Good Friday, everyone. If you’re a fan of early fall, this is the forecast for you. Temps have taken on a late September feel of late, and we have even cooler air on the way this weekend and early next week.
All of this is happening during what should be the hottest time of the year. Normal highs right now are in the upper 80s, with record highs in the 100-degree range.
Today will be a bit warmer than the last few days, with highs in the 80-85 degree range. Skies will be mainly sunny, with some high clouds working in from the west. That should make for a gorgeous afternoon and evening sky.
A cold front will move in Saturday, and it will spawn a broken line of showers and thunderstorms. Highs will top out in the upper 70s to about 80. The dip in the jet stream is something you don’t see very often in summer:
The end result will be highs in the 70s and lows in the 50s:
Record lows are possible by Sunday and Monday. That’s right, I said record lows are possible as we get set to close out the month of July.
Normal warmth will fight back into the region by late Tuesday and Wednesday, and it will bring the prospect of showers and thunderstorms to the Bluegrass State.
Until then, enjoy September.
Have a great Friday and take care.
