Good Friday to one and all. It’s the first full day of fall, but the weather continues to be stuck on summer. Toasty temps take us through the weekend, but a much cooler pattern is settling in for next week.
Highs Friday and Saturday will be 85 to 90 for much of Central and Eastern Kentucky. Things look to be in good shape for high school football fans this evening, and for University of Kentucky fans Saturday evening.
The winds of change begin to blow in Monday. This is when a strong cold front works into the region from the west. Showers and thunderstorms begin to increase and might carry us into Tuesday. The GFS is most aggressive with the rain potential:
The models disagree on the amount of rain, but they all agree on much cooler air around here. Check out where the coolest air in relation to normal is:
Highs for Wednesday and Thursday of next week might struggle to get to 70 degrees in many areas:
After the recent heat we’ve had, I doubt too many people will be complaining about the cooler numbers.
Have a great Friday and take care.
