Eastern Kentucky Weather

The Weekend Should Be Fine

This weekend won't be quite as warm as Friday, but overall it looks fairly decent. The sunshine will be filtered and temps will only cool down to levels that are normal for this time of year.

It was another record breaker in east KY. The official daytime high came in close to 90 degrees with many unofficial temps coming in at around 90. Here's the official data from the NWS Jackson.

These blazing hot temps weren't too overwhelming. That's thanks to the lack of high humidity levels. If this area wasn't known for the high summer humidity... 90 degrees wouldn't be such a big story!

The rain will arrive on Saturday afternoon. I'm not really impressed with the set-up and I think that if this causes any problems for your outdoors plans it will only be a temporary issue. At one point I was really concerned that this would hold together and be rather strong. That's not my worry anymore... I'm not really concerned at all! I'm playing golf...LOL

I haven't been throwing the WRF up here... and I usually do.... it hasn't been seeing things the way that I see things. Is it right? There's some truth in there!

The moisture splits right over KY and gets the heck out of Dodge!

The GFS has had a rain favorable scenario all week... until now. It now shows the rain falling a part by Saturday evening. Remember that "truth" I referenced earlier? This could very well be what we are looking at here.

I am keeping showers in the forecast. The biggest deal from this system may be cloud cover and the cooling temps that will follow it in to KY.

Have a great Easter!

C-Ya Bye
