Here comes the chill

Good Saturday, everyone. Much colder air is blowing across the Bluegrass State as a cold front pushes east. This might drop the temperature into the upper 30s in some areas over the next couple of mornings.

As all of this is happening around here, Hurricane Matthew is lashing the southeastern coast. I will have your tropical trackers in a bit.

We could see a shower out there early Saturday, but skies quickly clear in the afternoon, with highs in the 60s. Winds will be very gusty and could reach 30 mph at times early on.

Temperatures drop quickly into the 50s by sunset with readings in the upper 40s before midnight in some areas. With clear skies the next few nights, the models continue to show lows dropping into the upper 30s and low 40s:

Patchy frost is a possibility in some of the sheltered valleys, especially Monday morning. Highs will be in the 60s through Monday. This shot of air has been on our radar for well over a week now. What’s next on the radar?

Highs will again be in the 70s by Tuesday and Wednesday, with partly sunny skies and gusty winds. A cold front moves in early Thursday with gusty winds and the chance of a shower or thunderstorm:

The core of the cold stays to our north, but it should knock temps down into the low and middle 60s by Thursday. As temps try to rebound by next weekend, we have to watch for some rain trying to develop.

I leave you with your tropical weather trackers:

Have a great day and take care.
