It’s Labor Day for you (and hopefully you’ve enjoyed it even though it’s been damp), but it’s Monday for me.
Even with the slower arrival of Isaac for most of us, we still came in with a lot of water in many places from the remnants of that hurricane. As expected the amounts were generally heavier north and west as we saw between 1 and 3 inches of rain in most places (it was less than an inch in southeast Kentucky).
We’ll continue to see scattered showers into Tuesday, but by the latter part of the day what’s left of Isaac should cross the Appalachians. It’s not drought ending rainfall across Kentucky, the Ohio or Mississippi Valleys, but it helps.
There’s going to be a lot of changes this week. After we get this muggy airmass out of here with the departure of Isaac, it will be getting hot for the middle of the week.
A strong cold front will approach Friday with more rain and a real taste of fall this weekend with rain and much cooler temperatures to start the weekend. Of course with the UK home opener it would be nice to see better weather that that…but considering it’s Monday we have plenty of time to hone in on specific details and timing.
The computer models are pretty aggresive with Leslie bringing a hurricane close to New England this weekend…so we’ll keep an eye on that.
Beyond that…enjoy your back to work/school Tuesday.
