Record lows possible

Good Sunday and welcome to late September. I know… the calendar says July, but mother nature decided to hit the fast forward button for a few days. Our second big push of cool air this week is likely to result in record lows for some areas.

Today will start with readings in the low and middle 50s and that may be good enough to knock a few records out. Skies today will be partly sunny with readings in the low and mid 70s. We aren’t the only ones dealing with the cool air. Check out how far below normal much of the region is today:

Monday’s record low in Lexington is 57 degrees from all the way back in 1937. That record is likely to fall as temps fall back into the low 50s. The rest of the day will see temps back into the 70s with a mix of sun and high clouds.

The pattern starts to change a bit by Tuesday as warm air bubbles up across the southern plains. This will send rounds of showers and storms our way by late Tuesday into Wednesday:

Heavy rain totals are possible during this time and that may move us closer to the wettest July on record.

Temps will spike up by the end of the week before another round of storms moves in at some point next weekend. That is expected to be followed by another massive dip in the jet stream the following week:

Make it a great Sunday and take care.
