Good Tuesday, everyone. It’s Election Day in the bluegrass state and our weather is making everyone a winner. This nice air is about to go bye-bye in a hurry as steamy temps push back in. That action looks to carry us right on through our Memorial Day Weekend.
Our Election Day features a mix of sun and clouds with temps generally in the 70s. A few low 80s will show up for southern and southeastern Kentucky as the warmer air begins to return.
The heat is on starting Wednesday as temps reach the mid and upper 80s in several areas. There is the chance for a shower or thunderstorm going up:
The setup for Thursday and Friday will feature temps ranging from 85-90 degrees in many areas. With a weak boundary just to our north, a few showers and storms will again be possible:
The Memorial Day Weekend continues to look toasty with temps back into the 85-90 degree range with high humidity levels. We will also have to be on guard for a few showers and storms dropping in from the northwest during this time:
That’s a steamy pattern that looks to carry us into next week as we get set to close out May and official kick off meteorological summer.
Hurricane season also kicks off on June 1st in the Atlantic Basin, but mother nature is jumping the gun with Subtropical Storm Andrea:
The pattern is favorable for early season development to continue. Make it a great Election Day and take care.
