Good Sunday, folks. We are about to say goodbye to this obnoxious heat that has engulfed the region for much of the month. Fall temperatures are about to blast into the bluegrass state on Monday, and they should stick around for a while.
Our cold front arrives by Monday afternoon and will have a band of gusty showers and thunderstorms. Temperatures will drop through the 60s as the showers move in.
This front continues to push to the east with chilly air swinging in behind it. As skies clear Monday night, temps may drop to 40-45 in many areas:
Highs on Tuesday may not get to 70 degrees for many areas. The conditions for the rest of the week will be determined by the upper low. The European is back to showing this system being right on top of us by the middle of the week:
That could give is a shower or two and act to keep highs in the upper 60s to low 70s for Wednesday and Thursday.
The cutoff low then strengthens and works back toward the west by Friday and Saturday. Check out the increase in showers during this time:
Any day that features clouds and showers can be VERY chilly. Even with sun, the best we could get may be low and middle 70s.
If we see that hanging around, that’s still a cool looking setup into the first few days of October.
Have a great Sunday and take care.
