A Change in Seasons, But No Change in the Weather

Good morning, folks of South Central Kentucky! Welcome to yet another blog post. Today, we welcome the first day of the fall season and all of its glory (whether you’re happy about this or not.) We will see a change in the seasons, but no change in the weather pattern on this fine day of Tuesday.

Picturesque First Day of Fall

Similar to this past weekend and yesterday, the cool temperatures and sunny skies will stick around today for the calendar occasion. This is due to the area being largely dominated by high pressure which is in a way capping off our cooler air.

Today, highs will climb to the mid 70s accompanied by a light east wind. Skies will be partly cloudy for the majority of the day. Get out and enjoy the nice conditions while you can! Ole foe winter will be here before we know it!

Tonight, the clouds will build in as temperatures drop to a chilly 55 degrees.

Clouds Persist on Wednesday

We will start to see a slight change in the way conditions have been playing out around here on Wednesday. We won’t see nearly as much sun thanks to a blanket of clouds that will cover the region from Tropical Storm Beta. Temperatures remain comfortable right around 75 degrees for your hump day.

Models are agreeing right now that we have the likelihood to see a light passing shower in the late afternoon/early evening hours. These chances stick around overnight Wednesday as the low dips to about 57 degrees.

Late Week

We will again likely see a bit of precipitation in the way of rain showers on Thursday but totals will miniscule. It all depends on Beta as that is indeed where this moisture is coming from.

Temperatures stay consistent but Friday we warm to a mild 77.
