Good Saturday to one and all. The weather over the past few days has been about as ugly as it can get around here. Wind, rain and chilly temps combined to make for some miserable conditions.
It looks like the weather we have out there today isn’t going to be much different. Another wave of heavy rain producing showers will work through here from east to west. Some areas could pick up anther one inch of rain, with locally higher amounts in the southeast. Recent runs of the NAM have really been hitting some of those areas hard:
This moisture is from a huge storm system across the east coast. No, this is not from Joaquin. That hurricane will stay well to the east of the coast and that’s certainly good news. Even without that storm, historic flooding is possible across South and North Carolina.
Back here in Kentucky, gusty winds and chilly temps will join our rain. Highs will only reach the low 50s with wind gusts to 30mph possible.
The forecast hasn’t changed much for Wildcats and Colonels fans:
If there is any good news in that, it’s the rain chances may decrease some as we go through the game. Still… It’s going to be a blustery game.
Better weather blows in for Sunday as partly sunny skies return. Temps should warm into the upper 60s and low 70s for highs. Winds will still be rather gusty and I can’t rule out a stray shower.
Nice weather looks to be with us for the first half of next week with low 70s for highs. The next cold front to impact our region sweeps in by the end of the week.
