Good Tuesday everyone. We have managed to string together four days in a row of below normal temperatures here in Lexington. That hasn’t happened since the first week of June! It looks as if today will make it five in a row as our temps struggle to get to 80 degrees in many areas. The price to be paid? Scattered showers and thunderstorms.
The storms today will likely be few and far between and be a bit more pronounced in the north and east. Your daily dose of tracking toys will help you track the storms and temps:
Wednesday will feature temps warming just a bit with 80-85 degrees a good bet under partly sunny skies. This should be another slightly below normal day. Thursday should produce the highest temps for a while with mid and upper 80s a good bet.
Clouds will slowly thicken up and a scattered storm will be possible by Thursday night ahead of a strong cold front. The storm threat will really increase on Friday and this may impact the kickoff of the high school football season.
The big push of cool air will then follow for the weekend into early next week. The European Model shows what I’m talking about:
Those maps mean highs in the 70s and lows in the low and mid 50s with an outside shot at some upper 40s. I’m loving the pattern as we get set to close out Summer and say hello to Fall.
Have a great Tuesday and take care.
