Nicer Weather Returns for the Start of the Week

After a fairly active past few days across south-central Kentucky, quieter weather returns for the start of the workweek. The next several days will feature clear skies and plenty of sunshine!

An Isolated Pop-Up Possible Today

After a cool and clear start to the day, temperatures quickly climb out of the upper 60s and through the 70s to make it to an afternoon high in the upper 80s across the region. The day will feature an abundance of sunshine, however an afternoon pop-up shower or storm cannot be ruled out, with coverage being about 20-30%.

Sunny Days Ahead…

MONDAY: As we begin the business day on Monday, we wake up to clear skies, and temperatures that are rising quickly from a crisp morning low in the lower 60s. In the afternoon, you can anticipate an abundance of sunshine with highs around 86-88 degrees area-wide.

TUESDAY: Tuesday will feature more of the same across our section of the Commonwealth. Like the previous day, temperatures rebound from the crisp, cool 60-degree mark, to a high temperature value in the upper 80s. An afternoon stray shower or storm is possible, however most of W.A.B.B.L.E.S. should remain dry.

Tropical Update:

For those that might be interested, the Atlantic basin remains abnormally active this week, with an already record-breaking 2020 hurricane season underway! We currently have two named systems:

KYLE: A post tropical cyclone, Kyle is heading east deep into the Atlantic, on a weakening trend. This presents no U.S. impacts, and presents little, if any risk to land.

JOSEPHINE: A tropical storm packing maximum sustained winds of 40MPH and a mean sea-level pressure of 1009mb, Josephine too presents no risk to land or U.S. impacts of any kind.

(*NOTE* there are TWO tropical disturbances in the central Atlantic that have marginal chances for further development. Each will be monitored closely.)
