A great start to the weekend

Good Saturday to one and all. The weather we’ve had over the past week is about as nice as you can get during any season. The fact we are getting this in the heart of fall makes it that much better. We have so many outdoor activities this time of year and we all owe mother nature a big thank you.

The good stuff continues out there today with highs in the mid 70s for many. A few spots may hit the upper 70s under partly sunny skies. High clouds will increase late in the day and some of these will be around for kickoff out at Commonwealth Stadium. The forecast goes like this:

Winds will kick up a bit as a cold front nears the region from the west. This should have enough juice to spit out a scattered shower or thunderstorm as we head into Sunday. The GFS is showing the best chance to be across eastern Kentucky:


Temps will stay in the 70-75 degree range into early next week. That’s when our attention turns to a plains storm that makes a run into the Great Lakes. This will drag a cold front across the state later Wednesday into Thursday. Showers and thunderstorms will be common during this time:

GFS 2A wave of low pressure may develop along the front and that’s something for us to keep a close eye on. Otherwise… it gets awfully chilly behind that boundary.

Overall, we’re heading into a much colder pattern for the second half of October.

Have a great Saturday and take care.
