Another blast of September moves in

Good Monday to one and all. We are coming off a weekend of severe weather across Central and Eastern Kentucky. Wind damage and large hail were reported across the region. Lexington was hit by wind gusts as high as 95 mph shortly before noon Sunday. Wow.

The severe-weather threat has now moved well away from our region, and now we focus on the big blast of cool. This will lead to another prolonged stretch of well below-normal temperatures. We could even flirt with record lows in the coming days.

Today will feature a mix of sun and clouds, with the chance of  a few afternoon showers. Highs will range from the mid- to upper 70s in most areas.

Lows over the next few mornings might drop all the way into the upper 40s and lower 50s. The GFS is certainly going in that direction:

GFS 4That setup will leave behind a cutoff low by the coming weekend. This means additional showers and a few thunderstorms develop as highs get only to the upper 70s and low 80s.

Have a great day and take care.
