Good Saturday to one and all. Our final weekend of July is off and running on a heck of a weather note. Sunny and dry conditions with near normal temps are showing up across central and eastern Kentucky. Enjoy it… Changes are showing up as we roll into next week.
High temps today will be in the middle and upper 80s for most with a mostly sunny sky continuing.
Similar temps will be noted on Sunday, but the threat for showers and storms will increase a bit.
A northwesterly flow aloft means we will have to be on guard for possible storm clusters developing and diving in here. The NAM suggests this happens Sunday night into Monday:
Locally heavy rains and some strong storms will be possible during this time. Scattered storms and steamy temps would then be around into Tuesday and Wednesday. That’s when we focus on a cold front diving in here from the northwest. This front will bring an increase in showers and storms and a decrease in temps by the end of the week.
The European Model shows the front on top of the region by Thursday and also shows a developing tropical system off the east coast:
Have a great day and take care.
