Good Wednesday to one and all. The current storm system affecting the region continues to bring heavy rain and high winds to the region. This one will blow out of town Thursday, but another appears to be ready to take its place later this weekend.
Of course, that could cause some issues for plans for our huge weekend. I will get to that one in a moment. First, let’s talk about the one hanging on across this region.
Heavy rain and thunderstorms are out there to begin the day as winds crank to greater than 30 mph at times. This action becomes more scattered in the afternoon as some breaks in the clouds appear. Highs hit the 60s.
The cold front arrives Wednesday night with another band of gusty showers. Temps behind this will drop into the low 40s by Thursday morning as skies clear. Windy and chilly weather will be with us Thursday, with highs in the 50s.
Breeders’ Cup weekend at Keeneland starts Friday, and the weather looks great. The day starts in the frosty low 30s and ends in the mid- and upper 50s.
Saturday is where we could start to see some problems. A big area of low pressure across Texas is going to throw clouds and a few showers our way before the day is over. As a matter of fact, the models are a little quicker in bringing showers into town. The NAM shows a wall of rain approaching by Saturday morning:
In addition to the Breeders’ Cup, Saturday is Halloween, and we have a Kentucky-Tennessee football game at Commonwealth Stadium. The timing of the arrival of the rain is crucial and I will continue to focus on it over the next few days.
Heavy rains are likely to develop Sunday into Monday before temps warm into next week.
Make it a great day and take care.
