Good Wednesday everyone and thanks so much for checking in on the blog. We have been living a charmed weather life over the past week with fall-like temps. We will see those temps bounce up a few degrees over the next couple of days before another big cool shot arrives.
The first half of the month is just about in the books and it’s been a cooler than normal start to August. Lexington is nearly a degree below normal, so far, and we will likely see that number dive big time over the next week. This gives us the very real possibility that this month winds up colder than normal. That would be pretty impressive after July gave us our 4th hottest month ever.
Temps today will be a little closer to normal with readings in the low and middle 80s. A touch of fog will be with us early today as the kiddos head back to school. I still can’t rule out a stray shower or thunderstorm popping up this afternoon. Here’s your back to school weather trackers:
Thursday will be the warmest day of the next week with highs in the mid and upper 80s as southwesterly winds begin to gust up. Some clouds will arrive by the afternoon and scattered showers and storms won’t be too far behind. The scattered storms of Thursday night will become widespread into Friday as a strong cold front works in.
This front will usher in a prolonged stretch of well below normal temps that should carry us into the first half of next week. The European Model has the cool look to it:
Highs in the 70s and lows in the 50s should be common from Friday through the weekend and into early next week. For those of us who love fall… life is good.
Have a great Wednesday and take care.
