Good Saturday, folks. We have a strong cold front working across central and eastern Kentucky today. This front will bring scattered showers and storms through here, but the big news will be amount of cold air coming in behind it. Record lows may go down by Sunday and Monday.
Many of us have outdoor activities today and will need to be mindful of the scattered shower and storm threat. This won’t be an all day rain, but keep the umbrellas handy as the scattered stuff works through.
With the clouds and rain around… temps will struggle to get out of the upper 70s.
The cold front swings in here this evening and the cool air will surge in behind it. Readings over the next few mornings will drop into the low and mid 50s and that may mean record low temps.
The record lows for Lexington:
Sunday: 54 (2004)
Monday: 57 (1937)
Both of those are in serious jeopardy.
High temps Sunday and Monday will be in the low and middle 70s with a partly to mostly sunny sky. It simply can’t get much cooler than this during the heart of summer in Kentucky.
The deep dip in the jet stream this weekend will slowly lift out into early next week. Still, we will continue to see somewhat of a dip through most of next week:
That will keep temps normal to below normal for the week with the threat for showers and storms returning. We should get in on that action as soon as Tuesday.
Have a great Saturday and take care.
