Good Thursday to all my fellow weather lovers. June is off to its coolest start since 2003 and I don’t think too many people are complaining about it. Readings over the past several days have been nothing short of fantastic and we have another winner of a day on tap today. A warmer change is looming as we roll into the weekend.
Today’s temps will hit the upper 70s across central and eastern Kentucky. The pleasant temps will bring mostly sunny skies with them to continue our streak of awesomeness.
Thermometers will hit the low 80s for the first time this month on Friday. That’s exactly where we should be in early June. Sunny skies will cap off a fantastic weather week. Normal doesn’t last very long around here and our temps by the weekend will heat up.
Readings in the upper 80s will be common over the weekend into early next week. The flow will become more favorable for some scattered showers and thunderstorms from late Sunday into Monday. Much of next week will feature the chance for some boomers and there are plenty of gardens looking for some water, right now.
The GFS Ensembles suggests the warm spell won’t last very long:
I am eyeing a second half of June that may turn very toasty across much of our region. Moral of the story… soak up the nice weather of this week.
Here’s to a terrific Thursday. Take care.
