General showers will be the main action over the next few hours. A few could remain on the strong to severe side in eastern parts of Kentucky.
September has been off to a wet and muggy start. Historically, the month trends more on the dry side. During the first part of the month we can truly have a little taste of anything as we are making a transition from Summer to Fall.
Just like Wednesday, showers and storms will likely develop during the afternoon and evening hours today. Not everyone will see these storms. Most of what we have will be on the isolated side. The best concentration of showers and storms will probably show up in eastern Kentucky. Any of these that develop could produce lightning and heavy rain. The nature of these storms is to rain for a while and then disappear from radar.
There will be some showers and storms developing again on Friday. Once again, those rounds of rain will develop during the afternoon and evening hours. The better chances will happen in eastern Kentucky. The big question for many heading out to high school football games is will this have an impact. Just like the past two Fridays, I think we'll run into some issues for area games. That could mean delays and not complete postponements.
The best chances of storms arrive on Saturday. A game-changing cold front will dive into the area. This brings widespread showers and thunderstorms for the entire area. I wouldn't be surprised to see some stronger storms as this system passes through. Again, we run into a large outdoor event here in Lexington. That being the UK game at Commonwealth Stadium. While I don't think it rains for the entire game, I do think that tailgaters and most of the first half will likely be wet. At this point I'll issue a poncho advisory to keep you nice and dry. That could be upgraded by Friday.
Much cooler air will filter into the region for Sunday. A true taste of what fall feels like or at least what we think it should feel like. We'll see highs drop into the 70s and lows will dip into the 50s. Throw in lower humidity values and you have yourself a great forecast.
