Finally feeling like June

Good Thursday, everyone. We have one of the coldest starts to June ever for Lexington and much of the region. The first three days of the month have spent more time in the 50s than anywhere near our normal 80-degree highs. That is about to change as warmer air moves into the Bluegrass.

You will notice the difference out there Thursday, with highs in the upper 70s and low 80s with some sunshine. That’s right: some sunshine. The humidity will be higher, and there is the threat of isolated showers and storms.

Highs should be in the 80- to 85-degree range Friday:

NAM 3

The day might end with a few rounds of showers and storms working in from the northwest. Those show up on the simulated radar from the NAM:

NAM 2

That same temperature and radar pattern is likely for the weekend. Areas getting sunshine could see highs in the mid- and upper 80s on a given day. If your area gets some clouds or showers and storms, highs would be much lower.

A cold front is poised to drop in later Monday and Tuesday. That should bring more widespread showers and storms:

GFS 2

We have a long way to go before we get to there, so let’s track what’s going on Thursday.
