Good Thursday to one and all. This might wind up as the hottest day we’ve had so far this year. As highs hit the 90s, I’m tracking a much better brand of air pushing into the region for the weekend.
Highs Thursday day should reach the low 90s into much of Central and Eastern Kentucky. A high of 95 is possible across southern parts of the region. There also is the chance that a late-day shower or thunderstorm fires up.
Cooler air blows into the region for Friday as a big storm system wraps up along the East Coast. Highs may reach only the low 80s in many areas:
There still could be a leftover shower or storm across the east. That shows up well on the GFS:
Highs this weekend will generally run in the 80s with mostly sunny skies. Overall, that’s a pretty darn nice weekend. Lows might drop into the upper 50s in a few spots.
The heat builds back in early next week was we make another run at 90 degrees, but a cold front tries to cut the heat off:
Showers and storms may bring some much better temps back for the middle and end of next week.
Have a great day and take care.
