Good Sunday everyone. Times are awfully quiet right now in the weather complaint department as conditions this weekend are nothing short of awesome. Mother nature hit the fast forward button with temps more typical of late September instead of August.
The overall pattern looks to continue for the next few weeks as Summer slowly begins to fade toward fall.
Temps today will be a little warmer with upper 70s and low 80s across much of central and eastern Kentucky. Skies will continue to run on the partly sunny side of things.
A quick moving system will move in later Monday and this will crank up showers and thunderstorms by the afternoon hours. The NAM simulated radar shows the boomers developing:
Some of that action will linger into Tuesday… especially during the morning. Temps Monday will be in the 80s before dropping into the upper 70s and low 80s Tuesday.
Things calm down for the middle of next week with seasonal temps likely to return. Another major dip in the jet stream is likely by the end of next week into next weekend. That means showers and storms will be likely ahead of this change on Friday. That should then usher in another big shot of cool air.
The GFS Ensembles show how far below normal the numbers may be:
