Good Monday everyone. Our new week is set to kick off with more in the way of thunderstorms rolling across the bluegrass state. These storms will have the potential to be strong or severe this afternoon into tonight. The atmosphere is loaded with moisture and this means we will need to keep an eye on the heavy rain threat.
Let’s break it down with the headlines:
- Scattered showers and storms will be possible through the first half of today. Temps will warm into the low and mid 80s with very muggy air in place.
- A cold front edges closer to us late today into tonight. This will provide the atmosphere with a trigger to get more widespread showers and storms to go up.The strongest cells will produce damaging winds and large hail.
- These storms can also bring enough heavy rains to produce some local high water issues.
- Leftover showers and storms will hang around into Tuesday as the cold front finally crosses the region. Much cooler air will work in behind the front and we could spend a few days later this week with readings struggling to get out of the 60s for highs.
I have you all set to follow today’s rounds of storms…
I will drop by with updates as needed and will send out updates via twitter. Have a wonderful Monday and take care.
