It’s been a nice-looking day with added sunshine after a couple of rainy and gloomy days. Cool air is still in place as you probably figured out this morning. Warm air has been filtering in as of late this morning thanks to a breezy southwesterly wind. Temperatures will rise to near 70 degrees this afternoon reminding us that it is still early fall.
We’re “stuck” in a continuously cool pattern thanks to several Canadian air masses looking to take a run at us. For the foreseeable future, we will remain below normal (~73 degrees) each day until sometime late next week. The next few days will consist of temperatures bottoming out in the 40s each morning, and afternoon highs barely rising above 60 degrees. The two coolest this week will be Friday with a high temperature of only 59 degrees. If that holds, it will be the first time we’ve remained below 60 degrees, all day since the middle of May. A low of 39 degrees is possible on Saturday morning and would also be the first below 40-degree temperature since the middle of May. That brings us to the first UK home game of the season. If you are heading out to the game, or staying home and having a tailgate, prepare for a cold morning, followed by a chilly day. Temperatures will run in the low 60s for the afternoon, but most of the day will be spent in the 40s and 50s. Game time is set for 4:00 pm which will be the warmest part of the day, and most of the game should get in before the sun drops and temperatures start cooling again. Sunset for Saturday is slated for 7:16 p.m. The end of the weekend will be met with rain showers as another front keeps us below normal. A nice rebound to a normal pattern sets up for the middle of next week.
