Good Sunday everyone and thanks for checking in on the blog. While our weekend weather has been very nice, some ugly stuff is on the way for the next few days. We have a setup that looks a lot like one you would find during the heart of winter instead of September.
The end result of this setup will be a heck of a shot of rain and chilly temps. It all starts a pattern that’s ripe for repeat performances over the next couple of weeks.
Today’s weather will feature a mix of sun and clouds with a shower or two possible. The highest chance will be across the west and south. Temps will be back in the 70s for highs. Your Sunday trackers:
Deeper moisture will begin to stream into the bluegrass on Monday as low pressure gathers steam across the south. Showers and thunderstorms will increase and the rain will become heavy at times by Monday night and Tuesday. Rainfall amounts of 1″-3″ will be likely across central and eastern Kentucky.
A blast of early season cold air will be working in behind the shield of rain on Tuesday. Here’s a map I made to show the impressive setup on Tuesday:
That’s a map I didn’t think I would ever draw in September and looks like something from late fall or winter.
The chilly air sweeps in here on Tuesday as temps fall from the 60s into the 50s by early evening. Skies will slowly clear out Tuesday night and may allow our temps to hit the upper 30s and low 40s by Wednesday morning. If we can get enough clearing, we could threaten a record low.
A similar setup may be with us again by Friday as another blast of chill dives into the region.
Enjoy your Sunday and take care.
