Weekend Weather & Events
The first weekend of summer is here and the weather will aim to please those who love the heat and enjoy a thundery interlude!
First things first, this Friday evening the skies are baby blue and a gentle breeze is sweetly caressing the landscape. Live on the Levee goers in Charleston or aficionados of Blues, Brews and Bar-B-Cues on the grounds of UC are sure to enjoy an early summer night’s dream! Evening temperatures with low humidities will be in the comfy 70s as Ol Sol sets in a blaze of sartorial elegance.
Fog will greet Saturday’s first light especially on river banks and around secluded meadows. A heavy dew will coat fairways and greens at your favorite golf course.
As the Central City Farmer's Market opens in Huntington, the sun will take control. That spells doom for the morning fog and dew which will succumb to the heat seeking solar rays. Temperatures will jump into the 80s by 11 o’clock.
A few cottony soft cumulus clouds will parade harmlessly across the skyline during the afternoon as highs crest near 90 (88 at airports, elevation 1000 feet) just before the Farmer's Market closes.
Wine and All that Jazz goers at UC should load up with sun block as the June sun is the strongest of the year!
By Sunday a transfusion of steamy tropical air will arrive with a few thunderstorms. One will announce the steam bath in the morning but be scattered. A second cluster should cross Ohio and Kentucky in the afternoon arriving in our region late day-early evening.
Given the history of storms this spring-summer, street flooding and power hits must be mentioned in the Sunday afternoon-night forecast.
So enjoy the weather this weekend, but keep an eye to the sky on Sunday in case Mother Nature decides to storm upon your picnic or pool party.
