Good Tuesday everyone and thanks for making us your online stop for Kentucky weather. Things are pretty quiet out there today, but I am already focusing on the end of the week into the coming weekend. That’s when a big weather change is going to roll our way and this will provide us with a taste of early fall.
Our short term forecast will feature similar conditions to what we had on Monday. The south and southeast will see a few showers and storms going up as the north enjoys sunshine. Thermometer readings will be in the upper 80s across the north and low 80s for those with some clouds.
Wednesday looks to feature partly sunny skies with temps upper 80s to around 90 with an isolated storm threat.
The changes begin to show up by Thursday as a storm system dives in from the northwest. This will spawn showers and thunderstorms that carry us into Friday. Winds will gust up as the storm system ramps up across the Ohio Valley. The European Model has a good handle on this:
It is being pushed by a huge area of Canadian high pressure that will bring us some September air for a few days. The GFS Ensembles show just how expansive the below normal temps may be:
That is likely to give us a few days of temps in the upper 70s and low 80s for highs with lows in the 50s. Now THAT is what I’m talking about!
Have a terrific Tuesday and take care.
