Warmer For A Week

Chief Meteorologist Shane Smith has the latest on how long the warmer weather will last.

Wasn't it a great day across Eastern Kentucky on this Monday?  I really enjoyed the nice weather we had, such a change of pace from the majority of what we've seen the last few months.  Highs today topped out just shy of 70 for most, and actually hit 70 in the Cumberland Valley.  The weather over the next several days continues to look warm, check out the 7-Day Forecast.

 

 

The chances of rain the next two days are slim, I think we will only see a few showers here in Eastern Kentucky.  Thursday will be a bit soggier as a storm system begins to approach from the southwest.  Check out the GFS model as we head into Thursday afternoon.

 

 

The bulk of the action looks like it will stay north, but I think a few rounds of showers and storms are likely.  Temperatures will be tricky on Thursday.  If we see more clouds and rain you can expect lower 70s, if we clear skies out at all, we could make a run to the upper 70s and maybe even 80.

 

On Friday the rest of the storm will move on through, and with it we will likely see some gusty winds along with thunderstorms.  Here's the GFS for Friday.

 

 

After this storm things will cool down back closer to seasonal averages.  However we may go below average by the middle of next week, the latest ensemble run of the GFS really is going cold.


 

 

Hopefully that cool down won't last too long.  I'm going to be sure to enjoy the warmth while we have it!
