Good afternoon, everyone. As we’ve talked about for more than a week now, frosty cold temps and a light freeze are here in the bluegrass state as green thumbs are on high alert. This comes as our pattern gets set to turn pretty wet by Sunday night and Monday with a very interesting setup as we head into the closing week and change of October.
Frost Advisories and Freeze warnings are out for most of the state tonight. Temps will bottom out in the upper 20s and low 30s for much of the state, so cover up any plants you want to hold on to for a bit longer.
The rest of Saturday looks awesome with highs in the upper 50s to middle 60s with a mix of sun and clouds.
Clouds will increase Sunday as a cold front drops in from the northwest. This has some very cold air with it, but it can only get so far south before throwing on the brakes. This means showers and thunderstorms develop on top of us Sunday night into Monday and would likely hang around for a few days…
Quite the temp swing shows up from north to south across the state during this time, but everyone will see a spike into the 70s by the middle of the week.
That spike is ahead of another front working in for Friday, bringing showers and thunderstorms to the region. That ushers in much colder air behind it and sets the stage for a cold air outbreak across the central and eastern part of the country. This starts a few days after I had thought a few weeks ago… Thanks, tropics. Still, it has the potential to produce winter weather for areas that typically don’t see it this early in the season…
Very interesting, eh?
Enjoy the rest of the day and take care.
