Tracking a potent cold front

Good Thursday to one and all. Another major cold front is on the way to the Bluegrass State and will arrive Friday. Ahead of this, showers and thunderstorms will increase. Behind it, our temperatures will take a big tumble, giving us another taste of fall.

Scattered storms are rumbling across the region Thursday, producing some heavy rain. Here are your tracking tools:

The actual cold front sweeps in Friday with a line of showers and storms rumbling in during the afternoon. Some of the storms could be strong or locally severe. The Storm Prediction Center shows the severe weather potential in our region:

The rain ends quickly from northwest to southeast Friday evening. Gusty winds will usher in much cooler air, with temps in the low 50s showing up by Saturday morning. The NAM shows a very cool day taking shape on Saturday:

The numbers from Friday through Saturday are way below normal for the first week of August:

That’s pretty incredible to see for the heart of summer, but I don’t know too many folks who will be complaining. The real complaining might come later Sunday and early next week. That’s when more rain pushes into the region.

Make it  a terrific Thursday and take care.
