Good Monday, folks. The first week of June is starting out on an absolutely gorgeous note across central and eastern Kentucky. A cool wind is blowing dry air back into the region as skies stay mainly sunny. That said, changes are in store later in the week.
Highs today are mainly in the low and middle 70s. Winds are a little gusty, adding some summer “cool” to the air. Skies will stay mostly sunny. Clear skies overnight will set the stage for temps to drop quickly. Most areas are in the low and middle 50s by morning:
Tuesday is a windy day with temps rebounding into the upper 70s in the east, with mid and upper 80s west. This is ahead of another backdoor cold front dropping in from the north and northeast. That will have a narrow band of showers and storms with it as it reinforces the cooler air for Wednesday, with the heat tickling western Kentucky:
That setup features heat to the west and cool to the northwest is one that puts us in the battle zone. That means our temps may fluctuate from hot to comfy from day to day. It also means to be on guard for thunderstorms diving in from the northwest by late week into the weekend:
I suspect this battle is something we see for the bulk of the summer that’s just starting. The above scenario may be a a setup that can produce something tropical down in the Gulf at some point next week.
Have a great day and take care.
