Chris Bailey's Forecast | Steamy temps and scattered storms ahead

By  | 

Summer temps are back in the bluegrass state and we are sweating out the numbers here in the middle of September. These steamy temps will bring an increasing threat for a few thunderstorms in the coming days. That’s especially true later in the week as a cold front approaches from the west.

The threat for showers and storms will then increase on Wednesday as temps stay very steamy with a similar setup for Thursday.

The setup for later this week continues to feature a cold front dropping in from the northwest with some kind of tropical system off the southeast coast. That doesn’t mean this is going to become a full blown depression or named storm, but it has a chance as it crosses Florida and into the Gulf.

If this system gets in the Gulf, there’s a good chance it brings rain into our region early next week.
