Good Thursday to one and all. We have a warm day in progress across the bluegrass state, but this is NOT a sign of things to come. Another big push of September air blows into town later Friday and hangs tough into the weekend and early next week. The change to cool will be announced by some booming showers and thunderstorms.
High temps today will soar into the middle and upper 80s for most of the area as a few clouds push in by the afternoon hours. Scattered showers and storms will develop across western Kentucky and southern Indiana and a few of these will sneak in here by late this evening.
Your regional radar will be lighting up with the action to our west:
Showers and storms will become widespread on Friday as our cold front slips through here. A few of the storms may be strong and produce locally heavy rains. That’s something to keep an eye on. It will be a close call in getting these storms out of here by the time we kickoff the high school football season.
Much cooler air filters in behind the front. Temps will generally run in the 70s for highs from Friday into early next week with lows hitting the 50s. The GFS Ensembles show just how far below normal our temps should be:
That pleasant temp run should be accompanied by partly sunny skies. Yep… I like the weather run we are having.
Enjoy your Thursday and take care.
