Good Sunday everyone. Our weather has taken a turn for the hotter and your friendly weather dude is not a fan. I had my full share of the heat earlier this summer and am ready for fall. That said… the summer beat rolls on for one more day before a cold front knocks our temps back down.
The weather for the week ahead is going to be focused around what happens with the leftovers of soon to be Hurricane Isaac. This storm is going to really intensify over the next few days as it cruises through the Florida Keys and heads toward the central Gulf Coast.
Let’s talk about today and work our way toward Isaac.
Temps in the upper 80s and low 90s will be common today as skies stay partly sunny. Some isolated storms will go up once again and you can track those on regional radar:
A cold front will move in on Monday with a gradual increase in showers and thunderstorms. You can see that here on the NAM:
A few showers and storms will try to hang around into Tuesday.
Soon to become Hurricane Isaac is heading into the Gulf of Mexico. Conditions are favorable for this storm to intensify over the next few days. The likely landfall destination appears to be along the central Gulf Coast from New Orleans toward the Florida Panhandle. Here’s the latest from the National Hurricane Center:
Time will tell on exactly where this storm goes. Odds do favor Isaac bringing Kentucky some much needed rains by the end of the week. That isn’t anywhere close to being a certainty, but there is a decent chance as of right now.
I will update as needed. Have a great Sunday and take care.
