Watching Beta and late week changes

Good Monday to one and all. Our gorgeous fall weather continues to show up and show off across the bluegrass state and we have more to come through the first half of the week. By the time we get into the second half of the week, tropical rains from Beta look to impact our weather. That should be ahead of a big system that can bring heavy rain, wind and even colder air than the past few days.

Sunday was another chilly morning across the state. My tweet has all you need to know:

We are back into the 40s for lows through Tuesday for most and into Wednesday across central and eastern parts of the state. Highs are still awesome!

Tropical Storm Beta is slowly rolling toward Texas and should make landfall on Monday. There is an increasing consensus for this storm to get close enough to us to bring the potential for rain from Wednesday night through Friday. The latest Hurricane Model forecasts show what I’m talking about:

The forecast from the National Hurricane Center now includes Kentucky in the cone of uncertainty:

The bulk of this looks to come out over the weekend and merge with a deep trough digging into the region. This may blow up a good old fashioned rain storm that ushers in very cold air behind it:

This is one monster setup on the EURO:

Yowza.

Have a wonderful Monday and take care.
