Today still feels like summer, but by tomorrow there will be a definite fall feel in the air. A relatively weak and moisture-starved cold front is passing through the Bluegrass. This will be more of an air mass changer than a rain maker for us. Hot and muggy conditions will be replaced by cooler and drier air. Highs will run into the upper 70s to lower 80s with overnight temperatures dipping into the 50s through the end of the week. Temperatures will be on the way up over the weekend before spiking early next week with highs close to 90 degrees.
Meanwhile, Hurricane Dorian continues to hug the coast of the southeastern US. Northeastern Florida, Georgia, and the Carolinas are bracing for tropical storm- to hurricane-force winds, heavy rain, and significant storm surge. Landfall is possible Thursday or Friday along the Outer Banks. We are approaching the peak of the hurricane season and the tropics are very active around the rest of the Atlantic Basin - two other named storms and two more areas of possible development over the next two to five days.
