Yay for cold fronts in July!
There are actually 2 fronts today. One that contains the "umph" or wind shift, and the other containing the less humid air.
The wind shift one will be the main driver on t-storms today and timing/placement by this afternoon favors our KY counties picking up the greatest coverage of thunderstorms. And some could still produce a warning or two for strong winds, but instability doesn't look as off the chain as it did yesterday. Still something to watch for those of you south of the Parkways especially.
For the rest of us, the drier air is moving in with that second front this afternoon across Indiana first. Then Kentucky this evening.
You will notice the change as the wind actually will pick up from the N/NE at times this afternoon. A nice breeze to enjoy!
Saturday looks to be the pick of the weekend when you look at the amount of sunshine, lowest of temperatures and driest of air.
Sunday is when we start to revert back to the hot stuff. But it will be slow to happen. I did add a small rain chance in as just a small increase in the moisture levels will put us back into the isolated t-storms. Most of you will remain dry.
Our next heat wave locks in for Monday/Tuesday and will hold for most...if not all of next week.
Another front will attempt to move in by the following weekend, but just how much progression THAT one can make it a bit unclear.
I'll worry about that on Monday :)
