Good Wednesday to one and all. The first of two cold fronts continues to push across the bluegrass state today. This is ushering in a much better brand of air and give us a taste of September. The next front looks to arrive by the weekend and will give us round 2 of cooler than normal temps.
Showers and storms dumped more heavy rain on the region last night. This pushed Lexington up to the 6th wettest July on record and we still have a week left in the month.
The day starts with some clouds and a leftover shower or two across southern and southeastern Kentucky.
Temps this afternoon will top out around the 80 degree mark for much of the region. Humidity levels will come down from north to south as we go through the day.
Thursday looks very nice with upper 50s to start and low 80s to end. Skies will be partly sunny.
Temps and humidity levels will come up a bit for Friday and that may lead to a scattered storm or two. A broken line of storms will work in here on Saturday as our next cold front swings in:
Temps will come back down into the upper 70s and low 80s for highs from the weekend into early next week. Lows by Monday and Tuesday will be back into the upper 50s.
That’s what happens when you get a big dip in the jet stream:
Have a great Wednesday and take care.
