Good Wednesday, everyone. Mild air continues across central and eastern Kentucky and this is making for a pleasant start to October. Now, some scattered showers and thunderstorms will join the mix.
The storms will be rather spotty in nature today, and most areas won’t see very much in the way of rain. Our network of radars will keep you covered:
Highs today will be back in the mid and upper 70s for most of the region.
The threat for showers and storms may increase a bit as we head into Thursday. That’s when a little deeper moisture rides into the commonwealth. The future radar from the NAM shows some action:
With some showers and storms around, temps will be a little bit cooler tomorrow than the past few days.
The opening day of the fall meet at Keenland looks pretty darn good. Highs will hit the upper 70s to around 80 on a gusty southwesterly wind. There is only a very small chance for a shower or thunderstorm.
The threat for showers and storms will increase as we get deeper into the weekend. The storm system expected to impact our weather is slowing down. That may mean Saturday turns out to be a mainly dry day. That may also mean Sunday into Monday turn fairly damp as cooler air moves in.
The GFS shows a nice cutoff area of low pressure meandering across our region:
Make it a great day and take care.
