Good Monday to one and all. The first full week of November will feature much milder air moving into Central and Eastern Kentucky. As this is happening, signs of a chilly change are showing up for the weekend.
Let’s start with where we are Monday. Low clouds will slowly begin to break from northwest to southeast. Low pressure passing us by to the south and east will throw a few showers into southeastern Kentucky. The majority of the heavy rain will miss the region:
Election Day looks pretty good in terms of the forecast. Highs will hit the upper 60s to lower 70s with a mix of sun and clouds. Overall, there shouldn’t be any weather-related problems to keep you from voting.
Highs by Wednesday and Thursday should be in the low 70s, but there is a small threat of a shower each day. The future radar from the NAM shows some isolated stuff:
A potent cold front should roll our way by Friday and the start of the weekend. That should have gusty showers and thunderstorms ahead of it:
That would set the stage for a wet evening for the first round of the high school football playoffs.
Much colder air is likely to follow the front, but a few of the models show a slowdown in that push of chilly air. That’s because they show a possible second area of low pressure showing up for Saturday and Sunday:
A seasonal brand of cold air would then follow that system later in the weekend and early next week.
All the more reason to enjoy the mild air of this week.
Make it a great day and take care.
