Summer is back through Labor Day

Good Monday to one and all. As hard as it is to believe, we’re putting the finishing touches on the month of August. Overall, this month has been cooler and drier than normal across much of our region.

That said, summer isn’t giving up, as we have a nice period of very warm weather to take us through Labor Day weekend. Higher humidity also will return, and we will see a daily threat of a shower or thunderstorm.

You’re not going to see rain every day, by a long shot. But the potential is there through the weekend.

The Kentucky Wildcats kick off a new football season Saturday at newly renovated Commonwealth Stadium. Highs will be in the 80s for tailgaters, and we should see temps dropping into the 70s during the 7 p.m. game. There will be a small chance of scattered storms.

A cold front moves our way late Labor Day and Tuesday. This front should cause showers and storms to increase:


Much cooler air should come in behind that boundary for the middle and end of next week. This could be the beginning of a cooler than normal pattern that builds in for the middle of September:


Until then, it’s pretty steamy.

That steam can lead to scattered storms, and I have you set to track whatever is out there Monday:



Make it a great Monday and take care.
