June Starts Cool

Good Friday everyone and welcome to the month of June. Things are getting off to a very cool start across the bluegrass state as an early spring storm system works across the Ohio Valley. Could this cool air be a sign of things to come over the next week? More on that in a bit.

Today is the first day of meteorological summer (June-August) and temps will feel more like the first day of spring… just not the spring that just wrapped up. Spring of 2012 (March-May) was the warmest on record for the city of Lexington.

Temps today will generally run in the upper 50s and low 60s for many areas during the heart of the afternoon. Some sunshine may boost temps into the middle 60s for a time. Early day showers and thunderstorms will be common across central and eastern Kentucky. You can track it all here:

Current Temps

Our weekend weather will continue to feature cooler than normal temperatures will the threat for a scattered shower or storm on Saturday. The cool look to the pattern is forecast to continue into next week. Check out the European Model:

That’s a deep trough across the northeast with a heat ridge trying to build across the plains. This may lead to some rounds of storms around here to go along with normal to below normal temps.

Yep… Spring was more like summer and now summer looks more like fall. Does that mean snow on Labor Day? I kid, I kid… I think, anyway. 🙂

Have a fantastic Friday and take care.
