Upper level low continues to spin

Good Friday, folks. The last day of September features our big upper level low continuing to spin across central and eastern Kentucky. This low will keep cool temps and scattered showers and storms rolling into the start of the weekend.

Highs today will be back into the low to middle 60s in most areas. It’s not going to rain all the time, but any shower or storm can put down some very heavy rains in any one location.

High school football fans should have the jackets ready, and may want to pack a poncho to be safe. Scattered showers and temps in the 50s will be noted.

Track away:

Saturday should feature a few more showers and thunderstorms spinning around the low as it lifts northward. Temps will generally run in the 60s again.

Sunday is mainly dry, but there may be just enough leftover juice for isolated showers to pop.

Early next week looks ok as we turn our attention toward another cold front heading our way by the middle and end of the week. It’s at the same time we may find a powerful hurricane named Matthew sitting off the southeastern coastline.

This leaves open a lot of options of what happens with this whole mess. The GFS brings the hurricane into the Carolinas and up the east coast:


The European Model is quicker with the front heading into our region:


That blast of chill moving in here, helps the European Model keep Matthew just off the coast:


We still have a lot of time to follow this setup.

In the meantime, make it a great Friday and take care.
