Football weather has finally arrived in the Bluegrass! No weather worries whether you’re heading to a high school or a college game this weekend.

Let’s start with the high schoolers. Not a bad idea to bring a hoodie and blanket for bleachers along with you tonight. It’s the first cool Friday night of the season. After kicking off in the mid to upper 60s, it will cool quickly once the sun sets. We are tracking temperatures near 60, maybe even the upper 50s in spots by post game. Sunshine has been gradually eroding the low cloud deck. But by the end of the game some clouds will fill back in.

Another cold front will take a run at the Commonwealth tonight. Don’t worry though, this boundary will be moisture-starved. Any showers that develop will have a hard time reaching us. Clouds will drift back in and cool air will be re-enforced.


Dare I say the weekend will be perfect! Outside of some areas of dense fog in the morning we are looking good. Tailgating? Heading to the game tomorrow? You’ve got nothing to worry about, except maybe how to dress. During tailgates it will be warmish with temperatures in the low 70s. By game time it will feel like football season. We are tracking temperatures to quickly drop close to 60° by the end of the game.

Sunday – yard work-palooza. We are tracking more sunshine and seasonably warm highs near 80°. Hope you enjoy the weekend! You earned it!
