Showers working into the region

Good Sunday, folks. A cold front is slowly pushing across the bluegrass state today. A band of clouds and gusty showers will be along and ahead of the boundary as it works eastward. While we track today’s action… the setup for the end of next week and weekend is getting my attention.

Let’s start with what’s going on with the front we have today. A line of showers will work across western Kentucky early this morning, and should arrive into central parts of the state by early afternoon. The showers will weaken the farther east they get.

Let’s track them…

Again, this is NOT a washout of  a day. Areas east of Interstate 75 may not see very much rain, at all. Temps today will hit the 70s in the east and stay in the upper 60s to around 70 in central Kentucky.

A few more showers will be around into Monday as highs reach the upper 60s to low 70s.

Tuesday through Thursday will feature temps warming into the upper 70s to around 80 with a fair amount of humidity. That can lead to a shower or thunderstorm popping up.

The main action comes by Friday into the weekend. That’s when a powerful system looks to work across the Ohio Valley, unleashing some very chilly air behind it. Here’s the GFS:

That has a lot of ugly written all over it, if that comes to pass. Heavy rain and wind from Friday into Saturday would give way to the coldest air of the season:

GFS 2If the models are correct, this could set us up for the first frost of the season. I will keep you updated on those chances as we roll forward.

Make it a great Sunday and take care.
