The past few days have been sweltering! We set another couple records: 98 on Wednesday and 97 on Thursday. Both of the previous records were crushed. And after the 4th straight day with a record high temp, we will finally start to cool off. The cold front that just passed through will bring us dry and cool condition for Friday. Temperatures will be right around 80 degrees with mostly sunny skies and dew points will be in the lower 50s. It is literally a perfect start to the weekend! Get out and Eno or enjoy a walk in the park if you are able to do so.
Saturday will be warmer as temperatures bump back up into the upper 80s. Winds will turn from NE to S during the day bringing more warm air into Southern Kentucky.
Sunday will be totally different. We are finally introducing a chance for significant rainfall into the forecast! A line of storms will move through the Ohio River and Tennessee Valleys late Sunday into early Monday morning. NAM and GFS both point to rainfall amounts of more than 1.5 inches. Whatever amount of rainfall we get, we need it! Every county surrounding Warren County by about 50 miles is in moderate to severe drought. Therefore, they are all under a burn ban.
By the time the rain moves out during the first half of Monday, nice, cool, dry air will move into our region. The start of next week will feel exactly as Fall should feel: temperatures will be in the low 70s and skies will be mostly clear. So get ready for pumpkin-pickin’ weather for the few days before Fall Break begins!
