Good Monday evening everyone. A Severe Thunderstorm Watch is out for much of western Kentucky until 10pm CDT this evening. Damaging winds and large hail will be the main threats. Here’s a look at the watch outline and the latest warnings.
I will have updates as needed and will send out warnings via twitter. Have a great evening and take care.
Good Monday everyone and welcome to the first full week of June. The week is starting off on a stormy note for parts of the state as a system works in from the northwest. This will knock our temps back down to below normal levels over the next several days. That said… I am tracking a big warm up for the upcoming weekend.
Showers and thunderstorms will be more common across western and southern Kentucky today. The rest of the state will see isolated to scattered action. There’s a chance some of the storms in the west and far south get a little on the strong side today. Here’s the latest from the Storm Prediction Center…
High temps today will be a little tricky with the storms around. It’s safe to say mid and upper 70s will be common with some low 80s for any area getting in on a decent amount of sunshine.
Readings by Tuesday come back down toward the low and mid 70s and that looks to carry us into Wednesday, as well. A leftover shower or thundershower may hang tough into Tuesday and Wednesday.
Much warmer air is on tap for late this week into the weekend. The European Model shows a big ridge in the east and a trough in the west…
That pattern should supply us with temps reaching the mid and upper 80s by Saturday and Sunday with a shot at 90 in the west. We should throw a lot more humidity back into the mix and that could lead to a shower or storm by late weekend and early next week.
This is also a setup that could lead to another tropical system trying to pop close to home off the southeastern coastline. Sensing a seasonal trend? Me too.
Have a great Monday and take care.
