Good Saturday and welcome to the last weekend of August. We have some good looking weather taking shape out there today and Sunday. That’s the good news part of the show. The bad news is that hot weather will make a run at us next week. While everybody else is busy hyping the heat… I’m watching for the possibility of storms to steal their thunder.
Temps today will range from the 80-85 degree range for most areas. Humidity levels will be down a bit compared to the past several days and our skies will be on the sunny side of life. A similar setup will be with us for Sunday with temps up a degree or two above what we have today.
The threat for a shower or storm will return by Monday as temps hit the mid and upper 80s. The big heat ridge across the plains will continue slowly build in from the west, but the core will stay well west of here. This will put the western part of the state in the hottest are with 90-95. Central and eastern parts of the state will be close to 90 on any given day.
The setup will also bring rounds of storms diving in from the northwest. The models are really beginning to hit this pretty hard. The GFS rainfall forecast for the next week shows where these clusters of storms may roam…
We will have to watch that setup as it can produce some big time storm clusters. Will Kentucky be in the line of fire for the main action? We will have to wait and see.
Have a great Saturday and take care.
