Summer comes to a close in four days and as we finish the season, we do so with temperatures that represent it. Sunshine through the middle of the work week will provide enough heating to bump us up near 90 degrees through Friday. Right now, we’re already in the upper 70s and its slightly humid outside. Florence has left the state, and we’re not expecting rain until the end of the work week.
We’re tracking sunshine and warmth with just a smidge of humidity. A few cumulus are streaming over and the chance one of them produces a showers is there, but low. As we move into the middle of the week, rain chances lower further and so does the cloud coverage. Temperatures will do the opposite and give the dwindling summer days a run for their money. It may be hot for the end of summer, but fall is expected to start with temperatures representing it. Increasing clouds and cooler air will work together to bring a more “fall-like” feeling just as we move into the new season. Fall begins Saturday and temperatures will take a near 10 degree drop on that day. Rain showers and storms will be prevalent as a few fronts drive through Kentucky over the weekend time frame.
