Feeling "crisp" this Saturday

Temperatures are running cooler by a solid 5-15 degrees thanks to the late-week cold front. That cooler air will translate out to a wonderful weekend with the addition of drier air in place. Temperatures are running low to middle 60s for this morning. Visibility seems to be doing well, but low-lying clouds are present in the southeast where a few light showers are moving out.

The cold front will continue to push south today, but it will put on the breaks across the Tennessee River Valley this afternoon and evening. This means we get a break from the rain through Saturday, with plenty of clearing in the Bluegrass. As we trek into Sunday, the stalled front will be pushed back north by a couple of pesky tropical disturbances. What this means is we will get the cloud coverage back, and even a few rounds of rain for the end of the week. It won’t be much, mostly equating to a few tenths of an inch and maybe up to a half inch. Not like this is bad, as we still sit abnormally dry or under drought conditions thanks to the hot and dry weather as of late. We will enter the work week with rain and thunderstorm chances. Another frontal boundary looks to sneak in middle of the week.
