Summer keeps going

Good Monday, and welcome to another week of summer temps. This hotter-than-normal pattern just won’t go away, and it could another 90-degree day our way later this week.

Monday will be a pretty nice day, with partly sunny skies and highs in the low 80s.

Tropical depression Julia continues to spin along the North Carolina coast. This might back to the west and throw some showers into Eastern Kentucky over the next few days. This is a cool future radar loop from the NAM:

That moves away by the second half of the week. This is when temperatures can really take off, with lots of highs in the upper 80s showing up. Local 90 degree highs will be possible into the start of the weekend.

Changes start to show up by Sunday and Monday as a strong cold front rolls across the region:

A gusty line of showers and thunderstorms will be possible along and ahead of that front. The big news would be the significantly cooler air coming in behind it. Check out this deep dip in the jet stream:

Have a magnificent Monday and take care.
