Jim Caldwell's Forecast | A taste of October is in the air

By  | 

LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - Your calendar might read September, but these temps have October written all over them.

The October chill is here again. This time, it might dig a little deeper than when we saw it in August. Our highs will run in the mid 60s today. You will also likely see another run at the 40s for the overnight hours. There is still a very small chance that we track some showers from that northwest flow. It will continue feeding in some moisture from the Great Lakes. Most of us will remain on the dry side.

It doesn't look like there is much else happening the rest of this week. Once Friday gets here it will be all about the sunshine and some warmer temps. Still below average, but a nice run in the 70s for our area. The weekend is trending warm as well. Highs in the mid and upper 70s with all kinds of sunshine. It should make that home opener at Kroger Field even nicer. The weather for it has just enough chill to make it feel like football and just enough warmth to make it nice!

Naturally, Irma is still at the front of our minds. It is hard not to watch what it is doing as it makes a run at Florida and the east coast. Either way, it will still be a monster between now and then. While people in the path will not see anything close to the amount of rain that Harvey brought, there will be plenty of the other tropical elements. A lot of wind and an impressive storm surge for many.

The impact for Kentucky is something that we will have to watch for the early part of the week. Rounds of heavier rain could be cruising in the area by Tuesday to Wednesday at this point. That could change just like this track could make some changes too.

Have a great day!
