Forecast: Heading into Fall feeling a lot like Summer.
The calendar says Fall begins this Saturday, but Mother Nature has other plans for south-central Kentucky. The 90s have returned to the forecast as of Tuesday. In fact, Tuesday marked the 65th day with a high temperatures at or above 90 degrees and it appears that we have a few more 90s in our future.
The next 90 degree day will be, you guessed it, the very next day! Expect a very similar day Wednesday as the heat continues with highs between 90-95. Again, we can't completely rule out a few pop up showers or storms in the afternoon, but many of us will remain quiet and dry through the next few days. Humidity will also be on the high side, but not as intense as some of the hotter days earlier this year.
The next best chance of showers and storms heads our way along a stationary front that moves in Friday afternoon and evening. The front will stall out across Kentucky and Tennessee on Saturday, giving us a chance of rain and storms through the duration of the upcoming weekend. It won't necessarily be a consistent rain, but have the rain gear at the ready if you're heading outdoors, especially Sunday as the frontal boundary begins to lift to the north right over southern Kentucky.
Most of the rain should be gone by Monday or Tuesday of next week, but another potent system looks to move in by the middle part of the week. We will keep a close eye on that as it could also bring some cooler temperatures to the region and make it feel a bit more like Autumn than the dog days of Summer!
