Tracking a 50/50 Weekend

Posted at 2:24 PM, Aug 10, 2018

The Commonwealth is stuck in the middle of a nagging stationary front to the south and a cold front that will drive southward Saturday. The stalled boundary across Tennessee has kept rain and storms around southern Kentucky today. We will all get back in the storm action tomorrow with the previously mentioned cold front.

We are tracking scattered storms Saturday afternoon. The cold front will be just about out of juice when it reaches the Bluegrass. But still locally heavy rain will be possible during the afternoon and evening hours. Activity should fizzle once the sun goes. Sunday will be the pick day with partly sunny skies and slightly lower humidity. If you’re looking to catch a glimpse of the Perseid meteor shower peak, Sunday night will be your best bet for a clearer view.

It will only be a quick break from storms. We are tracking waves of showers and storms to sweep through central and eastern Kentucky next week.
