No direct Kentucky impact from Matthew

Good Thursday to one and all. Hurricane Matthew is bearing down on Florida and is likely to be a catastrophic storm for the Atlantic coast all the way to South Carolina. As of now, this storm will not directly affect the weather in Kentucky.

We have another calm day, with highs near 80. Enjoy.

Clouds will increase Friday as some moisture well ahead of Matthew tries to back in from the east. This could throw a shower or two into Eastern Kentucky. The NAM rainfall map for Friday and Friday night:

The opening day of the fall meet at Keeneland looks good, with highs in the 70s.

A strong cold front arrives Saturday, but it shouldn’t have much moisture with it. Isolated showers or storms will be possible early in the day, with sunshine taking over late. Highs will be in the 60s with very gusty winds.

Readings drop into the 50s by early Saturday evening and could drop to the upper 30s and low 40s by Sunday morning. The NAM temp forecast for 8 a.m. Sunday:

Cool weather hangs into Sunday and Monday.

As far as Hurricane Matthew goes, I have you all set to do some tracking:

Make it a great day and take care.
