Good Thursday morning to one and all. We have another fantastic weather day in the making across Central and Eastern Kentucky. Low humidity will combine with cool temps to make this day feel as if it’s straight out of the first week of October.
The day might start with record lows in several areas. The record for Lexington is 51 degrees from 2004, and that is likely to fall. Lows this morning will be in the upper 40s and low 50s across the entire region.
Skies will be mainly sunny, with some high clouds getting in by the afternoon. Highs today will reach the mid-70s.
Things begin to change on Friday with an increase in clouds as moisture increases from the deep south. That should lead to a scattered shower or thunderstorm:
Highs should stay in the upper 70s.
Moisture will continue to increase over the weekend, and that will lead to scattered showers and thunderstorms. A lot of what happens this weekend and early next week will depend on what goes on in the Gulf of Mexico. That’s where we might see a tropical system develop Thursday or Friday.

It is that time of the year!
Make it a great day and take care.
