Watching The Heavy Rain Threat

Good Tuesday, everyone. Rounds of showers and thunderstorms continue to impact the region and these may cause some issues. Heavy rain will move back into parts of the state today, with much more widespread action later this week into the weekend.

Highs today are in the 70s with a scattering of showers and storms. This action will really increase later today into tonight and could put down enough rain to cause local high water issues. I’ll especially be watching areas of southern and southeastern Kentucky…

Here’s regional radar to track the rain and thunder…

Wednesday looks to feature similar conditions with scattered stuff and highs in the 70s.

Warm winds blow on Thursday with temps reaching 80-85 degrees for much of the state. This is ahead of a cold front, bringing a line of strong to severe¬†thunderstorms in here into Thursday evening and early Friday…

Temps will drop some on Friday as we try to dry things up for a bit. That drying won’t last very long as a potent upper level system works into the region…

That sets up a stout southwesterly flow of moisture into the region, setting up a heavy rain threat…

That’s a setup to keep a close eye on for the high water potential.

Temps will come way down as this system pass through here, and could be considered chilly for a day or two.

I’m looking into next week and seeing a possible healthy setup for severe weather from the plains into the our part of the world. Check out the big ridge in the east and the deep trough in the west, sliding into the plains…

Have a great Tuesday and take care.
