Scattered showers for a few areas

Good Sunday, everyone. The past few weeks have been very, very dry across central and eastern Kentucky. That’s not a bad thing considering how wet our summer was. This recent dry spell will continue for much of the region, but some scattered showers will come calling over the next few days.

Much of the shower action will be across the south and southeast through Monday. Isolated showers may reach as far north and west as the Lexington metro. With a few more clouds around, temps will be a little cooler than the past few days.

Windy and warm weather returns by the middle of the week as our winds crank from the southwest. This is just ahead of a very strong cold front that plows into town by Thursday night and Friday:


Gusty winds and a line of showers and thunderstorms will be with us during this time. The air behind that front is MUCH colder and may push our highs into the low and mid 60s for Saturday and Sunday.

The GFS Ensembles give us a colder look than what they were showing us yesterday:

GFS 2That will make for a very chilly first weekend of October here in the bluegrass state.

Before we get to there, enjoy what’s left of our final weekend of September. Take care.
