Good Wednesday to one and all. We’ve made it to the middle of the week and it’s all downhill toward the weekend. And heading down is exactly what our temperatures will be doing as we roll toward Friday and into the weekend.
Record lows might be challenged by the time we hit Saturday and Sunday.
Until then, it’s still steamy, with an increasing threat of showers and thunderstorms. We will continue to watch the storms develop during the afternoon and evening. Some of those might contain a lot of rain and lightning. We’ll keep on eye on them, and you can too:
A strong cold front arrives Thursday, and this will provide us with a good shot of showers and thunderstorms. One or two of those could be on the strong side. This front will bring a major shot of cool air for much of the eastern half of the country:
When a fall front makes it all the way to the Gulf of Mexico, it usually has a big push of chilly air behind it. That’s exactly what shows up on the GFS:Record lows Saturday and Sunday morning for Lexington are in the low 40s, and those could be threatened.
The nice air means great weather for those filling Commonwealth Stadium on Saturday for the Cats’ big game.
Have a great day and take care.
