Good Saturday to one and all. It’s another toasty temperature day, but comfy changes show up for Sunday. As the old saying goes, ‘you ain’t seen nothing yet’. Much bigger changes arrive next week as what’s left of Cristobal play a big part in the weather across Kentucky.
Today’s weather is very steamy with temps deep into the 80s ahead of our front. There’s the chance for a few storms, but this stuff isn’t very concentrated. The air behind this front is MUCH less humid for Sunday. Temps will range from the upper 70s in the northeast to the mid and upper 80s west.
Tropical Storm Cristobal continues to barrel toward Louisiana and should make landfall late Sunday or early Monday:
Here’s the forecast from the National Hurricane Center, bringing the cone of uncertainty into far western Kentucky:
What’s left of Cristobal will then merge with a front dropping in from the northwest late Tuesday and Wednesday:
That setup keeps the heaviest rains to our west, but that negative tilt of the trough could fire up some strong or severe storms around here Wednesday.
With the remnants of Cristobal passing just to our west, some big time winds may show up across parts of Kentucky. You can see the path of the storm based on the wind gust forecast:
Temps ahead of this will hit 90 on Tuesday, but drop quickly behind this Wednesday and Thursday. Another front drops in here on Friday and brings a push of even cooler air for next weekend. The Canadian is going gangbusters:
It could get really cool across much of the eastern part of the country during this time!
Here are your tracking toys for the day:
Have a great day and take care.
