Historic Cold To Early Summer Temps

Good Tuesday, everyone. We are starting out another day in the 30s as our historic cold pattern begins to break down. This is about to be replaced by one that will bring an early taste of summer temps late this week into the coming weekend. It’s a pattern loaded with warmer than normal temps through the rest of May.

A few more record lows will be possible today as many areas spend the 6th straight morning below 40s degrees. Highs today are generally in the upper 50s to low 60s with a mix of sun and clouds.

As warm air pushes in on Wednesday, it is likely to spawn clouds and showers. That will keep our temps down again, with some areas staying in the 50s…

The air behind this takes off into the upper 70s to low 80s for Thursday and Friday…

The weekend will feel like summer with temps reaching the low and middle 80s, especially Sunday…

As humidity levels climb, rounds of showers and thunderstorms will join the party during this time…

This pattern is now firmly now skewed much warmer than normal through the end of May…

Temps can make a run at 90 degrees at some point during this time. The Euro is a actually showing that early next week…

Have a great day and take care.

    Twenty fifth anniversary of the Nicholasville, Kentucky Tornado outbreak: I found this on the NWS page out of Louisville.

      Thanks Chris, Looks like the Air Conditioners will be in use by later in the week. This morning though, the temperature in my backyard is a chilly 42 degrees. The NWS is forecasting rain showers now through the weekend for my area of central Kentucky. Ugh !

      The NWS posted that info a few days early. The tornadoes struck on May 18th, 1995. I picked up my car from a shop in Richmond that morning and got caught up in some serious straight line winds driving back up to Lexington. I was dumb to make that trip when I did…

      Morehead also was hit hard that morning.

    Going to put my 4 plants into the ground today.
    I think it is finally safe.

    Some more record lows were set this morning…

    Cincinnati 33 breaks the record of 34 set back in 1938.
    Lexington 35 breaks the record of 36 set back in 1938 and 1917.
    Jackson 38 breaks the record of 40 set back in 1989.

    I know I’m an oddball but I have loved
    these fall/late winter temps in spring.

    Conversely, I dread the heat and humidity.

    To each his own I guess

    Thank you for all you do CB!

    May the good Lord bless each of you in this time.

    It would be Okay, if we didn’t have the rain chances everyday through the weekend. I prefer the lower dew points with the 80 degree plus temperatures, but here in the Ohio Valley that doesn’t happen very often.

  6. William webster says:

    I hate hot weather more than anything. I’d take 60s or 70s year round, not 80s and high humidity. I guarentee another hot summer that will last till October again. Yuck

    What’s the temp for Wednesday morning? Need to know if I need to cover plants again tonight.
