It has been a very nice start to the first day of this weekend. Expect a lovely weekend with very sunny skies and comfortable temperatures. Today expect temperatures to reach the mid 70s with plenty of sunshine all across the mid-south. However a jacket may be necessary due of how windy it will be.
Due to the Low pressure over the Great Lakes today will send chilly, gusty winds into the Kentucky area. By the end of the afternoon winds should be primarily from the West at about 20 MPH and gusting to 30 or 35 MPH. After the sun sets the winds should die down for the evening bringing the over night low into the middle 40s.
This weekend will be a fantastic weekend for football across the the south. Plenty of sunshine is expected from our dominating high pressure off to the southwest. Temperatures are expected to stay in the mid 70s for the entire weekend. Lows for the weekend will be in the mid 50s, so if out and about after sunset a lightweight jacket would be handy.
Starting the upcoming week, sunshine is still expected with winds switching to the south. Storm chances increases on Tuesday with the oncoming of a powerful cold front making its way into the region. Highs for the middle of next week look to drop into the mid 60s as much cooler air lingers behind the front for Wednesday and Thursday.
