Good Wednesday everyone. We’ve made it to the middle of the week and this is likely to be our last day of below normal temps for a bit. Today marks thirteen days in a row with readings cooler than normal for Lexington. The air will finally start to feel more like it should for this time of year for the rest of the week into the weekend.
Our day will start with locally dense fog before sunny skies take over. A few afternoon clouds will develop, but the day should be a dry one. Highs will hit the low and middle 80s across the entire region.
It’s at this point the warm air begins to take over. Look at the high temps from the GFS…
That is NOTHING like what we had earlier this summer, but should feel pretty toasty considering where we’ve been recently. This warmer pattern may also bring about a stray storm or two during the period.
That warm weather carries us through the weekend into early next week. This is when all eyes will turn toward Isaac and the possible impact on the southeast coast or the Gulf. Here’s the latest information and track forecast from the National Hurricane Center:
If Isaac can make it into the Gulf of Mexico, it would have a chance to bring us some much needed rains. That is certainly a possibility and something we will keep an eye on over the next several days.
Have a fantastic Wednesday and take care.
