Good Tuesday, folks. The weather we have out there this week is about as good as you can get at any point of the year. To get this kind of fall air mass in August just makes it feel even better.
The good news is it sticks around all week long across Central and Eastern Kentucky. Daytime highs will run in the 70s, and some of the models suggest Wednesday highs struggling to get out of the low 70s:
Overnight lows will drop into the upper 40s and lower 50s through Friday. Skies during this time should be mostly clear, and that just adds to the awesomeness of the weather out there.
Subtle changes show up this weekend and early next week as a weakness in the atmosphere develops. This basically means we could see a bit of a pipeline develop from the Gulf of Mexico into our region. That could allow for scattered showers and thunderstorms to develop.
You can see that showing up on the European Model rainfall forecast:
Temps will come up somewhat during that time, but they should stay a little below normal as we get ready to close out the month of August.
Warmer air looks to try and fight in for Labor Day weekend, and that’s something I will focus more on in the coming days.
Make it a terrific Tuesday and take care.
