Good Monday, folks. The closing days of September will feature more in the way of much-needed rain across Central and Eastern Kentucky. As a matter of fact, the overall pattern looks very active as we head into the first half of October.
Monday will feature mostly cloudy skies, with moisture streaming in from the Deep South. This could give us a few showers or isolated thunderstorms, with highs in the upper 70s to near 80.
The rain will really increase as we head into Tuesday. That’s when a surge of deep tropical moisture moves in and collides with an approaching cold front. The result will be showers and a few storms becoming pretty widespread. Here’s the morning-to-evening progression from the NAM:
Leftover showers will be around Wednesday as that system works off to our north and east.
A bigger area of low pressure is likely to develop near the East Coast late this week and the weekend. Similar to this past system, a blocking high is likely to show up across New England:
Those two could combine to throw some showers and chilly air our way during this time. That’s something to keep a close eye on as Keeneland kicks off its fall meet on Friday. It’s also fall break for many of the kiddos out there.
Have a great Monday and take care.
