooler than normal pattern doesn’t want to go anywhere and the GFS Ensembles suggest it doesn’t. This is the temp departure map for Monday the 27th…
The month of August looks destined to be a cooler than normal month for many areas of Kentucky. I’ll take it!
Have a great Friday and take care.
