Good Tuesday, everyone. A powerhouse of a cold front is working to our south and is unleashing a round of September air for the rest of the week. When you bring that kind of air to the middle of July, you have to start watching for record lows. That’s possible over the next few days.
Highs today will be MUCH cooler with readings in the middle 70s for highs for most areas. A few morning showers and storms may be noted as the cold front swings in.
Record lows are possible Wednesday morning. The record for Lexington is 50 from 1945. I think we get very close to that number. The GFS says we beat it:
Highs for Wednesday should range from the low to mid 70s for much of the region with a mix of sun and clouds. Thursday morning could also feature record or near record lows across the region. The record for Lexington is 53 from 1976.
Another shot of rain will roll our way by Friday and Saturday. Some of the models suggest a decent amount:
That would act to keep our temps well below normal into the start of the weekend. You know… I could totally get used to this!
Make it a great day and take care.
