Good Sunday to one and all. We’re putting the wraps on a scorcher of a weather weekend in Central and Eastern Kentucky. The hottest air of the season waited until the end of August to get here, but it’s doing some work on us right now.
This hot spell has a few more days left in the tank, but some cooler changes show up as we flip the calendar to September. I doubt many of you will complain about that.
Let’s start with Sunday before we roll into the week ahead.
Highs will again be in the upper 80s to low 90s, with a heat index approaching 100 degrees. Scattered showers and storms will also be possible, and a few of those could be strong.
Monday’s weather looks an awful lot like Sunday. Temps by Tuesday and Wednesday come down just a few degrees, with the threat of scattered storms continuing.
With a slower developing tropical system likely in the Gulf of Mexico, this allows for a cold front to drop in Thursday. That front may not have much moisture to work with, but a nice push of cool is showing up behind it by Friday:
The GFS highs for Friday:
Lows by Saturday morning look good:
Temps should rebound to above normal for the rest of the holiday weekend, but not to the levels we are seeing now.
Have a great day and take care.
