The first work week of August looks like an interesting one. It will feature more rain, heat and even cooler air at the end of it.
A slow moving frontal boundary will begin to sweep into Kentucky on Monday. With it comes a chance of showers and thunderstorms. Believe it or not, it won't be a bad thing to get some rain in here. What we had in July was too much of a good thing. What we need to see is chances come our way, but not like those intense waves from July.
This front will park right over head and separate the true summer airmass from a more refreshing fall-like one. We'll again find ourselves in the battle zone for thunderstorm development. While I don't expect this week to look at all like those rounds from last month, I do expect some heavier rains with some storms. It's hard to completely stay away from heavier rounds of showers and thunderstorms. They'll be lurking out there with a set-up like this.
By the end of the week one of those waves will force the front through Kentucky. That brings in the earlier advertised refreshing airmass. It most likely hangs around here through the weekend. I'm talking highs in the upper 70s and perhaps low 60s with some upper 50s creeping in at night. This is an early taste of fall for us.
