Good Sunday evening. Frost was fairly common across the bluegrass state this morning as temps dropped into the low and mid 30s in several areas. Lexington tied a record low with 36 degrees and a few other cities were very close to records. Many of those cities will set new record lows Monday morning as frost becomes widespread.
The NWS is playing catch up on the depth of the cold and have finally put out a Frost Advisory for parts of the state. They have elected to get cute with the advisory instead of blanketing the entire state with an advisory as is needed. Again guys… THIS IS THE MONTH OF SEPTEMBER and the growing season is still going strong. I’m going to refrain from going off on another rant. I have to pace myself so early in the cold weather season. 🙂
Let’s put the cold in perspective. Monday morning temps are likely to be the coldest readings EVER recorded this early in the season in many cities. Yep… another extreme and historic event here in Kentucky.Don’t be surprised if some spots dip BELOW freezing!
As our wild weather rolls on… we will go from frost to thunderstorms this week. I will talk more about that and an interesting looking pattern for early October with my late night update.
Enjoy the rest of the evening and take care.
