A very busy week of weather ahead

Good Sunday, folks. It’s an interesting setup for the week ahead as a tropical system meets up with a cold front. Those two in tandem should bring another big rain event to central and eastern Kentucky. That would then unleash some real deal fall chill on our region.

Before we get to all that, let’s talk about today’s weather. Scattered showers and thunderstorms will be noted, with locally heavy rains a good bet. Here are your Sunday tracking toys:

Matthew to be is developing in the Caribbean and will soon move into the Gulf of Mexico:

That system heads toward the coast by Tuesday then gets drawn northward by an approaching major fall front. I made this map on Friday and I’m still rolling with it:

The combination of an approaching front and a tropical system meeting up on us could bring another big rain event to much of the bluegrass state.

The operational models are now similar to the map I made:

The Hurricane Models are bending back to the west from their original forecast:

So, we have a very interesting setup with a tropical system being entrained into a true fall cold front. This has the potential to bring significant rains our way for Wednesday and Thursday. The weather turns chilly behind this, with cold weather following another system next weekend.

Have a great Sunday and take care.
