A very weak cool front is pushing south into Kentucky this afternoon. After spending most of the day dry, the front has started producing a few thunderstorms. One formed over south-central Jefferson County and produced a 60 mph wind gust. It’s now (4:15) moving south into Bullitt County and appears much weaker than it was a half hour ago. A second storm is pushing out of Clark Co IN into Oldham with some strong gusts and heavy rain. After these two storms, any additional storms should form south of the Ohio River and drift ESE.
The front itself will create only a small change – tomorrow, our humidity will be a little lower but temperatures will still reach about 90. By Friday and Saturday, we should climb back to the lower 90’s with only small chances for rain. However, rain chances do look a little higher for Sunday. Labor Day still shapes up as hot and (mostly) dry.
During the late 19th century, peanuts were so popular with the rowdy crowds at vaudeville shows that the unruly balcony sections became known as the “peanut gallery.” (Mental Floss)
