Good Saturday everyone. We have made it to the weekend and our temps are running on the toasty side of the thermometer. We will throw in a little more moisture into the mix today and Sunday and that will lead to some scattered showers and storms going up. There is also this little storm called Isaac that tries enter our weather picture later next week.
After one of the wettest months on record, things are beginning to dry out again across central and eastern Kentucky. Isaac COULD really help us out if the storm decides to head our way. More on the updated track on Isaac in a bit.
Our short term weather features some typical August heat today and Sunday with temps in the upper 80s to around 90. As the NAM High Resolution Model shows, some Isolated storms are possible out there today:
You can track whatever is our there on the regional radar:
A cold front will then move toward the region by late Sunday into Monday and this will touch off some more showers and storms. The NAM High Resolution:
It’s just after this period the weather picture becomes a bit murky. Tropical Storm Isaac is heading toward the eastern Gulf of Mexico and will develop into a hurricane once in the gulf. The likely landfall destination will be from Mobile toward the Florida panhandle. Here’s the latest from the National Hurricane Center:
Where does it go once inland? That remains to be seen, but there are several forecast models taking the remnants of Isaac into our region by Thursday and Friday. I will continue to keep a close eye on how this plays out and have updates as needed.
Have a great Saturday and take care.
