Good Wednesday to one and all. We continue our run of warm and muggy days to begin October. Scattered showers and storms have been common and we have more of the same on the way. Some of those showers and storms may impact the opening of the fall meet out at Keeneland.
Today is another warm one with highs hitting the 80-85 degree mark. Humidity levels are also up and that will help fire off a scattered shower or storm:
A cold front will move our way later Thursday and should get close enough for a line of showers and thunderstorms to drop in. That happens in the afternoon and evening, with a few of the storms may be on the strong side:
That front never really clears the region, but does keep a shower or storm going into Friday. Highs are back in the 80-85 degree range.
Another front moves close on Saturday, but never makes it through. It will kick off a few more scattered showers and storms:
This warm and humid setup rolls into early next week, at least. That’s when we start watching to see what the tropics can spit out and if it can interact with the trough trying to eject from the west.
The Canadian continues to be pretty excited about this potential:
The GFS is getting closer to this solution, albeit a few days slower:
Enjoy your Wednesday and take care.
