The summer that won’t end

Good Tuesday, everyone. It’s no secret that our summer has been a toasty one across Central and Eastern Kentucky. Allow me to let you in on another little secret: It’s not about to end anytime soon.

Temps this week will average much above normal, with a lot of highs in the mid and upper 80s. There’s a chance that we hit 90 at some point later in the week. If you’re thinking about record highs, that’s probably not going to happen. Records on most days are deep into the 90s.

Much of the week also looks dry, with just a chance of showers in the east.

This should change in a big way as we head into the weekend. One cold front gets ready to dive in from the north and northeast, with another waiting in the wings by Monday.

Here’s the setup from Saturday to Sunday:

That front can kick off a shower or storm late Saturday, and knock temps way down on Sunday, but only for parts of the state:

gfs-temps-1

That’s a heck of a temp gradient setting up along that boundary. Just how far south it can get will be the determining factor on how pleasant your Sunday will be.

That next front drops in with scattered showers and storms on Monday. Another front drops in by the middle of next week with a deeper dip in the jet stream:

gfs-2

That’s the one that can bring a few days of very cool air into our region. “Can” being the key word.

Have a great day and take care.
