We’ve had a few nice days with temperatures running warmer than average for the end of the week. But it’s a good chance you’ve heard rumbles of thunder over the last 24 hours and that was the cold front. Temperatures have already cooled by 15-20 degrees across the Bluegrass and western counties, and it will not be long before the cool air joins the east. As far as rain is concerned, light showers down to a mist is falling across the state.
Thanks to the morning cold front, we go from well above normal, back to below. Temperatures nearly reached 80 degrees yesterday and will struggle to make 50 this afternoon. This will be in part due to cooler air behind the front, but also due to abundant cloud coverage. The clouds are something to get used to for this week. It will be either mostly cloudy or overcast through this week thanks to saturated cool air. Each day has at least a small chance for showers, mostly light and scattered. A couple of days will feature better chances for showers or even thunderstorms. Thursday has a high chance for rain and thunderstorms thanks to the remnants of what will become Zeta in the next couple of days. Of course, there is still a bit of time between now and then, so the track and rain intensity are likely to change. The next chance for sunshine will be over Halloween weekend.
