Good Monday to one and all. The weather in September is usually fairly tranquil and boring around here. Someone forgot to tell this September how things are supposed to work. We have a big rain storm working toward the state later today and this will carry us into Tuesday. That’s when a much hyped blast of chill begins to take hold of our weather.
An area of low pressure across the deep south with throw an increasing amount of moisture northward into Kentucky today. Scattered showers early will become widespread by the end of the day as some rumbles of thunder enter the picture. Rain will become heavy tonight into early Tuesday and we will have to keep a close eye on some local high water problems… especially across the east. Here’s a look at my updated rainfall thoughts…
There is going to be a very sharp cutoff on the western side of the heaviest rainfall. Sounds like something I would say in the winter, doesn’t it? Well… it should because this is a setup more typical of that time of year.
A strong cold front cross the state from west to east on Tuesday. Temps will be in the 60s ahead of the front, but will quickly fall into the 50s during the late afternoon and evening hours. That will set us up for the coldest night since April as temps drop into the upper 30s and lower 40s by Wednesday morning. Areas with clear skies will hit the high 30s. Those with some clouds will stay in the low 40s. Either way… there will be a big time chill in the air.
Highs Wednesday will stay in the low and middle 60s under partly sunny skies. Another weak front moves into the region by the end of the week and this will set us up for another big shot of chilly by the weekend. Check out the next deep trough this weekend…
Don’t forget to hit the radar tab at the top of the page to track the rain into Kentucky. That will give you access to First Alert Defender so you can track the weather all the way down to the street you live on.
Have a magnificent Monday and take care.
