Good Saturday, folks. It’s another very chilly day across central and eastern Kentucky, but the day looks really nice. Unfortunately, things are about to go downhill very quickly over the next few days as more rain rolls into Kentucky.
Temps early this morning are in the middle 30s with a kiss of frost following some Friday night showers. We will have a mix of sun and clouds out there today, but the clouds may be stubborn in some areas. Temps will be back in the 50s for highs.
What’s left of Pacific Hurricane Sergio is crossing out of Mexico and into Texas early today, with the hurricane models still picking up on the remnant low, bringing it toward us later Sunday:
That’s just amazing to see a remnant tropical low move that quickly (or at any speed) from the Pacific to Kentucky. Folks, these are strange weather times we are living in.
This system brings a surge of rain in here tonight and Sunday, with waves of heavy rain continuing through Monday:
As that system departs, it leaves behind some pretty nice fall weather for later Tuesday through Thursday. Frosty mornings are likely for both Wednesday and Thursday, but the afternoons look really good with below normal temps.
Another system works in from the southwest as we head into next weekend. That will help unleash an even colder air mass:
That cold shot could very well put an official end to the growing season.
Make it a sensational Saturday and take care.
