Eastern Kentucky Weather

A Return To Normal

It's hard to believe that normal highs for this part of October are in the mid & upper 60s, but this is the case. So what we are getting ready to enter is pretty much the norm.

After the round of cold temps we battled earlier in the week... it is comforting to know that we are going to warm things back up into the 60s and 70s. This is a nice change for our region. I  am a snow lover, but just that little taste I got from the weekend event will do me until it's really time for the wintry stuff to come around. Until then... this mild stuff is just what the doctor ordered.

An area of high pressure was beginning to turn the winds from the south on Tuesday afternoon. This trend continues over the entire work week. On Wednesday, highs will be on the same playing field as 70. Thursday, I think nearly the entire region gets there. FRIDAY... not so much!

The end of the week... once again.... has my fulll attention. While most of the work week stays calm and dry, Friday has all of the potential in the world. It has so much, in fact, that the potential may spill over into our region on Thursday night. Some data may try to push it into  EKY on Thursday night. However, the bulk of this activity will occur on Friday.

One of the first things we'll all notice will be the increase in wind speed. It becomes very breezy on Thursday and that will last into the day on Friday as the low pulls away from Kentucky.

The other issue could be the storng or severe threat that we have on Friday. Right now I would say it's right down the line. I'll keep an eye on things!

Enjoy the rest of the week! The post frontal air looks chilly!

C-Ya Bye
