Guess what? It’s still not fall. Today was warm and muggy, again. With all the mugginess and an approaching “cool” front, scattered showers and thundershowers are being added to the mix. We are tracking this boundary to dive southward this evening. Scattered activity will be around late-day before fizzling after dark.

There won’t be much cooling off behind this “cool front.” Lows will settle into the low 60s, Friday’s highs will reach the low 80s. There will also be the possibility for an isolated shower or storm again Friday as the boundary changes its identity and bubbles northward as a warm front.

High pressure will be firmly in control, and temperatures will be “off to the races” this weekend. We are tracking highs in the mid 80s Saturday and Sunday. The temperature trend cools off a touch early next week, but highs will still remain unseasonably warm. There are signs of a pattern flip, which would bring fall to the Bluegrass towards the middle of October.
